The Middle East-set FPS is described as a "gritty, visceral combat experience" with first-person gameplay "as immersive as it gets." The original PC game was developed using the Source Engine, but Insurgency has been "completely rebuilt from the ground up" using Epic's Unreal Engine 4.

In addition to multiplayer, Sandstorm features a new story mode, though no other details were divulged.

Insurgency began its life as a Half-Life 2 mod and has gone on to become something of a hit, saving sold 2.3 million copies. The game sells for $15 on PC, though pricing for Sandstorm was not announced.

GameSpot's Insurgency review from 2014 scored the game a 7/10.

"Intense tactical encounters filled with firefights and flying bodies prove thrilling enough to make it easy to look beyond Insurgency's less impressive visual design," critic Nathan Meunier said. "The team dynamic and unique squad system inject something different into the mix too, offering match after match of absorbing cooperative killing that proves good looks aren't everything."
