Insurgency: Sandstorm is a team-based, tactical FPS based on lethal close quarters combat and objective-oriented multiplayer gameplay. Sequel to the indie breakout FPS Insurgency, Sandstorm is reborn, improved, expanded, and bigger in every way. Experience the intensity of modern combat where skill is rewarded, and teamwork wins the fight. Prepare for a hardcore depiction of combat with deadly ballistics, light attack vehicles, destructive artillery, and HDR audio putting the fear back into the genre.
An intense atmosphere putting the terror into modern combat
Move with speed and caution as you push through the war-torn environments of a fictional contemporary conflict in the Middle East. Death comes fast, ammunition must be carefully managed, and the environment must be tactically navigated at every step toward victory.
Insurgency: refined and expanded
For the first time in an Insurgency game, customize your character to show your veterancy with diverse sets of clothing, uniforms, accessories, and character voices. Coordinate fire support with your team, engage enemies with vehicle mounted machine guns, and go head to head in small scale high speed competitive matches. Wield new weapons and new upgrades to outmaneuver, outflank, and outsmart the enemy.
War at its realest
Continuing Insurgency’s acclaim as the most atmospheric shooter, Sandstorm is built on Unreal 4 to bring its gritty close-quarters combat into a whole new era of realism. Skill is rewarded, and survival is paramount. Feel every bullet, and fear every impact.

    Been wanting to get into this game but scared of everyone who's gonna be awesome at it by now. Good chance to practice on the free weekend kiddies :D


      I've only played 28hrs so far, due to game mechanics you can still make clever plays and help play the obj. even if you aren't the fastest or best shot


        True that. Played tonight. If you think about the objective in the pub servers you can make a big difference. Even defending a point on domination while the rest of the team runs like seagulls to the next one is easier than attacking and can win the game for your team.


    Great game, highly recommend for fun/funny tactical shooter


    yep… it's a brilliant balance between Battlefield 4 (arcadey) and Squad (over the top detailed realism)

    just be aware… the Australia playerbase aint great during non peak times. I do however find it's very playable on Asian servers.

      I'm feeling more and more that sandstorm is THE game for me. I'm a CS veteran and it's a nice change to something with more variety, less focus on precise aim and reactions and a bit more on patience, strategy, teamwork. It's also easier to play a fun game on a pub server than CS, so you don't have to be up for a full competitive 5v5. I find call of duty too casual and gimmicky. Games like Arma and squad are too serious for me and I always feel like I need friends to play with.
