insurgency-sandstormIndie smash-hit hardcore FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm celebrates another massive update with Operation: Breakaway.

Get all the info in the brand new overview trailer, and download the update to start playing now! New players are invited too, with a 50% discount on Steam running from now until October 12.

New mode, new map, new weapons – same great action

Outpost focuses on defense in a brand new co-op mode designed for fast, fun, and frenetic gameplay. You start with limited equipment and gain more as you work through waves of increasingly difficult enemies. Losing an objective forces you to retreat back to a new objective area to hold…

There is also an abundance of new weapons and attachments in this update. Security receives the low recoil AUG A3 assault rifle while Insurgents get the high fire rate FAMAS F1. Weapon customization has been greatly expanded with six new weapon upgrades including new underbarrel shotguns and foregrips available for all classes.

Last but not least, the new map, Tell features a style of tight urban CQB that’s different from our other maps. It squeezes everyone together for more fast paced close quarters action where the new underbarrel shotguns come into play, but still allows for multiple navigation and flanking routes for more tactical and methodical players.

Cosmetics, DLC, and much more

Also included in this patch is a stack of new cosmetics matching the rogue security theme. Enjoy free outfits on each side with rogue cop uniforms for Insurgents and internal affairs officers for Security. To celebrate the update and its new map and mode, a Breakaway-themed bundle is out now, including four paid DLC packs also available separately. Grab new character and weapon skins and get ready to experience the all new free game mode, map, and weapon content while supporting the continued development of the game.
