Month: September 2021

insurgency-sandstormThe indie smash-hit FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm, releasing for consoles on September 29th, has just revealed its new Gameplay Overview Trailer. Prepare for the blood-pumping intensity enjoyed by millions of existing PC players with the definitive tactical co-op FPS coming to consoles. Pre-order the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One! Insurgency: Sandstorm is already available on Steam.

Gameplay Overview

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a gritty tactical first-person shooter set in a contemporary, fictional, middle-eastern conflict. Two factions battle it out in fierce firefights where every bullet is felt, and every impact is feared. Sandstorm’s low time-to-kill and gameplay focus on immersion rewards tactical and careful play instead of run-and-gun shooting. Every mission is objective-based and can be played in either full-scale PvP battles or up to 8-player co-op.

Immersion and Authenticity

Insurgency: Sandstorm puts immersion, authenticity, and attention to detail first. Each weapon’s animation, sound, and ballistics have been painstakingly crafted and simulated. You also have a wide assortment of tactical options available; slowly open a door to slip a grenade through, kick it down for a breach, or find another way through open, sprawling urban environments.

Character and Weapon Customization

Play as several different classes from each faction, each sporting its own set of specialized equipment and gear. You can customize each weapon and the items you bring for every playstyle, but every modification comes at a tactical cost, so prepare appropriately.

As you level up in Insurgency: Sandstorm, you will also unlock various outfit items from camouflages, BDUs, track-suits, helmets, and different armor types. Customize your soldier’s face, appearance and voice to make your mark on the battlefield.

The new update brings dozens of new vehicles, two maps and better visuals

Gaijin Entertainment announces that the “Direct Hit” major content update for the military online action War Thunder is available now. It makes the game better in all aspects. New content such as the Soviet attack jet MiG-27M with guided bombs, Swedish interceptor JA37C Jaktviggen, US heavy cruiser USS Pittsburgh and Italian IFV C13 T90 will provide new experience, new visual effects and upgraded 3D models of existing vehicles will make the game look better, while user interface updates will make it more user friendly. War Thunder also received the support of the version 2.2 of NVIDIA DLSS technology that brings high quality and high resolution graphics without sacrificing FPS performance.

JA37C Jaktviggen is a fighter-interceptor from a Viggen family of jets that were supplied for service in the 1980s and became a “calling card” of the Royal Swedish Air Force for a long time. The fighter’s unusual airframe design, efficient flaps and air brakes allow it to make quick turns with very good roll speed. The JA37 version of Viggen was developed to fulfill the tasks of a fighter-interceptor, so the main emphasis in the weapons list is placed on the air-to-air missiles, including the completely new RB71 with radar guidance, a huge launch range and G-tolerance of about 30G.

The ‘Direct Hit” update also brings realistic and better looking effects of water interacting with physical objects like bullets and shells. Ammunition storage explosions and ship fires are also updated. Aviation fans should check the new look of the iconic B-17 bomber planes. The number of polygons on the updated models tripled, and the textures became 4 times larger.

The range of maps for the combined battles of ground and air vehicles was also expanded. “Spaceport” is based on the map from the “Warfare 2077” April Fools event and offers more open fighting grounds surrounding the confined city center. “Breslau” is focused on urban combat and the design was inspired by the Siege of Breslau (Wrocław) which took place in the final months of WWII. The naval battles also got an important improvement: fire control system adds aiming reticule, UI hits for each gun’s status and a convenient lead marker.

Finally, the update also officially adds content created by War Thunder players as part of the revenue share program. Timur “_PtaXa_” Taniya developed the detailed cockpit model for the German He 111 H-16 bomber, while Daniil “Joy_Division__” Zaytsev created the German flying boat BV 138. Detailed explanation of revenue share rules is available here.

The full list of changes in the update is available HERE.
