If you've been clinging onto hope that Insurgency: Sandstorm would actually come to bear fruit after a lengthy delay - rest assured, it is being finished. The new E3 trailer shares fresh details.
Announced way back in February 2016, the sequel to Insurgecy - Insurgency: Sandstorm - was revealed in plenty of time. Then projecting a 2017 release at the start of 2016, 12 months later saw hit slip into 2018 - just as 2017 became a reality.
Swapping out the prequel's Source Engine framework for the more modern Unreal Engine 4, Insurgency: Sandstorm is shaping up in numerous ways. Its story mode is co-op ready, and everything just looks a damn sight sharper than it once did.
Taking place in the mordern era much like its predecessor - rather than the World War II setting its expansion introduced - the game's new story mode can be taken on by a lone player or a group of upto 4. Starting out alone, our narrator character will soon meet up with like-minded characters as their goals cause their paths to cross.
Though the trailer doesn't specifically mention a release date anymore, the last delay - back in February - pushed it into 2018. Of course, multiplayer will remain as the main attraction with new game modes, vehicles and cosmetic items to lap up.
