Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer New World Interactive have announced that Insurgency: Sandstorm's free Cold Blood Update is now live.
The Cold Blood Update adds a new winter map, called Bab, set in a snowy village build around an ancient citadel.
It features plenty of long sight lines and open spaces that make it ideal for snipers and adepts of long-range combat. There's also ample opportunity for close-quarters battles as these areas are connected by tight alleyways that lead into indoor battles.

The Cold Blood Update also introduces two new battle rifles to Insurgency: Sandstorm. Security forces now have access to the M110 SASS while the Insurgents can now add a bit of World War II flair to their fight with the M1 Garand.
Toggleable optics have also snuck their way in. Players can now switch between zoom levels when using both existing and new scopes added in the Cold Blood Update.
New unlockable and purchasable cosmetics offer more style options for your characters, with the addition of a snow suit and leaf suit.
The update also continues the developer's effort of improving Insurgency: Sandstorm's performance.
Its focus on optimizing memory usage has led to a smoother experience on the Hideout, Farmhouse, Precinct, and Crossing maps.
