Insurgency Sandstorm may have been delayed to December, but developers New World Interactive are already thinking about post-launch. We previously spoke to them about their plans for free DLC, now we can reveal that Insurgency Sandstorm mod support is coming, according to developers New World Interactive
Mod Support for the game will definitely happen, according to the team, but it will be available after the game's December 12 release date - and it will include support for Steam Workshop and most likely custom maps. "We definitely believe in modding," they told us.
"We will be adding mod support and Steam Workshop support to the game post release," lead game designer Michael Tsarouhas told us. As for what mods support there will be, the team is hoping that it "will most likely start with custom map support and integration into the Steam Workshop. Beyond that we are exploring total conversion support, game and rule changes, weapon model replacements, character model replacements, audio replacement packs, etc."
However, it should be pointed out that these plans are not final yet, especially now that Insurgency Sandstorm has been delayed until the end of the year. "We are still exploring these options within our own systems and the systems of Unreal Engine 4, and can't speak to the specifics of what is to come just yet."
