From Press Release:

PARIS  June 16, 2020  Insurgency: Sandstorm, the hit team-based tactical FPS from New World Interactive and Focus Home Interactive, has just released its biggest update yet with “Nightfall.” Every map in the game now offers* a night variant, including the new Tideway map. There’s also new gear like night vision goggles, flashlights, infrared gadgets and more to help you play in the dark. And to celebrate, Insurgency: Sandstorm is available for 50% off on Steam from now until June 20!

“Nightfall” brings with it five free new weapons, including two modern subsonic stealth weapons for the Breacher class, the AS Val for Insurgents, and the Honey Badger for Security. In addition, the Breacher has gained two new classic weapon choices: the Sterling submachine gun for Insurgents and the Grease Gun for Security. The Insurgents also get a new integrally suppressed bolt-action pistol: the Welrod. This is alongside new night-themed cosmetics for all players on both sides.

Insurgency: Sandstorm’s first paid cosmetic DLC packs also arrive with today’s update. Become the night with the Ghillie pack for the Security forces or the dark-themed Nightstalker pack for Insurgents. Both factions also have several weapon skins available, with a dark red digital theme for Insurgents and midnight blue for Security. These four DLC can be purchased at a lower price with the Night Ops set.

Insurgency: Sandstorm is coming to PlayStation®4 and Xbox One on Aug. 25, 2020. For more information, visit
