Insurgency Sandstorm Release Date: When is Insurgency Sandstorm out?
Critically-acclaimed Insurgency Sandstorm will finally arrive on consoles. Here is when the console Insurgency Sandstorm release date will be.
Insurgency Sandstorm Release Date for consoles: September 29, 2021
Insurgency Sandstorm comes out on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on September 29, 2021.
Insurgency Sandstorm pits two teams together in a slow-paced, immersive, and realistic tactical first-person shooting. Unlike most other shooters where fast-paced and intense gunfights are encouraged, Insurgency Sandstorm likes players to bide their time and consider their positioning better. It highlights realism and tactical skills, encouraging units to stay together and try to outflank opposing units. In this way, suspense builds up over time and increases tension for each passing moment, culminating in an all-out, intense firefight towards the end of the game. Immersion is further increased thanks to the absence of a UI, giving players no visual feedback on their health and ammunition, relying solely on their knowledge and game experience to tell these things.
At launch, Insurgency Sandstorm on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles will play similarly to their previous-gen counterparts. However, an update coming sometime in 2022 will implement next-gen features for the next-gen versions of the game. Albeit mentioning in 2018 that the removed campaign for Insurgency Sandstorm will be re-considered in the future, these have not yet been mentioned as features for next-gen consoles. We do hope that it can still be implemented after the introduction of next-gen features, however.
