Insurgency: Sandstorm, the sequel to 2014’s multi-million selling, co-op-focused FPS Insurgency will include a story mode that can be played solo.
During the campaign, players will be part of a squad of soldiers aiming to make it through a war zone while cut off from external support. Further details of the story, including setting have not been announced at the present time, though the debut trailer hints at a contemporary Middle-Eastern war zone. The developers are promising a “deeply personal” story that will include both U.S. and local fighters with differing views of the war:
Although the developers state that the campaign can be played alone, Insurgency: Sandstorm appears built primarily for co-operative play, with up to four people able to tackle the story mode together online, and two-player splitscreen. In addition, the game will expand on the contents of Insurgency, adding content such as character customisation, driveable light vehicles, and a range of additional game modes that will be revealed at a later date.
As with the previous title, Insurgency: Sandstorm is being developed by New World Interactive. Unlike the first game, however, this sequel will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in addition to PC, courtesy of publisher Focus Home Interactive.
