Insurgency: Sandstorm Beta Review

2 min read

Insurgency: Sandstorm is the successor to the 2014 released game from New World Interactive.
It´s a hardcore first person shooter, where teamwork is key and almost every bullet is deadly.

The Gameplay is the good old gameplay that you know and love from Insurgency.
The open Beta was playable from the 10th until the 13th of August.

I´ve played about 3 hours and can already tell that this game packs a punch.

There are new Features to use, like new Vehicles and new weapons.
The gameplay is even more intense and more beautiful thanks to the Unreal Engine 4.

When you play this game, you will be shocked how realistic and “in your face” the sounds are.


Some pros and cons about the beta:


  • Better graphics
  • Intense Sound design
  • Good gunplay


  • Performance (low fps)
  • Hit registration
  • Animations and player models


To round it all up.

The Gameplay is the good old gameplay that you know and love from Insurgency.

The Graphics are good and the sounds are absoluty stunning.


But the there are some fundamental problems in this beta.

The performance is not optimized. I´m running a GTX 1060 and an i7 4770k with 16GB of DDR3 ram.

The Settings were on Middle on a 1920×1080 resolution.

Eventhough this game runs the Unreal Engine 4 and my Hardware should be fully capable to cap the game at atleast 60fps, it dropped to 10-20 fps on some points.

Some animations seem kind of weird and “stiff”. The playermodels look like stick figures who wear some camouflage.
The Map seems “Open World” with no real boundries, but all of a sudden, you stand in an area where you are not supposed to be and cant shot. Not even if there is an enemy.

This situation ended up in dying, because I couldn´t shot back at the enemy.
The Hit registration seems not to register some shots sometimes.


The Game is set to be released on 09/18/18. A second Beta will be available from the 30th of August until the release on Steam.


If New World Interactive are going to fix the performance issues and the hitreg. problems, we got a pretty awesome hardcore shooter on our hands. And hopefully they change some Animations and the Playermodels.

Buy Insurgency: Sandstorm on Steam.
