Two videos from E3 give us a whole lot of new information on Insurgency: Sandstorm. Many pages are already updated, including the Classes of Insurgency: Sandstorm article. We also got eyes on which weapons will be in the game.
Now it should be noted that we are not entirely sure if weapons will be limited per team. In the E3 gameplay it looks like all weapons are usable by both teams, but that could also be for demonstration.
- Sandstorm keeps the Supply Points system from Insurgency.
- Players will not only be able to call in support, there is also a class which can deploy machine guns.

Sandstorm will be released in 2018, and NWI hopes to release a closed alpha at the end of this year. Unlike Insurgency, Insurgency: Sandstorm will be available for the PS4 and Xbox 1, as well as on Steam. To make this possible, the game doesn't run on Valve's Source engine, but on Unreal Engine 4.
