Insurgency: Sandstorm, the smash hit close quarters FPS from New World Interactive, is getting its biggest and best update ever in Operation: Nightfall. Every map in the game, alongside the brand-new Tideway, now has a night variant. This comes with the addition of new night-themed gear to help you play - night vision goggles, flashlights, infrared gadgets, and more. See it in all its glory in the new trailer. In celebration, the game is also available at 50% off on Steam until June 20th!

Operation: Nightfall brings more than just the dark!

The new night mode is available in official co-op with improved enemy AI responsive to light and using night equipment, as well as the ability to play night maps in PvP on limited-time playlists and on community servers. This update also brings with it five new weapons, also available for free. They include two modern subsonic stealth weapons for the Breacher class, the AS Val for Insurgents and the Honey Badger for Security. Additionally, the Breacher will also have two new more classic weapon choices: the Sterling submachine gun for Insurgents and the Grease Gun for Security. Finally, the Insurgents will see a new integrally suppressed bolt-action pistol: the Welrod. This is alongside new night-themed cosmetics for all players on both sides.

In addition, the first paid cosmetic DLC packs are launching alongside the update. Become the night with the Ghillie pack for the Security forces, or with 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 blues for Security. These four DLC can be purchased at a lower price with the Night Ops set. Get a unique look while also supporting Sandstorm’s continued development!

Insurgency: Sandstorm and the Nightfall update are available now! Insurgency: Sandstorm is available now at 50% off from June 16th through June 20th on Steam.
