First released on PC via Steam in 2018, Insurgency: Sandstorm is a team-based, tactical FPS based on lethal close quarters combat and objective-oriented multiplayer gameplay.

Each Year Pass includes 16 cosmetic sets, with an extra 4 instant reward items for the Year 2 Pass.

While the game is fully compatible Day One with certain enhancements for current gen consoles, Insurgency: Sandstorm will receive further next-gen enhancements, with support for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S console features in 2022.
