Insurgency: Sandstorm Delayed to December

The anticipating release of team-based FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm is now delayed to end of the year only week before launch.

So far, the beta for upcoming multiplayer tactical first-person shooter Insurgency: Sandstorm was doing fine with a realistic approach to gameplay, co-op and PvP modes while waiting to release on September 18 for almost all available platforms like Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, only less than a week ago, the game has been delayed to the end of the year by developer New World Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive for optimizing issues.

Even if your try to run Insurgency sequel on a high-end setup, you have to set most of the setting options to "low" just to keep it runing, according to the Reddit and Steam Community. Then the decision is made by all parties involved considering those serious spec issues to officially move the release date to December 12, 2018. Meanwhile, the developers intend to continue working on the issues to make improvements over that and deliver an update that offers a seamless PC experience for players.

In the delayed period of time, New World Interactive intends to upgrade the game to Unreal Engine 4.20 for better optimization. Improvement over animations, character model design and textures are also on their priority list as well as adding some extra cosmetic items. Trying to remove all bugs, glitches and adding a few more server options to make a better version of the game is also part of the plan. These two months are entirely dedicated to the best interest of their community.

RELATED: DayZ Coming to Xbox One

Since the console versions of the game are already delayed earlier to 2019, it is highly unlikely that they would push back that day even further. While they polish the game to run in a lower system requirement, the beta is now extended until the launch date along with the 10% pre-order discount over the $26.99 full-price. Those who own the original Insurgency game can enjoy 10% loyalty discount till the end March 2019. Considering other rushed titles, it's a good Early Access game.

After two fan-favorite installments, what Darksiders franchise suffered is a six year-long gap when THQ was completely bankrupt in 2012.

Fury is tasked to hunt down Seven Deadly Sins on a ravaged Earth, where she unleashes her true nature to slay down beasts of all sorts that came in her way. During her mission set by the Charred Council, she came across some giant bizarre creatures, which are possibly the boss characters and we see her excellent combat skills with her long-range whip. It is safe to admit that Fury packs a better move set than her brothers considering their usability in combat and they are far more practical too.

Fraction of her gameplay footage also showcases surroundings from a ruined world and demonic entities that inherits it now. One other thing to notice here is that, the gameplay mechanics have improved to make all of her moves fluid smooth. At one point, she is also met by Horseman War and Death but what significance they bring to her story is still unclear. This might also be from a flashback sequence that is to serve as part of back-story for protagonist Fury to visit Earth.
