FTS: Insurgency: Sandstorm’s Final Major Year 2 Content Update Is Out Now

“Operation: Accolade” celebrates player-created content in a stunning new setting!

PARIS -- March 30, 2023 -- New World Interactive and Focus Entertainment are excited to celebrate Insurgency: Sandstorm’s fourth birthday by paying tribute to our incredible community of players. Update 1.14, “Operation: Accolade,” is the fourth and final major content update in the Year 2 Pass, available for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.

“Operation: Accolade” adds a new map, weapons, and character cosmetics, all as a free update. Premium DLC cosmetics are also now available for individual purchase, as well as for those who have purchased the game’s Year 2 Pass or Gold Edition.

Take up arms and prepare to fight under the glow of the golden hour in Last Light, a new map adapted from the fan-favorite submission to the Insurgency: Sandstorm mapping contest. New elements include the ability to enter and utilize building interiors, in addition to an entirely new marine yacht area, completing the luxurious coastal town atmosphere.

Engage in close-to-medium-quarters combat through the streets of a Monte Carlo-like setting with your new weapons: the Micro Dynamic Rifle (MDR) and the SG 552. The MDR for Security is an American bullpup modular rifle; the Swiss-manufactured SG 552 for Insurgents, meanwhile, is well known for its ease of use and versatility.
