Insurgency: Sandstorm gets night maps, NVGs, new weapons and more in free update

There's a big new update for Insurgency: Sandstorm.

The free content train for Insurgency: Sandstorm continues with the game's biggest update yet, available now. The Nightfall update brings night maps to the game for the first time.

All existing maps, including the new Tideway, can now be played at nighttime. You'll also find an assortment of night vision goggles, infrared attachments, and of course, flashlights. The even bigger news is that night mode is available in co-op.

Outside of the new map, the update introduces even more content in five new weapons. They are the Honey Badger, the AS Val, the Sterling SMG, the Grease Gun and the infamous Welrod pistol to wrap up the trifecta of WW2 weapons.

Outside of that, New World introduced the game's first paid DLC. You'll find two packs of weapon skins, and two character skins - at $3 per pack. If you're curious, check out Insurgency: Sandstorm on Steam, where you'll find it on sale for 50% off until Saturday.
