Focus Home Interactive Shows Off New Gameplay for Call of Cthulhu and Insurgency: Sandstorm
Focus Home Interactive has released two new looks for two of its upcoming titles in honor of Gamescom. Today’s new previews are for Call of Cthulhu and Insurgency: Sandstorm.
The Call of Cthulhu is a pure gameplay preview, so it’s not full of fast cuts and action beats like a trailer would be. The Insurgency: Sandstorm video on the other hand is more of a trailer, but you still get splashes of gameplay throughout it. Sandstorm will be getting a pre-order beta next week, you can find more details after the gameplay trailer.
Description: This gameplay trailer takes place during the early stages of Pierce’s investigation, though the influence of the Great Old Ones is already creeping into effect. To uncover the truth, players must unearth clues, interrogate locals, solve crime scenes and overcome dangers both physical and mental.
Call of Cthulhu releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 30. Digital and retail preorders are available on PC and consoles.
Description: Insurgency: Sandstorm is New World Interactive’s new game: a reborn, improved, and expanded sequel to indie multiplayer FPS hit Insurgency, coming September 18 to PC and 2019 to consoles. Thanks to all the positive feedback the game received during the first Pre-order Beta last month, the studio has polished and optimized the game to meet players’ expectations. We are now happy to announce Pre-order Beta Test 2 beginning next week. Meanwhile, experience the intensity of modern combat and check out the positive reception from journalists and players during the previous Pre-order Beta with the Gamescom Trailer.
From August 30 through September 18, players who have pre-ordered Insurgency: Sandstorm on Steam will receive exclusive access to Pre-order Beta 2. New World Interactive will be focusing their work during Beta 2 on bug fixing and server stability. The studio will also start working on their extensive post-launch support plan with new content coming after the release of the game. As Pre-order Beta 2 will have no NDA and no streaming restrictions, those curious are invited to watch live gameplay on Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, and Facebook throughout up until the release of the game.
Eager players can pre-order on Steam now for a 10% discount, reducing the price to €26.99 / £23.39 / $26.99. An additional 10% loyalty discount will be given to fans that own the original Insurgency, bringing the pre-order price down to just $24.99. This additional discount will be offered until the end of 2018, and all pre-orders will receive instant access to any ongoing beta tests as well as future ones.
