This Xbox Game Pass Game Gets A Huge Free Update!

An underrated Xbox Game Pass game is getting a massive free update that successfully fixes several of its previous problems.



Tactical shooter Insurgency: Sandstorm has received a massive free update on Xbox Series X/S consoles! The Xbox Game Pass title has long been a favourite of the genre, but thanks to an update, it’s now correctly optimised for current-gen hardware.

Despite being available on both Xbox One and PS4, Insurgency: Sandstorm has long been a game best experienced on current-gen consoles.

However, until the latest update, the game was never fully optimised for Xbox Series X/S hardware. Insurgency: Sandstorm has already been loved a lot. From excellent tactical combat to detailed customisation, the game has much to offer. But the latest update finally gives the title the visual boost it deserves. Through frequent updates, Insurgency: Sandstorm has maintained a dedicated player base since its release.

The latest update upgrades Insurgency: Sandstorm to a full Xbox Series X/S optimised title. The patch raises the resolution to 4K/60FPS on Series X consoles and 1080p/60FPS on the lower-powered Series S model. The game also takes advantage of faster load times thanks to the SSDs found in the Xbox Series X/S consoles. The cross-gen game will also be included as part of the update.

  • 4K/60FPS on Series X
  • 1080p/60FPS on Series S
  • Faster load times
  • Improved textures
  • Cross-gen support


For those who are jumping into the game for the first time, you will probably need some pro tips to get started with Insurgency: Sandstorm. As the game has maintained a dedicated following over the years, most players have understandably mastered the online shooter game quite well. That said, the latest update will surely attract many new players who want to finally see what all the fuss is about.

Due to its calculated and tactical nature, Insurgency: Sandstorm offers something different from the more popular FPS games on Xbox Game Pass.

Despite flying somewhat under the radar in recent years. However, the game received critical acclaim for its realistic yet entertaining approach to the genre.

Xbox Game Pass has three confirmed games for February 2024. (Since Open Roads has been pushed to March.) There may be more to come. Arguably, the biggest upcoming release for the platform is Persona 3 Reload. It is an ambitious remake of the fan-favourite JRPG, more in the style of Persona 5. Not to mention that fans are already flocking to the service for 2024’s early surprise hit, Palworld.
