You can find the recap (via GamersGate) below:

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a tactical team-based FPS based on deadly close-quarters combat and objective-driven multiplayer gameplay. A sequel to FPS Insurgency, an independent breakout, Sandstorm is reborn, improving, expanding and growing in every way. Experience the intensity of modern combat where skill is rewarded and teamwork wins the fight. Prepare for a hardcore portrayal of combat with deadly ballistics, light attack vehicles, destructive artillery, and fearless HDR audio back in the genre.

An intense atmosphere putting terror into modern combat
Move with speed and caution as you weave your way through the war-torn environments of a contemporary fictional conflict in the Middle East. Death comes quickly, ammunition must be managed with care, and the environment must be managed tactically at every step to victory.

Insurgency: refined and broadened
For the first time in an Insurgency game, customize your character to show off your veteran with various sets of clothing, uniforms, accessories, and character voices. Coordinate fire support with your squad, engage enemies with vehicle-mounted machine guns, and battle each other in small-scale, high-speed competitive matches. Wield new weapons and upgrades to thwart maneuvers, sidestep and outwit the enemy.

War in all its glory
Continuing Insurgency’s acclaim as the most atmospheric shooter, Sandstorm is built on Unreal 4 to bring its gritty close quarters combat into a whole new era of realism. Skill is rewarded and survival is paramount. Feel every bullet and fear every impact.
