Anyone played the first one? It's probably best described as Counterstrike merged with Battlefield. Hardcore in the sense that you die quickly, and there aren't any enemy 'markers' (you determine friend from foe by the way they look) but nothing like Arma etc. I've been following the development of 'Sandstorm' - essentially Insurgency 2, for a while and things are going fairly positively, which is good news with the release date coming up on the 12th of December. It was this or Battlefield V - and I honestly don't think BFV offers anything compelling or new for me, so likely this.
