Natural Selection 2

Natural Selection 2 is an immersive, online FPS RTS that pits aliens against humans in a strategic and action-packed struggle for survival.

Two Unique Sides

Whether you play as one of the elite marine Frontiersmen or the vicious alien Kharaa, you must use unique strategies and your abilities to win. Marines form persistent squads to find and destroy alien hives. Aliens can choose a wall-running Skulk, pudgy Gorge, flying Lerk, murderous Fade or gigantic Onos that can smash through doors.

Real-time Strategy

Commanders play from overhead to lead their team to victory. Build structures anywhere, collect resources and research upgrades. Marines buy weapons at an Armory or build sentry turrets and siege cannons to assault the enemy. Aliens build upgrade chambers, evolve special abilities and plant traps.

Dynamic Environments

Spreading alien infestation deforms hallways and causes space station power failure, turning off lights and shutting down marine powered structures. Use a flamethrower to clear infestation or weld a bulkhead shut for a last defense. Every game is different.

Unlimited Variations

WYSIWYG graphical tools and powerful scripting allow you to create new weapons, scenarios or entirely new games. You'll get all our tools and Lua source code we're using to build NS2. Ongoing automatic updates keep the game fresh by adding new maps, weapons and abilities.

The pre-alpha engine test came out two days ago for the new game and I thought I would see if there was any interest for it on the Hak5 forums. Originally, the first Natural Selection was just a Counterstrike 1.5 mod that was created many years ago. Since then, it has grown to be one of the biggest Counterstrike mods out there (pre-Source that is) and just recently, the studio behind it, Unknown Worlds started development on a stand-alone sequel to the original game. The sequel will have its own unique engine and will be based off of the mechanics from the original game.

If there are any NS fans out there, hit me up and I'll send you my Steam ID.

I've been waiting for NS2 for years...and years...and years...

Glad to see they finally put something out on the table. Too bad the majority of the original development team isn't there. :(
