    Trailer

    Natural Selection 2 is an immersive, multiplayer shooter that pits aliens against humans in a strategic and action-packed struggle for survival. It seamlessly combines a shooter/FPS gameplay with a strategy (RTS) game.

    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.

    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.


    There is an NS2 OCAU group:

    Group Name: OCAU Natural Selection 2
    Abbreviation: OCAU NS2

    Wow, didn't know it was going to be a stand-alone title. Many hours enjoyed with NS1 on dialup. Was always playing on the OzForces servers, quite a good fun community too. Will be supporting these guys definitely.

    EDIT: Looks like you need PayPal to pre-order.

    If they get the game play half as good as the first one it will be a hit.

    I'll be pre-ordering pretty soon.

    Pre-order people! Line Charlie's pockets, not Gabes! Charlie and the team certainly deserve it. I expect to see you all in your lovely black armor in the Alpha :p

    bout f*cking time for shit sake.

    edit : i want to pre-order, but i rekon its gonna be another 20 years before its actually released :(

    edit again : couldn't resist, pre-orded special edition. NS1 is still my all time favorite number 1 half-life mod. anyone got pics of the black armor ?

    and, i also think that people who are in the constellation program for NS1 ( IE : Me ) should have got the special edition for no extra cost, bastards!

    Is this going to be a PC only title?
    Also, Hell Yeah.
    NS was awesome, nothing has been like it so far. I remember playing a skulk, a stealthed skulk clung to the roof in a hallway. As a lone marine came through I started using my taunt, which makes an alien-like noise. So funny playing mind games and watching his paranoid reactions.

    I'll wait for the Steam preorder, especially because that says to assume that preorder isn't for the Steam version. Good news though.
