    I never played the original. The RTS/FPS hybrid sounds interesting though.

    www.viddler.com Natural Selection 2 With the advent of antibiotics, platinum credit cards and thermal underwear, the purist's notion of natural selection remains a long-forgotten, useless ideal -- at least until the aliens attack. Sequel to a 2002 Half-Life mod, Natural Selection 2 will act as a survival-of-the-fittest simulation for both sides: Players will inhabit the bodies of aliens and Marines to see which traits will be passed on to the following generations. We're guessing large teeth and precise trigger fingers will make the cut, but not necessarily on the same species.

    Natural Selection 2 is set to launch this summer, but those who pre-order will get early access via the beta on Steam.

    Natural Selection 2 trailer reveals giant mech suit, makes it fight alien rhino

    [​IMG] Natural Selection 2 has a variety of playable aliens, an entire armoury of human weaponry, turrets, squidgy alien hives and floating disembodied commanders able to boss troops about but, somehow, it doesn’t have mech suits. Yet. With much aplomb, the latest trailer tears the silver sheet off the hulking humanoid form of the Exosuit. It comes with two chain guns and air conditioning as standard, which is especially useful during those times in which you’re on fire. In times of calm you can pop the hood to stare smugly down at your poorly armoured squad mates. In short, it’s everything you’d probably want from a wearable war machine.
    Find out more on the Natural Selection 2 site, and catch the trailer right here.

    Natural Selection 2 makes it to Steam, set for October release [update]

    [​IMG] Natural Selection 2 (Exosuit




    Ten Halloweens ago, the absurdly popular Natural Selection mod transformed Half-Life into a multiplayer shooter with real-time strategy. Today, its long-developed sequel is finally up for pre-order on Steam, attached with a very convenient 'October 2012' release window. Yup, we'll eat our pumpkin hat if Natural Selection 2 isn't out by October 31. Until then, the game remains in beta with over 40,000 active players according to developer Unknown Worlds.

    Natural Selection 2 now offers a tactical team-based shooter in a proprietary engine, with one side the marines, the other the aliens. One member of each team plays the "Commander" role, overseeing the fight from above and influencing it through RTS features like defenses, buildings, and upgrades.

    Pre-orders on Steam are being rewarded with Natural Selection 2's deluxe version. That includes the official soundtrack, a digital art book, and some in-game armor amongst other goodies, all for $24.95. Sadly, there's been an oversight regarding a pumpkin hat.

    Update: Clarified release window and corrected engine information.

    Natural Selection 2: evolve or die in the standalone sequel to the hit Half-Life mod

    [​IMG] The original Natural Selection came from the same purple period of Half-Life modding that birthed Counter-Strike. It pitted two asymmetrical teams against each other: marines, armed with rifles and shotguns that could be swapped for flamethrowers and jetpacks, versus aliens, who could spew bile and hurl spines, before evolution turned them into hallway-filling elephant monsters spearing humans on giant horns.

    [​IMG]Natural Selection 2 review

    7:52pm December 05 2012
    It’s taken almost a decade for the Natural Selection 2 developers to bond an FPS to an RTS and make it work. The original mod was fun, but this sequel is a wonderful one-off, where asymmetrical teams fight on the ground while a commander prompts and preps from above. And although 90% of its audience will be buying it for the shooter, like the rug in The Big Lebowski it’s the RTS that ties it all together.

    [​IMG] The very cool tones of Blues News bring word that Natural Selection 2 developers Unknown Worlds have released their ‘Decoder’ IDE – their Integrated Development Environment, or Thing Wot They Used To Program The Game – for free, taking the exciting decision to make it open source as well. The team created Decoder in 2007 using the programming language Lua, and until now they’ve been licensing it out to other developers, using the money to fund the company. Now that NS2 is out, Unknown Worlds have decided to not only remove the licensing fee but to open its innards to the public, with the intention of making it “the best IDE out there!”

    Natural Selection 2 update will introduce female marines

    [​IMG] You would think that, of all times and all places, a future space war between aliens and humanity would be the last place you’d find people getting bashful about women serving in the military. I can’t imagine screechy pterodactyls care which gender they’re chewing on. If gooey bio-reptiles can get past these prejudices, can’t we all? *Cue inspirational music* So it’s good to see that Natural Selection 2 developer Unknown Worlds have announced the addition of a female marine, planned for an upcoming update to the multiplayer FPS strategy.

    Natural Selection 2 World Championship on the cards…if fans can raise $30,000

    [​IMG] Crowdfunding. Everybody’s at it these days, and I’ll tell you precisely who when the remainder of this post has successfully reached its whopping 68p target. UPDATE: thanks! Everybody’s crowdfunding, but not everybody is crowdfunding an international tournament to a particularly excellent RTS/shooter. Natural Selection 2 fans want $30,000 to make a World Championship happen. Developers Unknown Worlds have already blessed the enterprise, paying for a studio in Cologne and Twitch TV promotion – that just leaves the cost of getting everyone over there. $925 has been raised so far, so there’s still a fair way to go.

    Natural Selection 2 World Championship Tournament sees crowdfunding success

    at 13:53 on 12 November 2013
    [​IMG]Indie shooter Natural Selection 2 will get a world championship. The FPS/RTS hybrid's community-led project has raised the full $30,000 it said it needs to bring 24 players to Cologne, Germany and stage an eSports event to determine a winning team. An ambitious goal, to be sure, but the money is now there to make it happen, according to the fan effort's official crowdfunding site.
