Natural Selection 2 "Gorgeous" Update This Week

The Natural Selection 2 website announces Friday will see the release of build 240 of Natural Selection 2, an update for the action/strategy sequel that developer Unknown Worlds planned to release already, before deciding to do some additional polishing. The new version is unofficially titled "Gorgeous," as it includes graphics enhancements, but it also includes new content, which they proudly point out is neither an expansion nor DLC, but in their view, the "norm," saying: "These days, it is rare for PC games to receive ‘expansion’ style content updates for free. ‘Season Passes,’ ‘Map-Packs,’ and ‘DLC’ are the norm. We’re proud that Gorgeous is breaking the norm, and hope you’ll help us tell the world about it when it goes live!" Thanks IncGamers.

I would buy this game if there were a single player component. Even just skirmish bot matches vs. the AI.

I doubt it'd be possible to make a decent Skulk/Lerk/Fade AI. (making a decent fade AI for the 3.0 or even 1.04 fade would be even more difficult).
Natural Selection was always about other people.

And of course.. 128 players. And a 1:2 balance for Marines:Aliens ie. Aliens get twice as many players as marines. That way, you could build balance around that. And make huge swarms possible.... ;p

If you have such asymmetrical gameplay it is difficult to balance the game. Natural Selection was balanced for 6vs6 and basically everything beyond 8vs8 was a mess.
If you want something akin Battlefield 3 you would need to redesign large aspects of the game and the classes.
