Natural Selection 2 Crag Coming

The Natural Selection 2 Website introduces the Crag, the first of four alien structures the alien commander will be able to build in the upcoming action/strategy sequel. They offer a big description of the structure and its role in the game, offering concept art showing its cragginess. Word is the Crag will be added to the Natural Selection 2 alpha in the next patch update. Thanks joao.

the gorge can still build structures btw

but they are going for a starcraft 2 esports approach with the whole 2 commanders thing

not t mention the it will balanced now


I'm not thrilled at all with this 2 commander idea. I get what they're going for but it totally changes the gameplay! I won't pass judgment until I play it but it's not a great idea.

It's supposed to be a weaker race that is technologically advanced against a totally organic alien race.....while it's still essentially the same formula you will no longer have the "Hive Mind" gameplay. You'll have a commander that will be directing everything from above.

Sounds like the aliens will have an advantage over the marines....unless they're nerfing the aliens somehow. Jesus...I really hate when game makers fuck with an already proven formula like this!

I love Flayra and the crew and appreciate the efforts they made since the inception of this awesome game, which I played the living crap out of btw, but this is a huge difference, imho, from the original game.

Very skeptical.

The great thing about this game was that you could play a marine if you didn't want to put that much effort into the actual strategy of the gameplay...you could let the commander do it all and you just shoot aliens......but if you were more of an independent player that wanted to make the decisions of the where, what and how then you played aliens. Not to mention you weren't at the mercy of some dumbass commander waiting for upgrades, or needing a freaking shotgun/jetpack and he hands them to all the idiot players.

I'll reserve judgment....but it's not the same game at all. I can't believe I missed this alien commander thing!

They announced pretty early that Aliens get a commander. I wasnt thrilled about that either and still am pretty skeptical.
To already say that it will be balanced this time is just guessing.
