Natural Selection 2 Early

The countdown timer on the Natural Selection 2 Website is now set to expire in just about 24 hours, as Unknown Worlds announces the action/strategy sequel will be released at 8:00 pm EDT (5:00 pm PDT) tomorrow, instead of at the stroke of midnight Halloween, as was previously planned:

I wanted to let you know that Natural Selection 2 will be releasing a bit early! It should go live at 5pm PST tomorrow, instead of our original plan of 12:01am PST on Halloween (7 hours early). This means our UK brethren will be able to play at the stroke of Halloween, for them.

I pre-ordered this.

Really hoping it's a lot like Quake2's "Gloom" mod.

It's better. Gloom was really cool though Tremulous is another in the same league, and it's not too shabby either.

The game is excellent. The game is fun. The games developers are very up front and open/active with the community.

Unfortunately, the gameplay is very niche because its not 100% of any one thing, and relies heavily on teamplay, following another players orders (isnt this like an anti-internet thing?), and learning more than just "Pull trigger to kill enemy" like in mentally neutered games like Call of Duty.

On the plus side, because of it being niche, you can expect a tight, dedicated, small community of players.

I'm pretty sure the dev team isn't going to put combat mode in again. The games totally open so I remember them saying that a modder can make the mode if they want, but they're going to focus on the core game. Here's hoping for another 10 years for Unknown Worlds.

Ant - no, its a paid for game. I'm gonna wait a while and see how the numbers pan out and the gamebase works out first.

edit:

Actually, I looked through the forums for the first time in 6 months and it seems that the main reason for me not wanting this game has been modded (combat mode). so ive preordered it for 18.99

The game is excellent, it has made huge leaps and bounds since the early stages last year and the year before. (I bought my copy a long long time ago).

I bought my copy for 35 during a Christmas special, where it was Buy 1 Get 1 Free. Gave the copy to my buddy. Recently Steam gave me a copy to gift, and my buddy who didn't even pay for the game. So all in all I got 4 Copies out of 35 bucks. I cannot complain.

It's fun, there haven't been many people on to play with, a few full servers a night, but that was mainly due to the fact only people who bought it ages ago got Beta/Early access, so I can't wait for the numbers of people playing to expand with the official release.

Nope, but those of us who preordered early got a free copy to give away on Steam. I already gave away mine, sorry.. but someone else here, or on Steam, might give you their gift copy..

I agree...an original NS player here and I think this new version is a hit!

I love that they replaced the Heavy Armor with a Mech.....that has 2 chain guns!!

These guys were gonna to get my money either way though.....I played the shit out of NS1 and I figure I owe them!

I was afraid they were going to fuck this game up as sometimes happens....but they did a great job on NS2!
