Well, if you havent played NS1 you wont prolly get it.

So for all who dont know this. Natural Selection was a half-life mod based on FPS/RTS concept mixed with closecombat(aliens) vs shooting/far distance combat (marines). It's like AvP but way better. The gameplay physics were very sophisticated creating challenging and advancing experience.

If you happen to know classic Battlefield series then you get why this game is the shit!

i really enjoyed the first one...

have they said anything about new features / weapons etc?

certainly if they can recapture the original fun with the beautiful graphics shown in the video this will be worth checking out. free to DL if you have a source game, ya?

(i dunno if i'd quit spring for it. but specialists 2? hellz ya)

Well haven't follow up all the progress and features, but I think that the original concept and features were near perfect that im totally happy with them.
Ofc there seems to be some cool extra features like these:

And this is ofc cool:

And no, It's not free modification anymore. It is completely individual game with its own engine... :/

Im not sure dynamic infestation will be kept, also I haven't seen commander interface yet..

My guess is, game could still be 2 years far..

NS1 was amazing game, I loved its team play and commanding.

Huh... that's funny, I thought I saw an ad on Steam to pre-order NS2 along with one other "source-mod-gone-commercial" for a low combined price, but now I can't find NS2 in the game list, let alone any reference to a package deal.

Maybe it was on Impulse? :?

It has been stated that dynamic infestation will be kept. It was going to be scrapped, but they were able to commit to extra development time due to the success of the preorder program.

lol, yes that was funny. At the end he sees the skulk coming from stairs and shoots to the roof... It seems like he got scared there or something.

So with preorder thing they are able to have additional funds for further development. Thats kinda nice indeed, but in the other hand also means that the game release will be pending even more...

I wouldn't put my money on any pre-releases I think. It's always uncertain if I like the game or more over, will have time to play it... What if I die and im unable to play the game, will my relatives have the money back?

I know it's not a source mod anymore, what does that have to do with the ad being on steam? Or the game no longer being listed on steam for pre-order?

I think neither game listed for preorder on steam are HL2 mods. It's just a package the indie developers put together.
