Natural Selection 2 is a hybrid shooter/strategy game that pits two asymmetrical sides against each other. It is currently in beta testing, and you can join the beta by pre-ordering at www.naturalselection2.com.
On September 4, pre-orders will become available on the Steam Store. At this time, instant beta access for pre-order will end. Natural Selection 2 will release in the very near future, soon after Steam pre-orders become available.
Natural Selection 2 runs on our very own engine, called Spark. This trailer was created using the Spark Cinematic Editor. The SCE is a little bit like Source Filmmaker, though not as sophisticated. The SCE, and our other development tools, are included with the game.
These tools include map editor, script editor, animation tools, and more. Because the NS2 game code is open source, anyone can create mod content for NS2, or even entirely new games on Spark.
