Natural Selection 2 Gorgeous update hits February 28th, includes “big new guns and abilities” alongside various fixesJoannes Truyens February 26, 2013 - 7:28 pm
Unknown Worlds Entertainment have issued a release date for Natural Selection 2′s Gorgeous update. You’ll be able to enjoy new weapons and abilities on February 28th.
Last week, Unknown Worlds Entertainment expressed concerns that the impending release of their update to Natural Selection 2 would be misconstrued as an effort to milk the failure of Aliens: Colonial Marines. Nothing could be further from the truth, as the Gorgeous update has been in the works for a while and the poor performance of A:CM saddens the team, if anything.
So there should be only celebration surrounding the news that the new update will launch in two days’ time, on February 28th. “Alongside the headline grabbing ‘big new guns and abilities,’ Gorgeous contains countless subtle improvements and fixes. The Spark Engine has a couple of new graphical tricks up its sleeve to make the game look better, and is running ever faster as it is tuned for more performance. Existing abilities and weapons have been tweaked for more fun and subtle balance changes made,” says the official announcement.
“Gorgeous is free, and will be automatically delivered by Steam as Build 240. If you own NS2, you won’t have to do anything to get it. It includes Railguns, Gorge Tunnels, Descent, and quite a few fun surprises. Alongside the 13 previous ‘maintenance’ builds, Gorgeous is what the entire UWE team has been working on for the past two months.”
Last September, UWE mentioned that they would be releasing free post-launch updates for NS2, a claim they are now backing up and which they are understandably proud of. “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.”
Excuse me, I think I have something in both my eyes. OH FUCK IT’S A SKULK!
