I will restate my question. Is this game going to be released via Steam only? I don't do Steam. I have had issues in the past with their software screwing up my PCs (three of them to be exact, the most recent last year when I purchased DOW2 and UT3 when they came out) and I am not using their service again. I want another avenue of getting the game. If it is Steam only, then I just won't get it. Not worth the hassle.

Probably best to ask that here...
Unknown Worlds Forums -> NS2 General Discussion

You could also discuss your Steam issues in the dedicated TOG Steam forum

10-April-10


Here we go... a playable Natural Selection 2 engine test alpha...

Natural Selection 2 News - NS2 Engine Test released!

Quote:
This is the first version of the game and game engine where you can run around on a couple small maps and fire the rifle at animated dummy targets. It isn't supposed to represent gameplay for NS2 (or really, any gameplay at all!) but serves to help us test our technology to make sure we get it running smoothly on a wide variety of computers.

If anyone here gives this a run I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to hear about it

Editor looks good, I am interested in it simply because of that and potential community content.

Preorders for the special edition are only available till the 26th so get in if your keen to play the Alpha and have the little 'day one benefits'. Also standard edition price goes up after that date if you dont care much for the Alpha but want to save some money on final release.

How many TOGers we got playing the Alpha?
