Natural Selection 2 Beta - all about this amazing game and the team TOG is fielding


What am this game do?
The basic premise of this amazing game is multiplayer Aliens vs Marine territory/resource/base control playing in either FPS view on the ground or a RTS commander handing out orders/support and building structures in top down view. It is still in beta at the moment but is very playable and patches are released regularly adding features, balance and fixes.

Support Indie gaming, GET INVOLVED!

As a bad ass Frontiersman...
This game offers the tension of the first Alien film (if your foolish enough to go wandering off on your own) and the furious action of the sequel without even being based in the same franchise.
Start of with your basic pulse rifle and pistol which upgrade as your commander can afford the resources, later purchase from your bases armoury the essential shotgun, grenade launcher or flamer. Move with your squad and follow the commanders orders as you secure areas of the space station with turrets and escort your robotic siege cannons down tight dangerous corridors in search of enemy hives.

As a deadly and fast Kharra...
As your standard 'Skulk' form you run up walls waiting in ambush to pick off stupid lone marines or launching assaults as a group to confuse and eliminate squads.
Evolve to the slightly overweight support 'Gorge' healing team mates and aiding your commander spread infestation and organic turrets across the space station.
Save enough resources to evolve into a spike shooting, poison smoke dropping flying 'Lerk'.
The evolution your really after is the daunting 'Fade', who can teleport about and slice marines new fecal release valves in their armour with his (or her) massive claws.
