Expect Natural Selection 2 to Hit Late August, Early September Release
Natural Selection 2 is still in a semi-closed public beta, but the game will be available for realsies later this summer, according to Unknown Worlds Entertainment’s outreach manager, Hugh Jeremy.
Currently, Natural Selection 2 is only available as a pre-order for $30 on Steam, although the developer gives beta access to anyone who puts in an order for the game. Until now, Unknown Worlds has only put down a “Summer 2012″ release window for the game. Jeremy told us at E3 2012 that he wasn’t able to put too fine a date on the game’s release, but the company has at least narrowed things down to late August or early September.
Meantime, you can still check out Natural Selection 2 in its beta form right now, although expect it to be a work in progress. “If you play for 20 minutes, you’re going to find bugs,” Jeremy said. But content patches are happening frequently — every two weeks most of the time, and sometimes as often as weekly. The Unknown Worlds developers are actively working on the game and engaging the community at every step.
