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.

Iv been playing this game a LOT lately and its a blast, only really big issue for the beta is the game isn’t optimized at all so expect super low fps on vary high end systems, and no sli support for the time being.

quad core i5 at 3.3ghz over clocked to 4.5ghz with a 560ti geforce graphics card (sli’d but doesn’t matter for this game) and 8 gigz of blazing fast ram and i get 40fps for about 5 minutes at the start of the game and then it degrades as time go’s on aound 20 to 10fps.

Its strange too cause even if you lower the resolution and turn down what little graphics options there are the performance doesn’t really get any better.

but anyways check out there developer tracker it kind of awesome and you get to see the changes as they happen. http://www.play4dead.com/ns2/
