Grab Natural Selection 2 on Steam, Get the Deluxe Edition Free
The Steam page for NS2 features two different versions: Standard and Deluxe. The Deluxe version throws in the game’s official soundtrack, exclusive in-game armor for the Marine team, a 40-page artbook for the game and some wallpapers and avatars. Normally, it’ll run you $35 — an extra $10 over the Standard edition price.
Unless, that is, you pre-order the game ahead of its release. Then you get to pay the Standard edition price of $25 and get the Deluxe edition content. The only downside of pre-ordering on Steam is that you don’t get access to the still-running NS2 beta, which is now closed to new players but which you could have accessed with a pre-order on the game’s official website.
Unknown Worlds is also going one better and handing out some 45,000 free copies of Natural Selection 2 to players who already pre-ordered the title from its website. All those players are getting a spare copy to give away to friends, so if you were cool enough to support the game at some point in the past, good news! It pays off starting next month.
Previous pre-order customers who already had access to the beta still get it, also. Lucky them.
We know that Natural Selection 2 is coming in October, but Unknown Worlds hasn’t quite narrowed down an official day just yet. The developer says something more exact is on its way. Meantime, hit this link to pre-order the game on Steam.
