Natural Selection 2 is the sequel to the popular Half-Life mod Natural Selection. It is built on our own engine and will be distributed through Valve's Steam platform.

Hello everyone! Earlier last month we revealed the new NS2 Fade and his new blink ability (see mayhem below). It was always the goal to have the Fade truly teleport properly, but the old Half-life engine never seemed up to the task, so he just moved really fast. Not any more! He can disappear and reappear behind marines, on top of structures and pretty much anywhere else his little black heart desires.

Yeah was made in-engine. They also ship the cinematic editor with the game so you can actually make them yourself. Very cool.

Gives new meaning to the phrase: Smoking can kill you!

Cool creature, I'm awaiting the release. I pre-ordered a year ago.

Holy stiff animations batman!

Nah it's not that bad but the animations could have used a bit more work.

Also, teleporting properly was easy on the HL Engine, many mods implemented it. ESF for example had it done well.

Who else noticed the bladerunner reference at the very beginning?

I just watched the HD vid... please tell me sprinting is NOT going to be in the final game.

NS2 can own without sprinting.

Cool trailer but is the marine chatter supposed to be almost inaudible?
