Proving Grounds is a TDM modification for Natural Selection 2. It focuses on First Person combat, without the RTS elements of the full game. Currently in alpha development, the mod will eventually feature multiple modes and full customisation of characters and models. This will be updated as more media becomes available.
This is a big release, quickly put together after our very successful playtest. Expect some big updates to the map pg_lunacy in the near future, for now we have big updates to the gameplay. This release is subtitled 'Movement'.
And here is the updated version of the mod!
