Update 266 Live!

2014年6月5日



Natural Selection 2 Build 266 is now live on Steam! Today’s release is the culmination of weeks of hard work by the new NS2 CDT – Community Development Team. A patch that has been developed entirely by the NS2 community – we are very proud and humbled to release it to you all. While it might be short in scope and stature, we hope you’ll find that your experience is now a little more refined.

This patch was created by the community, for the community and with Unknown World’s blessing. They have taken a gamble on us, but our shared passion for the Natural Selection franchise is what got us here today. Things like bug fixes and popular features have gone into this patch, but we have many more plans for the future!

You can also join us LIVE on http://twitch.tv/naturalselection2 on Saturday, June 7th at 12PDT, 3EDT or 21CEST for another round of CLOGCAST Q&A. We would love to hear what you think of 266 and will also talk about potential things to come in 267.

Kodiak Update Released!

2014年5月1日



Today, a new map: Kodiak, created by community mapper and modder Loki, was released officially as part of Natural Selection 2! This day is the culmination of months of hard work by Loki to create a map that stands proudly alongside the previous eight official maps.

<iframe width="600" height="338" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/SbmH7mThwCU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Kodiak is now available for everyone to play, and will automatically download from Steam when you next update Natural Selection 2 via the Steam client. All official servers will be running Kodiak only for the next few days.



Lush vegetation, free flowing rivers, and vistas of an asteroid field characterise Kodiak. Three enormous Biospheres run down the centre, forming the path for a river and dense vegetation. These areas create gameplay the likes of which Natural Selection 2 has never seen, with aliens and marines alike playing hide and seek among the foliage.



There is much more to this story than just a new map. Today, the Kodiak Pack was released on Steam! The Kodiak Pack includes new camouflage armour for Frontiersmen, Exosuits, and Skulks, and a new Kodiak Shoulder Pad. Naturally, when fighting in the forest, you will want to blend in, and you can also wear these new armours on any map!

<iframe src="http://store.steampowered.com/widget/296360/42746/" frameborder="0" width="600" height="190"></iframe>

Kodiak was created by a community mapper: Loki, and for every copy of the Kodiak Pack sold on Steam, Loki will get 50% of the earnings. This means that every time someone buys the Kodiak Pack, they are not just getting sweet new NS2 gear and supporting Unknown Worlds, they are also directly supporting the Natural Selection 2 modding community.



All of the toys included in the Kodiak Pack can be accessed via a new in-game customisation system, accessed through the main menu while in a server. Special Edition, Deluxe Edition, Reinforcement Program, World Championship, and of course Kodiak armour, lifeforms, and badges may be accessed in this menu, and previewed live.



This new customisation system is a hint at what is going on under the hood in the Kodiak Update: Lots. Loki was not the only community member to work on this update, countless others have been working directly on Kodiak to take it beyond the map, and into the core game.



Rantology took charge of the art direction of Kodiak, designing and creating the new items available in the Kodiak Pack, the customisation sytem, and other elements of the update.

SamusDroid was the technical leader of the project, coding in all the new features and fixes. SamusDroid has spent untold hours on engineering the Kodiak Update, and the care and attention he has shown towards Natural Selection 2 and the needs of its players is truly wonderful.

The Unknown Worlds playtest group, now number over sixty dedicated individuals, pulled out all the stops to test, test, test and test the Kodiak Update for hours on end. They also served as Academy Award winning actors in the Kodiak Trailer!

This is a very exciting Natural Selection 2 update. This game is now over one and a half years old on Steam, and by any reasonable standard, that is a long time to go while still receiving active development attention. The Kodiak Update is not just fun, it is also a test: Could this new development method, combining the talents of Unknown Worlds and devoted Natural Selection 2 players, yield even more updates in future? See the full changelog below:

ゲームについて

Natural Selection 2 is an immersive, multiplayer shooter that pits aliens against humans in a strategic and action-packed struggle for survival. It seamlessly combines shooter and RTS/strategy gameplay.

Key Features:

  • Two Unique Sides:

    Whether you play as one of the elite marine Frontiersmen or the vicious alien Kharaa, you must use unique strategies and your abilities to win. Marines form persistent squads to find and destroy alien hives. Aliens can choose a wall-running Skulk, pudgy Gorge, flying Lerk, murderous Fade or gigantic Onos that can smash through doors.
  • Real-time Strategy:

    Commanders play from overhead to lead their team to victory. Build structures anywhere, collect resources and research upgrades. Marines buy weapons at an Armory or build sentry turrets and siege cannons to assault the enemy. Aliens build upgrade chambers, evolve special abilities and plant traps.
  • Dynamic Environments:

    Use a flamethrower to clear the spreading alien infestation. Aliens destroy power nodes knock out the lights and power down marine structures. Random start locations mean you must scout your enemy and before committing to a build. Every game is different.
  • Unlimited Variations:

    WYSIWYG graphical tools and powerful scripting allow you to create new weapons, scenarios or entirely new games. You’ll get all our tools (level editor, cinematic tool and more) as well as the full Lua source code to Natural Selection 2. Version 1.0 is just the beginning – ongoing automatic updates keep the game fresh by adding new maps, weapons and abilities. Steam Workshop support and auto-downloading makes playing and distributing mods automatic - and gameplay always fresh.

良くも悪くもゲームとしては楽しいです
良い点
・FPSとRTS要素がある
・優秀なコマンダーだから有利だとか優秀な兵士が居るから有利なのではなく連携が重要(優秀なコマンダーや兵士が居るに越した事はありませんが)
・エイリアンと海兵では異なる戦術
・個人的な感想ですが火炎放射器が楽しいです.汚物は消毒!(攻撃に有用ではなくサポート向け武器なので使い処は考える)
・武器を買ったり進化したりするのにResource(資源)が必要なので常に強い武器、エイリアンが使えない
・必然的に資源が必要になるので籠ると負けます 常に攻め必要に応じて防衛する必要がある さあ同志達よ!資源地を奪いに行け!後退は許さん!Ураааааааа!!
・いい試合だと一時間以上のロングゲームになったり白熱したバトルがまれにある
・一人で無双できないので自然と連携を取るようになる
・極端に強すぎる兵器、エイリアンが居ない(海兵側はexo、エイリアン側にはonosが居ますが共に見方の連携なしではただのでかい的です)
・豚ちゃんkawaii!!onos怖い!

悪い点
・一方的なゲームになると楽しくなくなる
・初心者には少し辛い(分からないうちは見方についていった方が無難です)
・海兵側のジェットパックがやや強い気がする
・exoビーコン
・コマンダーが必須(コマンダーが居ないとゲームになりません)
・武器が少なく選択にバリエーションがあまりない
・ラジオチャットのようなものがあまり便利ではない(ほぼ独り言仕様)
・一部ユーザーのマナーとモラルの欠如(初心者を問答無用で無言kickなどetc...)
・ユーザーが少ない(外人達が集う時間帯でも1000人も行きません言わば過疎ゲーの部類)
・ゲームも熱くなればグラボも熱くなる(グラフィックの割にやたらと重いですこのゲーム)
・ロードなげえ⊂(⊂ 'ω')

総評
連携が好きな方なら是非やってもらいたいゲームですね きっと楽しいはずです
初心者時代がやっぱりなんだかんだで一番楽しいと思います
とっつきやすさから海兵に初心者が固まりがちですがエイリアンも楽しいです
一人で暴れたい!と言う方にはまるっきり向いてないです 兵士はただ一人のか弱い普通の兵士 エイリアンならただ一体のか弱いモンスター
どうでもいいけどStarCraftに世界観似てるよね エイリアンとかモロZerg
火炎放射器は私の愛武器、Fadeは絶対許さないよメモったからな三日後100倍返しだ!!

Natural Selection 2 is a very interessting game, that represents a good blend of FPS and RTS game play.. On top of that, the community is accepting of new players and offers a friendly hand to educate those who are new.(voicechat-tipps etc)

Due to the fact that Natural Selection 2 is a hybrid of FPS and RTS game play, it allows for very competitive play in that the deciding factor of victory and defeat involves the long term decisions of a commander and/or the quick reactions and overall skill of the individual combatants (whether shooting aliens, or stalking marines). Due to this style of game play, games can very well last over an hour and yet feel very "tight" throughout the entire match.

However, as of now, there is a lack of a ranked match system. The fact that the average game easily lasts over 20 minutes, and longer games tend to last for at least an hour, a very serious deciding factor of the winner is simply how many players leave and join the game. I understand that this is not really a game breaking problem, however due to the fact that players do not have much "loyalty" to their respective team, and the fact that the average match is rather lengthy, if a number of "pro" players join or leave the match during the middle of the game, it could drastically change the fate of the match instantly. I believe that having a sort of ranked match system, like that in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, will serve a very competitive game like Natural Selection 2 justice. Having ranked matches will also remove the occasional "newb stomping" matches, where there is a skill-based team stack.

The game features asymmetrical teams with very different game play styles. This provides for a different style of FPS game play, and not the traditional shooter vs shooter like in most FPS games. I believe that because of this asymmetry, it expands the average gamer's experiences about FPS games in general. However, in Natural Selection 2, because it is also an RTS hybrid, a player could choose from essentially four game play experiences within one match alone which highly increases the game's overall learning curve. These four game play "roles" are: Marine commander, Marine player, Alien commander, and Alien player. Each type of "role" presents new strategies and information upon which the player has to know, and ultimately, having a sense of all the 4 roles is the minimum requirement for being "decent" in the game. Overall, having asymmetrical teams can interest those who are tired of the same-old shooter vs shooter, and because Natural Selection 2 is an asymmetrical FPS/RTS hybrid, such game play increases the overall learning curve to become fully understanding of every aspect, tactics and counter-tactics within the game.

Do not let the lack of a ranked match system and rather difficult learning curve stop you from playing this game however. The lack of a ranked match system simply means that Natural Selection 2 is always going to be played on a "casual" game play setting, which many FPS games have. The difficult learning curve is also easily passed if one simply spends about a good 2 hours playing in a sandbox training server by themselves, learning all of the abilities, techniques, tech-trees, map-knowledge, weapons, and life forms to get that "full" understanding of the 4 game play "roles" I mentioned earlier. Furthermore, if you still need further clarification and help, the overall community in Natural Selection 2 servers are kind, vocal, and willing to help those who ask.

Soloplayers: 60-70% fun ( or less, if you play against a pro team)
With Clan/team: 70- 85% fun

Great game.
Awesome looks. Smooth and intuitive controls. 2 ways to play, 2 asymetrical sides and different roles within each side make the gameplay really diverse. Free content updates and constant improvement. Also modable.
Might take some patience though due to simetimes really rough pub matches. But what multiplayer game is not guilty of that?
Great game!

RTSとFPSのハイブリッドなFPS
海兵隊とエイリアンどちらかとなって戦えるのですが、エイリアンの性能がかなり特殊
他のゲームではなかなか味わえない戦いを楽しむことができて楽しいです
(具体例として、透明化して敵を待ち伏せやサイに変身して敵をツノでぶっ飛ばすなど)
また、建造物を作成したり味方のロボットを修復したり敵の建造物を破壊することでもチームに貢献できるため、腕に自信が無くても役に立つことは出来るかもしれないようなそんな気がするようなでもそうでもないようなアレです

今プレイヤーが増えてきていて、初心者が始めるにはちょうどいい環境が整っています
難易度は高いしシステムも難しいですが楽しいんで始めるなら今なんじゃないでしょうか
