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 a shooter/FPS gameplay with a strategy (RTS) game.

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 burst into rooms.

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.

Use a flamethrower to clear the spreading alien infestation. Aliens destroy power nodes to 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.

The Gorge has been a fan favorite since the release of the original Natural Selection mod for Half-Life. Requests over the years begged for toys and plush animals but there just wasn’t enough time and logistics for the team at Unknown Worlds to take on the responsibility. Working closely with UWE and community artist Rantology, our team developed concepts and then worked with manufacturer in China to bring the Gorge Plushie to life.
