If you're a pre-order customer for Natural Selection 2, you might be interested to note that the team have released
an "engine test", offering a first glimpse at this anticipated shooter:
Today is a big milestone for Unknown Worlds: we've just released the NS2 "Engine Test" to everyone that has pre-ordered the game!
This is the first version of the game and game engine where you can run around on a couple small maps and fire the rifle at animated dummy targets. It isn't supposed to represent gameplay for NS2 (or really, any gameplay at all!) but serves to help us test our technology to make sure we get it running smoothly on a wide variety of computers.
If you're a pre-order customer you can download the engine test locally from AusGamers
now to check it out.
