Unknown Worlds has unveiled details (thanks Glynd) and a date for their upcoming free update "Gorgeous" to recently launched RTS FPS Natural Selection 2. The new update is set for launch sometime today and will feature various new content including Railguns, Gorge Tunnels, Descent and "quite a few fun surprises."
Gorgeous is free, and will be automatically delivered by Steam as Build 240. If you own NS2, you won’t have to do anything to get it. It includes Railguns, Gorge Tunnels, Descent, and quite a few fun surprises. Alongside the 13 previous ‘maintenance’ builds, Gorgeous is what the entire UWE team has been working on for the past two months.
Alongside the headline grabbing ‘big new guns and abilities,’ Gorgeous contains countless subtle improvements and fixes. The Spark Engine has a couple of new graphical tricks up its sleeve to make the game look better, and is running ever faster as it is tuned for more performance. Existing abilities and weapons have been tweaked for more fun and subtle balance changes made.
Unknown Worlds has also released a blog post outlining just how the developers prepare for patching a game, which you can check out over here
