I heard someone saying that the weird portal in the eclipse map (bottom left) is from some movie. Does anyone know the name of it.

    The original was made by @KungFuSquirrel and the eclipse hive did not have a "portal"

    So for that question you'd have to ask the NS2 map team, who made ns2_eclipse:

    Event Horizon, probably
    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to play Natural Selection 2. The gameplay is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of military strategy and advanced mathematics you won't even win a single game. Theres also the game's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into the game. The maps and artwork draw heavily from Riddley Scott's Alien franchise, for instance. The players understand this stuff, they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of the game, to realise that it's not just great, that it also says something about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Natural Selection 2 truly ARE idiots. of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in the Marines' existential catchphrase "how do I get to be so good", which itself is a cryptic reference to the high degree of intelligence required to play the game as intended. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion when spectating a game. What fools... how I pity them. And, yes, by the way, i DO have a Fade tatoo. And no, you cannot see it. it's for the ladies' eyes only, and even then they have to demonstrate that they are within 50 hive skill points of my own (preferable lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid.

    I'm not aware of the portals in Eclipse being based on any movie. I took a look through the old concepts and notes and I couldn't find a single reference to a movie. As far as I know, it's an original design.

    I don't think there's one for all of the versions. You'd probably need to do your own research for that.
    But these are the main dates that I know:
    • Natural Selection 1 - October 31st, 2002
    • Natural Selection 2 - October 31st, 2012
    • Natural Selection 3 - October 31st, 2022 ?

    Sorry that nobody has given you a serious answer yet. IIRC the eclipse map portal was inspired by The Emoji Movie.

    It resembles the doom3? tech mostly and is probably a prototype for the phase tech used by marines against those evil bacteria, refered to as aliens. Don't get me started about cloning...

    No way, man. "Evil bacteria" is from the DOOM movie, which is strictly non-canonical. "Aliens" is from the book.

    In the canonical series (and the loose canon DOOM 3), the "aliens" are DEMONS, from HELL. And you, the doomguy, must RIP and TEAR, until it is done.
