    Pretty cool that the game only requires 5mb of hard drive space when running the recommended specs.

    Congratulations UWE! You've done an awesome job!

    This is an exciting day for everyone. Seeing it listed on Steam is just surreal, and yeah, awesome.
    It's been amazing to feel so connected to the development of this game.

    Looking forward to a bright future for NS2 and UWE. See you in the servers!

    Although it is extremely nice of them, didn't it cost $35 to preorder on the site? You basically got $10 off on the second game

    Still, awesome :)

    I know that buy buying on steam you don't get the beta, but on the webpage it's $10 more and it still says instant beta access? So if we buy on the webpage do we still get it?

    You do not get in to the beta from buying it at the web site. Beta is closed until release.

    The pre-order on the web site will most likely change within hours or so.

    I'd like to be able to get the upgrade to Deluxe Edition as a CD key rather than an automatic upgrade. Can any Devs comment on whether or not this is possible?

    MASSIVE thanks to the Unknown Worlds team, I only per-ordered yesterday so I could get access to beta, wake up this morning to find I get free copy and an upgrade! I am absolutely blown away! Cheers guys, best of luck in the lead up to release.

    <!--coloro:#FF8C00--><span style="color:#FF8C00"><!--/coloro-->The webpage is out of date, you can't buy it from there anymore. It was an oversight and will be updated soon.

    You can only buy the game through Steam now and will not get instant Beta access, this is reserved for the pre-Steam preorders. You will get access when the game goes live on Steam.

    To answer other questions.

    <ul><li>No the Black armor will not be available for the "Deluxe edition", it was a one time only DLC for the now N/A Special Edition</li><li>All the people who preordered before the Steam release (SE And normal) will get

    The "Deluxe edition"
    <ul><li>NS2 Official Soundtrack (almost 1 hour of music)</li><li>Digital Art Book (40 pages)</li><li>Exclusive wallpapers and avatars</li><li>Exclusive new in-game marine armor</li><li>From twitter @NS2 "Pre-ordering on Steam does not give you beta access - beta access is closed"</li></ul>

    And on top of that they will get

    <ul><li>A free upgrade to the Deluxe Edition detailed above</li><li>A free copy of NS2 Standard Edition to give to a friend or stroke lovingly</li><li>Continued private beta access right up to launch day in October</li></ul></li></ul>

    Congrats. Thank you for making an awesome game
    We are going to have so many new players it will be awesome
    I am really looking forward to the art book.
  • ZurikiZuriki Join Date: 2010-11-20 Member: 75105Members
    So, um, I have this extra SE key that's unredeemed (pre-Steam key), if it's redeemed now, would that person still have beta access + a deluxe upgrade?

    Since 2003, I've been such a close fan to you folks at UWE. From countless nights of me staying up late, meeting people through this game which is exactly your motif, I couldn't ask for anything better. I've followed so closely to the development of NS2, that I feel like I'm part of your family. Starting from that first instance of the procedural infestation, to the audio blogs, the first video blogs showing off the lighting, the ARC(formally known as the MASC) etc, the screenshot reveals with the trailer, and that treacherous 2009 Fall reveal date ( I have always forgiven you <3), to the engine test/alpha/beta, NS2HD joining UWE, all the publicity that this game is getting now, and Max hugging paper mache gorges, I can't say that I have been on a better journey.

    Charlie, Max, Cory, Brian(s), Dushan, Hugh.

    You guys know how to deliver. The way you have shaped us as a community is just incredible. You have proved so many people wrong by setting a release date, by having the game on Steam offcially to purchase, and continuing to make so much effort to keep doing what it is that you and all of us love, which is developing an incredible game.

    I am looking forward to October like most of us here are. It is so generous to be giving all of us who pre-ordered a free copy of the game to give to our friends. I would have never expected that. I'm looking forward to seeing the art book, listening to the soundtrack, and of course playing the hell out of your game at v 1.0, and of course future builds to come.

    I would like to also thank the rest of the people who have worked on NS2. Some that come to mind, Simon, Marc, Matt, and all of those who I am missing, huge thank you! Your efforts in shaping this game to what it is now is generous and I'm sure everyone can agree with that.

    I will always continue my love and appreciation for what is Natural Selection and Natural Selection 2, for UWE, and for all of those who feel the same way about this game.

    Lets drink to NS and NS2!
