imageReinforced Expansion Released! - Natural Selection 2

In February, NS2 was Gorgeous. Now, it is Reinforced. The culmination of nearly six months of development, Reinforced takes Natural Selection 2 to new height. Here is the launch trailer: Female Marines. Cluster Grenades. Biodome. Bone shield. Webs. Dual Railguns. Linux Support. Single Player Interactive Tutorial, Commander Tutorial, Special/Deluxe/Standard first person view models – Those are just some of the pieces of content released today. Look further back, and the updates have flowed . Released incrementally to everyone that owned NS2 before the release of Reinforced, twenty-four individual updates have dramatically increased performance, improved map layouts, completely revamped NS2 balance mechanics, and more. Together, these twenty four updates make Reinforced a monstor that everyone at Unknown Worlds is …

    UWE are working as fast as they can on issues.

    If NS2 fails, follow my Nuke From Orbit Guide.

    Aliens not ragdolling: I killed a fade which was crouching and it didn't ragdoll. The model didn't disintegrate for a while either. Saw the same thing happen to an onos which was killed using bone shield.

    Textures load very slowly in game. It takes about a minute before super low res textures go away.

    The thrown grenade model bugged out when it hit transparent flooring in biodome.

    I have faith they will fix the performance issues, and the assault armor simply looks BOSS. Count me $75 lighter!!

    You probably need a disclaimer when you advertise 'we'll make any game you want for a week - $75,000'

    Yep 75 bucks going straight down the pockets of my favorite dev team ain't a problem since they've been working their butts off surely since release. (and prior to release not to forget)

    EDIT: By the way we won't be able to redeem the key given after the donation until the 3rd of september correct?

    EDIT: Sorry my mistake figured it all out.

    Assault armor's cool and all but I think my black armor needs an elite decal....

    For the 333 you should let them submit a decal of their creation....

    Although I Currently cannot play the game since the update, I have my faith it will be sorted before long. Also UWE has my loyalty and has done for years. So although I can not afford £220 ($333) or more. the $75 is only £50 which I can easily afford. So shut up and take it

    I really like the Reinforcement Program. I think it would be better if there were more tiers - the jump from $75 to $333 is kind of big, and the jump from $333 to $1,500,000,000 or whatever is huge. But I don't know a lot about the economics of Kickstarter-esque stuff so I might be totally wrong.

    I'd buy into Reinforcement right now but I kind of don't want one of those badges showing that I'm spending more money than I should spend on a video game. It would be nice to buy it incognito.

    Wulf, just buy the Game Director Badge, and you can MAKE them put the bindable mousewheel in it!

    My badge isn't showing up yet, but I have bought the Shadow edition.

    Honestly, I can barely play the game on my laptop. It is about 7 years old, and I get around 40 fps alone at marine start on Veil.

    That is with my settings on absolute minimum!

    I have been following UWE since NS1, and a lot of my enjoyment comes from supporting such a great community and company.

    It is an exciting thing to be part of, and good luck for the future.

    I would do something much worse than implementing the sinister mwheel if I dropped that kind of cash

    Awesome stuff!

    I like how you find a way other than micro/f2p. Awesome!

    I'm totally going to buy a shadow badge!

    where can I donate for the "please put someone who knows how to play multiplayer FPS games in charge of NS2" badge?

    I might have further supported development of NS2, but then there was the whole "you will get used to the new alien vision because it will make you will appreciate our artwork" thing
