Natural Selection 2 playable alpha set

The playable alpha of Natural Selection 2, a full-blown follow-up to the successful Half-Life mod, has been dated for Monday, July 26th, developer Unknown Worlds has announced.

Access will be available only to those who already have or will pre-order the game’s $40 Special Edition. Time’s running out though; the SE will be taken out of circulation after the 26th. The regular version’s price tag of $20 will be upped, too.

A handful of fresh screenshots from the shooter have been released as well, including one that shows off the all-black marine armor the SE’s packing. Find those below.
