So, what is Natural Selection 2?
Natural Selection 2 is a competitive asymmetrical RTS/FPS game. Each team has a commander. The aliens are focused on different lifeforms and mostly use melee oriented attacks while the marines are focused on weaponry and tools to achieve success. The best way to understand the game is seeing it as an RTS game. At the start of each round a player takes up the role as commander. The only way to win is by destroying the other team’s commanding structure. The other players in the team, including you, will be his units. You will be the creature or marine that will see the chaos from up close in a first-person perspective. You are free to choose how you will assist the commander. You can either build his structures, attack the other team’s base or destroy any hostiles. The commander can help you with these tasks by giving you upgrades, new abilities or better weapons.
