Yesterday Unknown Worlds decided to begin rolling out their latest patch for their popular asymmetrical online FPS Natural Selection 2. The latest patch addresses many of the bigger issues players have had with the game from the maps to the gameplay. Along with fixing a lot of smaller bugs that have reared their ugly heads over the past few months.

The latest patch will update Natural Selection 2 to build 236 and aims to fix many of the issues that have became apparent in the game. Most notable fixes are:

  • Improving the hit detection on the skulks when wall climbing.
  • Decreasing the marine flashlights making it easier to see through your teammates beams in dark areas.
  • Fire rate bug fixed on systems with low FPS.
  • Docking map has been reworked to improve the game experience.

Natural Selection 2 is the follow-up standalone title from Unknown Worlds who previously created the hugely successful Natural Selection mod. Natural Selection 2 offers much improved graphics and even better gameplay over the original mod, along with a whole host of other content that fleshed the game out into a fully fledged title.

Natural Selection 2 proved an instant hit on Steam reaching the number one slot is the most popular game purchased on the distribution platform back in Halloween. Since the early boom in sales Natural Selection 2 has managed to maintain its place as one of the most popular games currently available on Steam and has a vibrant ever growing community.
