Natural Selection 2 free weekend starts today

Hey, you! Have you played Natural Selection 2 yet? If you fancy giving the FPS-RTS a go, today's your lucky day, as it'll be free for all and sundry to try and play on Steam from this morning until Sunday. To put a cherry on top, developer Unknown Worlds is cutting the price by 50% for the weekend too, bringing it down to $12.50.

From 10 a.m. PT today, everyone will be able to download NS2 through Steam and play until 1pm PDT on Sunday. The 50 percent discount will run all the way through to 10 a.m. PT on Monday.

Unknown Worlds released NS2's biggest update ever at the end of February, so if you heard about the game during its long pre-order beta period or at launch, hey, it's a bit different now.

Here's an exciting new trailer to celebrate the event:
