Answering the question no one dared ask, independent developer Unknown Worlds has revealed exactly how the Gorge--"the main builder/healer class" of the Kharaa in Natural Selection 2's asymmetrical multiplayer mode--and its stubby legs handle stairs.

Keep your eyes open--if you're paying attention near the end, you may catch a shadow hinting at the things to come. And yes, though the video was released 2010 on April Fools' Day one of the developers stopped by to tell us that move is in the game.

The multiplayer-centric game will arrive "when it's ready," according to the developer. Those that pre-order to help fund it will soon be able to download an engine test.

      Not so much a beta, but an engine test is coming out on the the 9th, finally allowing level designers to test their maps in-game:

        But without an understanding of the gameplay mechanics will the designers be able to effectively ... design?

          no, which makes it a little frustrating. but you can kind of map things out a bit which is fun.
