FPS-RTS Natural Selection 2's long gestation will end this summer, when Unknown Worlds' multiplayer evolve 'em up launches for PC, Mac and Linux. The announcement came alongside a huge patch updating its pre-order beta build with a few fine features from the original Half-Life mod that'd been missing until now--jetpacks and the alien Onos class.

The 'Gorilla' beta update also brings heaps of optimizations, balance tweaks, fixes, and more shiny new things. You can get instant beta access by pre-ordering Natural Selection 2 for $34.95, which activates on Steam.

Here's the jolly exciting 'Gorilla' trailer, for those who missed it last week:

      Last gameplay video looks neat. Hopefully they've got gameplay worked out. It was always a neat idea, but marred by very high learning curve and requirements of tight team play which rarely worked out in pubs. Oh, and also a huge rash of power-tripping server admins.
