Post news RSS NS2 coming to Steam!

We have confirmed with Valve that pre-orders will transfer properly to Steam! As you know, we have been funded largely by preorders although many of you have been patiently waiting to hear if pre-orders would let you download and play the game on Steam later. The answer is YES!

Posted by on

Pre-ordering now gives immediate access to NS2 mapping tools and artwork as well as early access to the alpha or beta when ready. We are now testing our engine with a small number of players and will expand that to everyone that has pre-ordered the Special Edition shortly.

Really nice... even though I would not mind pre-ordering this. I think I will wait for it to show up on steam first. I just really don't like using paypal or any service like it.

I must be one of those fortunate individuals who have never had any difficulties with it whatsoever.

Awesome, though I am guessing you just use your pre-order code to unlock the beta or alpha on steam and the game itself. Or will we have to confirm our steam names and such?

... I hope it ain't as bloody overpowered as the first one... I still hate NS 'cause of random bugs that weren't removed till the last versions... never got back into it.
