Natural Selection 2 uses Steamworks.[1] Steamworks provides services including Steam friends, server browser, matchmaking, cheat protection and automatic updates but requires the use of the Steam application.

Given that Steamworks is OS-dependent, post-release porting to other platforms will mean replacing Steamworks with a new system.[2] However, Valve is making plans to port Steam to other platforms which would likely help this.

The first release on steam was in May 2010[3], But this was not the first pre-alpha-release.
