Half-Life 2 : Its Official!

Just gleamed these from Planethalflife:

Quote:
Valve's Doug Lombardi sent along the following:

Half-Life 2 will be shown at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

So all these wacky rumors should be cleared up by May 14th.

UPDATE: Gamer.nl has publicly leaked two bits of information: the first is that the magazine embargo ends on April 28th, so magazines can publish their Half-Life 2 articles after this date. It's already been shown to certain members of the press.

They also leaked the big news we hinted at before: Half-Life 2 will be released this year.

It should also be noted that this is pretty much the first official mention of Half-Life 2's existence from Valve.
Quote:
More Half-Life 2 info continues to leak out, here's some of the highlights:

* Half-Life 2 is scheduled for a September 30th release.
* Yes, you're still Gordon Freeman, and yes, the story assumes you went to work for the G-Man.
* Half-Life 2 takes place in a European city called "City 17."
* Headcrabs will be back! Although some of the Xen aliens will be your friends?
* Barney is back. And so is Half-Life's original writer, Marc Laidlaw.
* While the new engine has all sorts of fancy features, it's still designed to work on lower-end machines. Apparently a 700mhz processor and a video card capable of running DX6 is enough, although a 2ghz with a GeForce4 is recommended.
* The girl in the promo art is named Alyx, a daughter of a scientist who factors into the story somehow. She's not playable.
* Scripted Sequences will be more interactive.
* Half-Life 3 is planned, so expect another cliffhanger ending.
Fuck the Matrix, this is going to make my decade.

I never really got into half-life too much hehe. But what I did play was great.

I came for the hatred.
I stayed for the ballbag.

Hooray. It's about time they made a new version. The game engine for the old one, although terribly outdated, still has mods being made for it. I hope development on the half life mods flips over to v2 when it comes out. Counter Strike on a more able engine would be more than droolerific.

I just hope they port CS to the HL2 engine.

Ah! Blasphemy! Blasphemy!

Matrix will make my year as a movie, and HL2 will make my year as the game.

I heard about this yesterday on X-Play. I cant wait.

Half life 2 = Half Life 1 with better graphics and higher requirements.What else can you add to a classic aliens attack earth lets kill aliens shooter ? Some new stuff but its boring,i hope it will have a great multiplayer since CS is getting boring and old too...

30th of September is the most widely quoted date, though PC Gamer in the UK puts it as November.

I hope they port Day of Defeat over to the new engine, but not that piece of crap that is Day of Defeat 1.0 (the most recent version).

dlink - the only part they've revealed is single player.

the only person who can ruin that for you with hacks and cheats, is yourself.

i've never used hacks/cheats, others have, and ruined the game for me. the only person who can ruin the game with hacks and cheats is the other guy.

So does Fileplanet, and I downloaded it and I CANNOT STOP WANTING THIS GAME. Someone poke the Valve developers and tell them they had better not it slip (unless they are making it really, really good )
