Half-Life 2: Episode One is the first of a trilogy of episodes for the 2004 first-person shooter game, Half-Life 2.[1] The episode takes place immediately after the end of Half-Life 2, in and around the war-torn setting of City 17. Players are forced to deal with the effects of their actions during the main game. The episode is a stand-alone game; while a continuation of Half-Life 2, it does not require the original game to be installed or registered to a user's Steam account to play. It takes advantage of several major upgrades to the Source engine since the release of Half-Life 2, primarily its high dynamic range rendering capabilities and the upgraded facial animation system.


Went instore today and it was £4.99!!! Presumably because Episode 2 is nearly upon us. Brilliant game if you don't have it in your collection, especially for this price.

If you buy the orange box which has TF2, Episode 2 + HL2 and episode one.... and you already have HL2 and episode 1, you can "donate" these games to friends on steam for free.

So do check with your mates who are ordering the orange box if they already have HL2 and episode one - because they could just give you this game for free.

As a HL2 owner I am quite pissed they're doing this.. i just want TF2... but in this case I may be saving someone a fiver. Good price though if you have no friends with the orange box.

I'm just not buying until they release them separately. They must think we're all stupid, and I'm not buying into stupidity!

Anyway, for a fiver, this is a good deal.

yeah they announced 9th october as the day you can order seperately.

It would appear thats when TF2 comes out of beta. Orange box holders get to participate in the beta it seems (from Monday).

You can buy them seperately form steam, rather than just buy the orange box.

if you don't mind waiting until Oct 9th you're right.

Hi All,

With all this talk of HL2 is it worth me buying the original HL2 for the xbox to play on my 360 as I saw it for £8 in Curry's. Or hold out for when 360 version is released. Does anyone have an exact date for this?

Cheers,

J
