Yah think everyone who knows about it is in shock that they are giving a premium game away for free. This is the same dev team of l4d and portal (and this is basically a revamped newest source engine version of their 2004 ut2k4 alien swarm mod before they were hired by valve).

I love how Valve will hire out of the mod community. This looks great.

Unless Valve suddenly changes their minds, free forever.

But I'm sure everyone is gonna wait till the big steam Dec sale to get this :rofl:

+1 to Valve. Free content is always a nice gift to the fans.

I guess this is suppose to be a way to fully test work they are doing on their engine. This seems like some crazy beta-test, but the result is a free, multiplayer game.

I'm totally in for this, and likely that moon base game NASA just put out for free to. (Too bad that game seems to be rooted more in science fiction given NASA's current state.)

Kinda surprised/disappointed it's not for Mac too, but restarting in Windows is a small price to pay. Thanks for the heads up!

No kidding!!!! I thought the whole purpose of episodic content was to get things out faster. They should have just made Halflife 3.

People still don't get that there are different teams in Valve. These people are clearly not responsible for HL2: Episode 3 and even if they were put onto that project, more people doesn't necessarily get a game done faster.

Yet another example of why Valve is one of the best, if not the best, gaming companies. All TF2 updates for free, free Alien swarm, free TF2 weekends, L4D mutations, crazy Steam sales, etc. etc.. I wish more companies were as good to gamers. *glares at EA*

actully valve at one point release a free portal to the public for a period of time and joking "yep its free! don't say we never gave you anything" haha and yea thanks for the heads up!

Nice!. Real nice. Have been waiting on this game for some time now. It's even more awesome now that it's free.
