Escape the confines of City 17 and strike a blow for the resistance!

As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. Now, in Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.

Episode Two is the second of a planned trilogy of games that extends the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life adventure. Unique weapons, vehicles, and new creatures, friends, and enemies all make an appearance.

About The Closure with 13 comments by SPY-maps on Dec 19th, 2014

I know, each time i try to not wait so long with a new updates and each time there are months between them. But, finally here is a new one, and its again a big one. There are 20 new screenshots for you to watch and even 3 new movies this time. One the 3 new levels, and one of Kleiner talking to Gordon and one from a rather large cutscene.

HL2 Ep3:

Please keep in mind as usual, that all footage is still WIP and doesn't reprecente the final mod.

The Releaste Date

I had made up my mind so hard, for so long. With the release date of this mod i would not make the same mistake as i made with all those previous ones. I would not talk about any release date up front, untill
the mod was really 100% finished. And although it was hard i kept that promise with myself, till last update 3,5 month ago. I was so sure i would be able to release the mod this fall, that i said so in a article
here, and in a movies credit text. And now i have to break this promise. You problaby already guessed it, no release this year. I had such big hopes, because after all, as a mapper/modder you make projects so people
can play them, and then you want to know if they liked it, and had fun.

I keep overloking how much it takes to complete a mod, in the sence of fixing and implementing the little things ones the mapping is done. There are so many few issues to look after, the last minute bug fixes, the new HUD, ss bumpmapping. All things that take more time as was planned, as always.
But you are so eager as modder to please the public that you keep making the mistake of promising things you can't deliver, on time that is. Because the mod is closer as ever, to be released.

All fine and well i hear you think, but when will it then be released??
All i can do is be honest and tell you what i personal think, and that is that i can finish the darn thing
at the end of next month January (2015).
Please believe me when i tell you that i am the most upset about this, it would have been so great when it could have been released at the end of this year. What a great holliday to release your mod, right?!
But, it just can't be like that. Quality is everything with this mod.

Know that it is not that i don't work hard on it because everyone tells me i am crazy to put in 10 hours a
day, and to be honest, it is also quit insane. But who minds, i just can't help myself.
So, please please bare a bit longer with me and soon you will be able to play a possible outcome of the
original Half Lifes episode 2, my episode 3.

If Valve are going to make Half Life 2: Episode Three, they have got to make it full of revenge for Alyx's father. Like, to try and wipe the combine forces straight out of City 17, to make it a free city.

Then maybe a new threat?

This is just my opinion, so I'm not trying to make it be like that, but I would like it like that.

Indeed, the game was pretty good. Good dose sequences, although it is true, Gordon + Range + gun indoors WAS seriously getting old. I for one can not wait to get out of the first quarter of game that you spend it more underground.
Late onset, but improvements sufficient for me.

As for negative comments on the graphics: a virtual world where some want to reproduce perfectly the reality and can destroy anything, it means that we must be very full of complex ... idea is to know that it is still a game. Furthermore, the studios spend 80% of production during the engine, graphics and effects, it clearly will not offer the story, concept, cohesive atmosphere, gameplay elements so smart. That is exactly the key issues for a game.
I for one look at Far Cry 2 and Crysis + sigh ... no monsters as much as realism, graphics broken mouth ... starvation, but ... freakin 'classic shooters in the most boring way.
I have heard comments like that **** what about the Neverwinter Nights 2, we should take lessons from Dungeon Siege. It's like comparing chess with (respectively) plates.

You can say what you will about Gates and Episode 2, but remain one of the most "valid" producers play. And I wait for Episode 3. When it is. Next year 2 years 3. I'll play, no matter how stupid you look to other games 'realistic'. Because, think-Dacians bathrooms, one is to reproduce photographic reality it's another to have a design concept and art design that will serve to create an atmosphere of a universe, to tell an interesting story and to leave some questions as Small ago ... :-) :-)
