And you thought we were done releasing media for a while!

Posted by on

We've got a lot of surprises this time around, and while this won't be a three day media release like last time, we've got just as much content.


New Weapon

First off, we noticed last time that a lot of people were disappointed to not see any new weapons. We thought it over, and I'm sure you're all going to love it. Now, rather than spoil the surprise of this new weapon, we decided to just give you a small hint now and then. So, without further adieu, here's the first hint:


Pretty sweet eh? No? Well, here's one more hint:
You've only heard about this weapon until now, and it kicks the ass of everyone and everything in the near vicinity, INCLUDING YOU!

One more hint!

We've decided to give you all one more hint, to spark some thinking.
The weapon has a kill everything button.


Map Updates

That's right. As always, we've got plenty of new screenshots for you, showing off our maps, materials, models, and even particles. I'm just flying to my death with excitement!

Here's 14 fresh screenshots, straight from City 17.


















That's it, folks!

Well, that's it for this media release. But check back often, we've got plenty more ahead!

Weel i looked at that particle out of a another prespective , blue + orange colors were portals , new weapon was a longtime the portalgun in the videobase (didnt existed) more hope gave us borealis with a container signed aperature scoence and the ticking was the button on the countdowns , can be also counted as ticking till the dead , would mean till the end of glados , combines could only hardly survive in cold places , glados could set the temparature better with the help of "KRAKEN BASE" so glados was delivered to the combine by their own and the portalguns were supposed with GLaDOS to go to the AS centers but if i count the place of the sun then i can say that the place where it goed must be africa , they "COUNTED" the days till it will arive so i think this should be a explain for it , i hope i hutten the target.

Alright. "You're hot/cold" is a saying here in Amerca and Britain (Possibly more of the world as well) meaning you're close or far away.

My me saying "You're frozen", I'm saying your so far from the truth you might as well stop looking.

But hey, keep trying! You might figure it out! Just use the hints I gave you.

Oh in here we say it water if away or fire if near , firewatch when we found it. (i forget the last hint so nw i think its a death ray , the particles are of removed bodies , the "kill everytinhg button" maybe an pulsecharge but it wont fit in the africa , maybe the temparature counter is in africa so high like the ray temparature??

Yes! Looking frickin fantastic man! Beautifully refined, crisply lit, loving it. God damn it...here was me thinking I had an advantage because I'm in australia, and yet I'm still unsure on what the new weapon could be. I thought portals for a split second as well, but it doesn't really count as a weapon. Ok, let's get this straight, do you mean counter as in to counteract, or counter as in counting?

Wonderful update anyhow!

I believe it's a flamethrower or a similar weapon. When he says Australians have a counter to it he's referring to TF2 and the sniper's Jarate.

Ah ok, thanks for clearing that up. Haven't gotten around to TF2 so I was out of the loop on that one. Curious to see more clues.

Has nothing to do with TF2, but Australians.

I didn't sign the NDA, which I probably should, but I don't want to spoil the surprise of what the new weapon is, except "Holy ****." Na-na-na.

My edit time was over so here we continue australia instead of africa , maybe the australia temparature is like the ray temparature (COUNTER counts the heat) that would explain the blue particles instead of those shiny , redishyelowwhite.

Or the weapon does not exist and it was a joke , the particle is of an building explosion and the other hints dont have to do something wit it , if you accept me that it was a joke i will be not angry. (posting bad rating because i thinked about the "GUN" is no way to get rid of this comment)

I would love a weapon that shoots fire. but as its shooting its ammo away the alternate fire of an ice beam is charged. and visa versa. so the weapon absorbes heat energy for latter use but has a maximum copacity.

A flame thrower could be possible.
