"I free people from the constraints burdening the mind, from the dirty and degrading self-torture chimera called conscience and morality, and from the claims of liberty and independence, which grows up to only a few..." Episode 17 - this story is based on the maps of the remake of Half-Life 2 beta, and cut version of HL2 content. Furthermore, EP 17 will have their own maps and locations. Episode 17 does not apply to episodic Half-Life 2 and is based on an independent history.

Hello everyone!

Today we tell about the next location after the "Canals" - Ravenholm! The bells for the Dead - a new title of this chapter in Episode 17. Ravenholm - a former mining town that after the massive bombing of capsules with headcrabs, became a huge farm of the living dead. You will arrive at a huge port Ravenholm where will your way through the nightmares of the city. You will also go down in the mines of the city, which had to stretch across two maps! to implement all the gameplay ideas of the chapter. But do not expect to find tranquility here for your soul, because here you will have to wait for something even more terrible, strong, and no less nasty.

But this is your problem has not yet come to an end. The city is filled with a variety of traps, ranging from artificial catapults of devices and hovering in the air cars and garbage suspended from above the narrow streets of this city. And on top of all this horror, you will meet one of the living, but no less mad man.

Develop a plan for Ravenholm conducted long enough (most of all - the plan has not yet completed), but I'm afraid a lot more time to go away and visual content development part of this location. I will not list all the changes in this location, but I will say - now the location is completely different from the release version of the game, and it's already full rework HL2 beta version. In Episode 17, we want to give Ravenholm even more neglect and despair. We will make it worse and more disgusting. We have increased a variety of traps (about them we will talk about later), and the means of survival has become even greater. For Ravenholm created its own, private atmosphere, which will be complemented by a stunning soundtrack and ambient sound.

Damn, this looks incredible. Every time I think I've seen the best of Source modding, some bucko appears out of nowhere to prove me wrong.
