Report article RSS Feed 2.3 Release Around the Corner

After a long wait, Beta 2.3 is due for release this week! It will be downloadable directly through Steam and requires a copy of any Source game to run.

That's right everyone, 2.3 is just around the corner! We have been working together with Valve to get 2.3 out the door this week.

It has been a long wait, but the day is almost here. I hope everyone is as excited as we are!

If you missed the change log, you can see it in its entirety here.

We have also updated the Player Guide and Screenshots pages. You will find a few shots of te_sandstorm, our new territory map.

Those of you who haven't been keeping up with PVK news, 2.3 includes the Gestir class for the Viking team. Check out a video of him in action below.

That's all for now; the next time you hear from us, the game will be available to download through Steam!

So sad mods like this can make it on Steamworks.

Welp, let's hope more start making it on it that deserve it.

If you don't have anything useful to say, then why bother clicking on the link to this news? Don't have any other place to go to with your pessimism?

"mods like this"? Do you even know what you are talking about? PVK2 is without doubt one of the highest quality mods released for HL2, and even if you didn't like the gameplay you have to give the team some credit for all the work they've done on the graphical design, which is pretty impressive and surpasses that of commercial games to be honest.

And yes it is good news that it finally made it to Steamworks, been pondering if I should reinstall PVK2 or not since I last removed it for low HDD space, and the new version over Steam is a good incentive to do just that :)
