Well folks, after all the gone gold rumors, it's finally all clear. All the pinata talk and such, we have a word from Vivendi and let me tell you, its quite some good news.

Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) today announced that Half-Life2, the sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed PC titles in gaming history, will ship to retail outlets around the world in November. The Company confirmed that Half-Life 2, developed by Valve Software, has gone gold with a planned retail street date of November 16, 2004. The countdown to the highly anticipated retail street date has begun around the world, as VU Games completes plans to ship localized versions of Half-Life 2 simultaneously in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Korean, Thai and Japanese.

Half-Life 2 has surpassed our expectations in every sense its high-quality graphics, ground-breaking physics and immersive first-person shooter gameplay set a new standard for PC action games, said Bruce Hack, CEO of VU Games. Half-Life 2 will go down as one of the best-selling PC titles, and we are thrilled to deliver this ground-breaking title to the worldwide gaming community this fall.


So all of you get your crowbars ready, we're in for an adventure.

Where'd you see that steam gets it 2 weeks early? I was under the impression that we'll get HL2 unlocked on the same date.

Pfft, Gold package is so useless. Bunch of useless junk, with a Sound Track which is gonna get ripped and put on SuprNova anyways. Silver is perfect. Comes with all of the source engine games, as well as Counter-Stirke: CZ and Counter-Strike: CZ Deleted Scenes.

Oh yeah, and HL2 does get released over Steam early for Steam Package purchasers with the game Pre-loaded. I heard it on a gaming website somewhere, I'll look for the link if I can find it x_x

Ok, if you sign into steam, you'll see the news post by VALVe, and you'll see that people who purchased the steam packages.....DONOT get it ahead of other people. However, people who own the Steam packages and pre-loadeded HL2 will get to play immidiately on release, so you won't have to drag your *** to the store like some other people :P
