Mod HQ recently had the great opportunity to interview Erik Johnson, Valve Software's Project Manager. Many things are discussed and while not all of my questions were answered (which is, of course, more than understandable, but also the reason some of it may appear a little disjointed), there are more than enough juicy details here to sink your teeth into whether you are a player or a developer.

Q: The last Steam weekly news update stated once again that The Lost Coast will be released soon. Still, many would like to know more about the Counter-Strike: Source and Day of Defeat: Source content that was mentioned in the same announcement.

A: While we haven't done a significant release for Counter-Strike: Source in a little while, we've been continuously building content for it. There are two new maps on the horizon for Counter-Strike: Source, de_nuke, and cs_militia, which will bring the total number of maps we've released to 18. The team has also been busy working on getting the rest of the player models built, which we'll also be releasing soon. November should be a fun month for Counter-Strike: Source fans.

On the Day of Defeat: Source front, we have a few maps currently in development. There will be a mix of new maps and a Source adaptation of an original Day of Defeat map coming before the calendar year is over.


Get the full story from the interviews section of the Mod HQ website. Things discussed include the Aftermath expansion, the Steam platform, and more. Enjoy.
