>Like the original Half-Life, Valve currently has no plans for a pre-release demo.
>Headcrabs will be back! Although some of the Xen aliens will be your friends this time around.
>Barney is back, and all the voice actors from the original Half-Life are reprising their roles. Also returning is Half-Life's original writer, Marc Laidlaw.
>While the new engine has all sorts of fancy features, it's still designed to scale and work on lower-end machines. Apparently a 700mhz processor and a video card capable of running DX6 is enough, although a 2ghz with a GeForce4 is recommended. >Rumors about NVidia or ATI exclusivity are unfounded.
>Alyx is not a playable character. You're still Gordon Freeman, and Gordon doesn't talk. Nor will there be cut scenes.
>Scripted Sequences will be more interactive.
>ALL objects in the game world are affected by the physics.
>Movement speed of HL will be retained.
>There will be drivable vehicles in both single and multiplayer.
>Known locations: City 17, a harbor, a jail, the suburbs, a dried up ocean, an icebreaker ship.
>An upgraded Hammer editor should ship with the game, but instead of just editing maps it's now described as a "complete development environment" for maps, mods, and more.
>Half-Life 3 is planned, so expect another cliffhanger ending.

But of course, HL2 multiplayer is a token gesture. The real Valve Multiplayer experience is coming next year....

You're insane if you think TF2 will be an add-on pack...

Ive finally figured it out...

Valve said 3 years ago that HL2 would not be multiplayer and would only be a singleplayer game,

TF2 was supposed to be a multiplayer only game...

Now below are official comments posted from valve last october 2002 regarding TF2. This leads me to believe that the above mentioned is true and HL1 will be single player only and included on the disk will be TF2 for multiplayer.

The official statement from valve about TF2 now begins..

"We'll start showing it again once it gets to a certain point, and we're now getting there.

There are a lot of rumours flying around suggesting that it's never coming out, but it's absolutely still in development. We hold our quality bars up really high. When people finally get to see it, they're going to understand what we've been up to and why we've been busy doing that rather than other things."

That was the last interview which was around october or so of 2002.

I heard the pic on the cover of all these magazines is an actual in-game screenshot (minus the blurring).

No, its not : (

I dont expect it to be better looking than Doom III, but it will have a very nice skeleton system. Hopefully like in Doom III when you shoot someone against the wall, they dont fall though it, where you just see their feet. IN Doom III they go back then slide down the wall.

I do expect the maps to have high detail with alot of poloygons to make up stuff you would normaly see in that envroment eg. if its an office phones that arnet blocks with textures. and so on.

Thats what they talked about back in 99 is they have a super LOD engine so they cna have an insane amount of polys but not sacrafice fps.
