I hope u realize the pre-load isnt the actual game....just files that wont change. Nice to see it's begun....finally. Now only 16 more months for the rest of it to get out.

Default Re: OMG!!! I'm downloading HL2!!!!

I finished downloading it. Its about a gig....and yes, it's free to download. You'll have to pay for it once the rest of the files are up though. ( In 2016) (Im staying a skeptic till I see a gold announcement)

Pre-load means...

" our pos network steam cant handle the traffic, so were gonna push out all the unchangable, useless files now, so when we decided to finally finish the game, steam wont be swarmed with people downloading 3 gigs and taking up all the space since were too lazy and too cheap to up the bandwith."

Actually the download is available to anyone who wants it. Those who have the HL2 coupon just wont need to purchase it, those without a coupon can still download it, but will need to use a credit card to activate the game when it's done.
