    It's official. The Lost Coast will be released this evening (in a few moments actually). As you all should know, The Lost Coast is free for all owners of Half-Life 2.[br]Though anyone can play it on their lower-end system, to appreciate the full benefits of The Lost Coast, you will need a high end machine to play. Lost Coast features some excellent graphical features including HDR, double resolution textures and much higher-polygon models (and much more).[br]The Lost Coast will contain around 15 minutes of brand new game play, set around parts of the City 17 coastal area that was originally cut from the game.[br]Watch this space for an announcement as to when it is released.[br]UPDATE: Half-Life 2: The Lost Coast has now been released. Restart your Steam clients to play.

    Awesome.
    In 10 minutes, yeah? Don't they usually release stuff at 4 PM on the west coast?

    Doug said "in just a few moments".

    SixThree, it's been known it was 15 minutes for ages. I know you're not, but don't start complaining... you'll get newbies shouting, fainting and dying over the fact that it's "too short" ;(

    Remember, it IS just a tech demo.

    I don't care how short it is, it's another piece to my favorite game series.

    Can't wait.

    I didn't know it was 15 minutes :( And thanks for noting that I wasn't complaining, I'm just slightly shocked.

    Haven't been paying attention much eh? I think Valve has said more than once that it was just a 15 minute map. :p Although I'm sure you could stretch it out to 60 minutes by just admiring the scenery..

    Oh, I did forget to mention. Don't forget there's sort of like a "director's commentary" with Valve staff talking you through various points of the game. This will tell you more about the technology, story of Half-Life 2 (probably to a lesser extent) and the making of the game/s.

    His reason "I pulled something out my ass"

    VALVe has learned, they won't give a date unless they are sure of it now, last week when they said it would be this week, I believed them. Look at DoD:S, it was released when they said it would be aswell.

    Of course you can. Which would suggest that you're speaking shite.

    Unless of course you have a reason for the fact that Doug Lombardi has told me that it will be released today?
