  • Valve Corporation


    Half-Life 2: Episode Two is the second in a trilogy of new games created by Valve that extend the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life adventure.
    As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance, as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. As Episode Two begins, you now find yourself battling and racing against the Combine forces, as you attempt to cross the White Forest to bring an information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.

    Half-Life 2: Episode Two extends Half-Life game play with new creatures, weapons, and vehicles. Episode Two arrives in the fall of 2007 as part of The Orange Box, which also includes Team Fortress 2 and Portal. The Orange Box will be available for the PC as well as the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 console systems.

    The Half-Life franchise of games has earned over 100 Game of the Year awards and sold over 15 million retail copies worldwide. The intense, real-time gameplay delivered in The Orange Box is made possible only by Source, Valve’s proprietary engine technology.
