Half-Life 2 finds Lost Coast

Valve releases single-player level showcasing new tech for Source engine; content designed for high-level PCs.

by

Valve today announced that Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, bonus content for the company's popular first-person shooter, is now available for download via Steam. The add-on features one single-player level meant to show off some new technology incorporated into the game's prized Source engine.

The new tech is high dynamic range lighting, which amps up the high bar of graphics already set by the shooter. Valve admits that old rigs have no place trying to run the level and that system requirements are "very high." Valve's download service, Steam, will prompt would-be players if their CPUs do not meet the company's minimum requirements.

Half-Life 2: Aftermath, the first full expansion to the game, is still in the works. For more on Lost Coast, check out GameSpot's hands-on preview.

I believe Valve Software in developing HD Lost Coast for only to those with High End Computers cheated paying customers that were already members and waiting for the release. Agreement was for all those paying for updates and new releases were lied to and/or a breach of on-line signed contract as registered (CD games) as well as the Valve Registration just to play their purchases. Where's our Rights of legal contracts signed on-line with Valve's agreement? It should be reviewed and brought to attention of Valve's legal staff, if they have one.

Is it worth it to buy HL2 on PC if i already have it for X-box?
