Half Life 2: Episode 3 Concept Art Surfaces- Confirms PS3?
The first piece of concept art for the Half-Life 2: Episode 3 has surfaced thanks to the 2008 IntoThePixel E3 art gallery. Half-Life 2: Episode 3 will be the final chapter in the HL2 series, and it has been rumored that the game would be heading to the PS3 despite the hem-hawing and side-stepping Valve has been doing to avoid the question.
While trying to maintain that they are not “PS3 developers”, IntoThePixel shows information for the game beside the concept art, and the PS3 along with the presumed PC and Xbox 360 is listed. While Valve will only be present at E3 2008 to discuss Left 4 Dead, I am sure they will still get bombard with HL2:Ep3 questions the whole time, especially now that this bit of info has come to light.
The concept art was created by Valve artists Ted Backman, Jeremy Bennett, and Tristan Redford and shows Gordon Freeman within a large Citadel-like environment with a Combine Advisor looming overhead.
