[quote] WORLD EXCLUSIVE: VALVE CONFIRMS HL2: EPISODE 2!
A follow-up to Episode 1 already well underway, Valve reveals, while also handing us tantalising info on Episode 1's storyline
15:00 Valve Software has confirmed with us that Half-Life 2: Episode 2 is already being whipped into shape, as the Half-Life fan base waits with bated breath for the release of Half-Life 2: Episode 1 (previously called Aftermath).
Valve's Robin Walker, designer/engineer on Episode 1, informed us that Episode 2 "has been in development for some time" in an interview that'll be winging its way to you shortly. Although he didn't elaborate further, it sounds as though Episode 2 may appear sooner than we could have hoped. We're definitely keeping trigger fingers crossed on that one, especially as the developer has aimed to offer "between 4 to 6 hours" of gameplay time with Episode 1, according to Walker - shorter, perhaps, than fans might have expected.
During the interview, he also dropped a few teasers about Episode 1's storyline. Discussing the challenge of penning the plot for the episode in comparison to penning the plot for Half-Life 2, Walker said that the developer has had "to be considerate to our audience in terms of giving them what they want". While "Episode 1 will not end with an all-encompassing conclusion", it will address some specific questions, he revealed: "For example, "What happened to the Citadel at the end of Half-Life 2?" and "What happened to Breen, is he dead?" and "How does the G-Man factor into all of this?"
Keep eyes peeled for our full interview with Robin Walker, in which he dishes further dirt on Episode 1 and chats about Half-Life 2 in general - coming soon!
