It feels like Valve is on a serious trailer rampage here, which is why they threw two new videos at us at once this time around.
The first of five new gameplay movies from Half-Life 2: Episode Two are now available. In addition to revealing some of the new locations featured in Episode Two, these movies also demonstrate some of the technical updates made to the Source Engine, such as the new particle system and soft shadowing effects. Half-Life 2: Episode Two is targeted for release in Q1 2007 for release on the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and will include Team Fortress 2 and Portal.
It’s going to be difficult to wait until early next year for this one. It looks even more amazing with each new video! As always, these are in WMV HD format.
