Half-Life 2: Aftermath Coming

97

The latest issue of PC Gamer UK has first word on a Half-Life 2 expansion pack Aftermath, and EuroGamer has a news story up with info on what's mentioned in the magazine. Tentatively scheduled for release this summer, Aftermath deals with the events you set in motion in the original game. You'll see more of Alyx, but Valve is keeping most other details to themselves. It also looks like Aftermath might be a Steam-only release.

"We really want Alyx to grow as a character," [designer Robin Walker] insists. "There was the promise of that in the first game, but we spent so much of our time introducing her as a character, we didn't really get a chance to spend time with her for an entire section. She would flit in and out. Since she's with you quite a lot, we're working on ways to make her a lot more interesting to be around, a lot more interesting to interact with." Ahem. A burgeoning romance perhaps?

    and it'll be 3rd-person so you can stare at her ass while playing.
