At a press event for Electronic Arts, current distributors of Valve's [i]Half-Life 2[/i] (except for over Steam), Gabe Newell dropped plans for what's next for the [i]Half-Life[i] series – a version of [i]Half-Life 2[/i] for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. These new versions for the next-generation consoles will come with plenty of content, as not only [i]Half-Life 2[/i] will be included, but also [i]Episode One[/i], [i]Episode Two[/i], and two new titles, [i]Portals[/i] and, shocker of shockers, [i]Team Fortress 2[/i].
[i]Team Fortress 2[/i]'s art has been updated to reflect a more cartoonish art style, and the overall feel is that of a ‘60's spy flick. [i]Portals[/i], meanwhile, is intended to be a puzzle game where players use a portal-generating device to get around obstacles and defeat enemies.
These two versions of [i]Half-Life 2[/i] are expected to launch alongside [i]Half-Life 2: Episode Two[/i]'s Steam launch, which should be near the end of the year. Stay with MyGamer for updates.
