The website for Half-Life 2: Episode One went live today. HL2:EP1 picks up where Half-Life 2 left off (reactor explosion going off and Gordon and Alyx being taken away or whatever by the G-Man).
Consciousness returns. Gordon and Alyx discover they’ve somehow escaped both the reactor explosion and the G-Man’s malevolent grasp. Before they can ponder their miraculous survival, the crippled Citadel lurches back to life just long enough to initiate a self-destruct sequence. With Alyx at his side, Gordon must flee a city in chaos before the Citadel’s final detonation turns City 17 into a toxic, mutant-infested crater.
I’m soooo pre-ordering this as soon as I can. 😀
