    More Half-Life 2 Rumors
    4/22/2003 16:31 PST | Half-Life | by Fragmaster | 24 Comments
    More Half-Life 2 info continues to leak out, here's some of the highlights:

    * Half-Life 2 is scheduled for a September 30th release.
    * Yes, you're still Gordon Freeman, and yes, the story assumes you went to work for the G-Man.
    * Half-Life 2 takes place in a European city called "City 17."
    * Headcrabs will be back! Although some of the Xen aliens will be your friends?
    * Barney is back. And so is Half-Life's original writer, Marc Laidlaw.
    * While the new engine has all sorts of fancy features, it's still designed to work on lower-end machines. Apparently a 700mhz processor and a video card capable of running DX6 is enough, although a 2ghz with a GeForce4 is recommended.
    * The girl in the promo art is named Alyx, a daughter of a scientist who factors into the story somehow. She's not playable.
    * Scripted Sequences will be more interactive.
    * Half-Life 3 is planned, so expect another cliffhanger ending.
