New Steam Weekly Update and Source SDK update released by Wester | 0 comments

On 04 Aug 2006

As of 8/4/2006:

Friday, August 4 2006



With the 5-day Red Orchestra free trial now in full swing, we hope everyone will get a chance to get in and see what this game is all about over the weekend. It is completely free to try out until this coming Monday, so give it a try and see if it is the kind of game for you.

Here at Valve we're all working around the clock to get all of the pieces of Episode Two ready to show at the Leipzig Games Convention. We're looking forward to showing off Episode Two, Team Fortress 2, and Portal to everyone at the show. If you're planning on being near Leipzig, Germany in late August, feel free to drop by our area and take a look.

We're also allowing people to get an early look at the beta version of the Steam store, which we'll be releasing to everyone very soon now. If you'd like to be part of the beta, you can opt in here.

And as for the Source SDK's update changelog:
Major New Features

* Half-Life 2: Episode One enhancements
* NPC behavior enhancements
* New Tool application called 'Source SDK Base'
o Uses the latest shipping version of the Source Engine (HL2: Episode One)
o This content will be updated whenever a new version of the Source Engine ships
o Mod makers should always use its SteamAppId (215) in their single player and multi-player mods
* Many other improvements and bug fixes
