Poll Question 288 – Will HL3 be released in 2013?

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

There’s lots of talk about the Steambox and other Valve related stuff but let’s not forget HL3 – not that I thought you had!

In case you didn’t know there’s a Twitter account called IsHL3OutYet to let you know. Not that you would actually need it as I am sure everybody and their cat will hear about it within 1 minute of the official announcement.

Anyway, do you think it will be released this year? I’m not sure but obviously I hope so. My biggest concern is that I will need to buy new hardware to run it, which is going to be a serious problem for me.

I am very pleased to announce the next mapping competition series.

As I am sure you have guessed it’s called the 3×24.

This is just the series announcement. A proper site and full details, hopefully including the intro video, will be available in the New Year.

Fallback, Fire and Ice – Opposing Force

As Corporal Shepard, you are part of a platoon of marines supplying additional security at Monte del Oscuro (an astronomical research facility). Things never work smoothly as usual. Find a way to escape and lead your men to safety. There is a flashback to a Balkan Town to rescue a UN Representative from some warlords.

Finally, Ice, a massive set of levels set in Antarctica.   Something has been found in the ice and a number of foreign powers desire it.   After the little accident at Monte del Oscuro, you have been given a hardship posting. Defend the base against hostile forces and rescue the scientists!

Author’s Note:“You are a special forces commando. You were in Black Mesa during “the accident”.

Now 50 marines including you, have been sent to this base which could be “Black Mesa 2″. This is where the small amount of captured aliens were taken.

But all hell has broken loose and you were knocked out and thrown in a small building. Luckily an alien grunt came by and dropped a huge load of pistol ammo! “Good luck marine!”

Retaliation – Opposing Force

for Opposing Force

Author’s Note: “Retaliation picks up where Dark Operations left off. There will be no Xen or displacer in Retaliation.

Action is the main theme. It will mainly be an encounter against military targets, but there is a healthy dose of aliens too.

There will also be many sequences and a few puzzles to keep things interesting. Retaliation is the last of this series. Enjoy.”

Be sure to read the hints in the readme if you get stuck.
