In 2003 a leaked beta version of HL2 was released onto the internet. It contained elements that were not seen in the final version. Also, the book “Half-Life 2: Raising the Bar“ contained many idea, models, weapons etc. that were not seen in the final released version. Perhaps some of these ideas may make it into other episodes or storylines but only Valve know, unless…
Would you pay for a Half-Life 2 Bonus Content Pack from Valve?
Valve would release the pack to all registered users of Half-Life 2 and the subsequent episodes. The contnet would not be usable on its own but have to be used in community made mods. This would have the effect of bolstering the mod scene at a time when things seems a little flat. In fact this could be a regular pack (Well, perhaps bi-yearly).
No doubt everybody would answer “YES!” if it was free but what about if you actually had to pay for it. How much would you pay? $10, $20 more? Don’t forget this would mean that you could not play mods that were developed using assets from the pack unless you also bought it. Would it limit the distribution of a mod or inspire many mod mods?
