In this news update, the team show off the new Charger enemy. You might recognize the Charger from “Raising the Bar”, and from some unused files in Half-Life 1.
The model is quite detailed, and we can’t wait to face off against it.
Also featured are the new Phoenix Army Sentry Turret, the Combine’s mysterious C.L.R. rifle, and the… Vortex Gun? Funky name.
As for the demo? Well, it was originally set for November 21st, but now it has been delayed until some time in December. Yes, December, the lovely month when school ends, people get things for free, Christmas muzak gets played, and snow rains down from the sky.
It will feature several chapters: “The City”, “Wastelands”, “Deadlock Conflict”, and as an added treat, the now cut “Outlands” chapter. You’ll also find screenshots for these chapters in the update, as well as the song “Sniper Mission”, straight from the OF2 soundtrack.
Overall, the update is great, and we can’t wait for the demo!
