    I was wondering, when Half Life 2 comes out, is it coming out with a new Counter Strike, or are they keeping the same CS, or what is happening with all of it???

    The only multiplayer that is going to initially come with Half-life is going to be Counter-strike: Source, the other mods and HL2 deathmatch itself will come at a later time.

    EP, where did you hear that Half-Life 2 multiplayer was coming out later after the game was released? if i remember correctly from the E3 video's.... they never even MENTIONED Half-Life 2 multiplayer, let alone it coming out at a later date. i think they just didn't comment on it yet. maybe that's what they still had to work on or something. Hell, if they don't release multiplayer till a later update, there'll probably be a LOT of unhappy people, and i'm pretty sure Valve would be thinking of that too since it's almost going on a year past their first estimated release date.

    Gabe or Cliffe said it.
    I think it was Cliffe actually, in the interview at csnation.

    yeah from all reports I have read from Gabe or Cliffe at csnation cs source will be released with hl2 or probably will be able to be purchased on it's own at Hl2 launch


    edit...found this quote on csnation.net

    Counter-Strike: Source is the only multiplayer component shipping with Half-Life 2. Valve has, however, stated that they are porting more than Counter-Strike to the Source engine. Day of Defeat is another multiplayer mod being ported to the Source engine, but will not make the retail release. It is likely that you can download other source mods through Steam at a later time.

    Found that on halflife2.net. That makes it seem like Half-Life 2 does have multiplayer, if you buy the version of it WITH multiplayer. I just really hope that there will be HL2DM right off the bat cause there's no chance that i'm gonna buy Half-Life 2 and pass time by playing an upgraded version of an old mod that i hated the most. well... i'll still buy HL2 anyway, but i'm probably not gonna touch CS.

    Apparently the HL:Source version is pretty much the same but interesting :)

    I'm looking forward to DOD: Source, the current DOD really pushed the HL engine to its limits in its latter incarnations, so I'm hoping the new release will be just as good :)
