Free Alien Swarm & DLC Monday

Steam News reflects back on the two years since Valve hired the developers of Alien Swarm, saying they have not forgotten the game, and that in between other projects, the team spent a lot of time bringing the game to the Source engine. Their plan is to release the updated version on Monday for free, along with an SDK, saying: "In addition to the game, Valve will also release the complete code base for Alien Swarm. This includes updates to the Source engine SDK and full Steamworks integration. If youíve ever thought about developing a mod on the Source engine with Steamworks, this release provides more insight and examples for using Steamworks in game production."

Yeah, this is an awesome surprise. I'm not sure I like all of the changes I see in the screenshots (compared to the original), but I'll still eat my hat if this doesn't kick ass. Congrats again, Black Cat!

Finally! I can't wait. Did anyone finish the original UT2004 mod? It's SO hard!

After all this time, seeing their forums slowly dying... This sure was unexpected.

Unexpected? This is the biggest surprise Valve has provided for me since killing the Black Box. Fortunately this time it's an awesome, reverse surprise.

Fantastic news. Wonder how many people will quit immediately after being griefed by intentional friendly fire, or frustrating people to the point of flames because they don't know what they're doing. Hopefully no one, but I expect the worst.

This is such excellent news.

Hell yes!

Alien Swarm was one of my favorite UT2004 mods. I would have paid for this, but instead it's free.

It would seem that Valve's plans for world domination are proceeding as planned.
