Along with the game get the complete code base for Alien Swarm that features updates to the Source engine as well as the SDK."

Given how common preloads are, it seems more likely to me that Valve is using this release as a way to test their infrastructure. A solid 2 GB download, during peak hours with high demand. Plus, it's free, so any complaints are easily disregarded (after all, it's FREE).


I'm probably looking too far into it, but in truth the lack of preload doesn't matter to me one bit. My world won't end because I have to wait a little while for a free game that's fun.
