Source 2 Engine Details

A new video from Valve News Network discusses some Source 2 engine details that were hidden in plain sight in a recent Artifact update (thanks Ant). They found help files related to the Rubikon physics engine and other details, and also discuss the odd history of how information and new features of Source 2 have trickled out seemingly randomly over the years. Word is: "Today on Valve News Network, we take a look at a leak which occurred on January 10th hidden within an Artifact update. Here, we see some new features and capabilities of Source 2's physics engine, Rubikon."

Sad but true. Here is Gordon Freeman as he waits for Valve to get off their ass. https://youtu.be/i2NKOjYOuGQ

Rubikon will be the main feature of the sequel we've all been waiting for: imagine how great and real it will look... when the cards get moved in Artifact 2!

But what if I don't want to cross it?

Itís going to be a revolutionary episodic game engine. You start out with no physics and a text interface (the physics episode never gets released).

Idk, they might try to push out another Left for Dead. I'm more a fan of Dead Island or Dying Light style game. Personally not a fan of constantly spawning enemies but guess a lot of players didn't mind.

This is probably like the third or fourth engine iteration that they've referred to as Source 2.

EDIT: Correction, I assumed this article meant the existence of "Source 2" was leaked. Upon actually reading I see it's talking about additional details/features of Source 2 leaking... DOTA2 and Artifact are already running on Source 2.
So instead of 3rd or 4th, I'll go with 2nd or 3rd ... this is not a new "Source 2" but rather the same Source 2 we've heard about for years and DOTA2 was ported to and Artifact is on.

Artifact 2: Battle Royale Virtual Reality! Or... A2:BRVR

Valve sure cares about what gamers want... NOT.
