More Half-Life 2 Preloads

Steam News (thanks Frans) has word that further preloads of Half-Life 2 content over the online content delivery service are now underway, supporting a rumor of Dubious Quality suggesting a gold announcement nears. Here's word on the preloads:
The sixth phase of the Half-Life 2 preload begins to Steam account holders today. This will allow users to download the Half-Life 2 maps in encrypted form. No purchase is required to pre-load Half-Life 2, but is required to activate the game. The moment the game is made available, those who have pre-loaded and purchased the game via Steam will be ready to start playing.

No. Blue Shift isn't even available in its original form, due to neither Gearbox nor Valve wanting to take the time out to make it Steam-compatible (and it's not a simple matter of replacing WON with Steam.) HL:S is simply HL1 running in the Source engine. This means you get nice physics and water, but the graphics are 100% the same. Valve's probably waiting for the mod community to release a graphics pack. No OpFor: Source has been announced, but if they do, it'll be just like HL: Source--old textures, new water.


Maybe they'll finally fix that elevator bug, with the new engine...
