Anybody have any idea when this add-on for HL2 will be released? I believe
it will be a free download from Steam, correct?

Can't answer your question sorry but one question of my own - what do you
mean by add-on? - far as I'm aware Lost Coast isonly one level cut from HL2
and about to be released to demonstrate HDR. Do you mean Aftermath which is
an expansion? Just didn't want you to be disappointed when it does come
out.

Aftermath is a tech demo, and the level was made for the demo (i.e. NOT
cut from HL2). It's self-contained.

I think what he meant by "cut from HL2" was that the level was
originally supposed to be a part of HL2, but for some reason was not
included.. either something to do with storyboarding or maybe short dev
time trying to get the game out onto the market before HL Fans kicked up
even more of a stink than they already had been doing for the previous
18 months :-)

I know what he meant. I was just under the impression that the level was
specifically designed to show off the HDR capabilities, as in, the level
was designed on it's own and was not part of the HL2 development phase
until after the game was released.

IIRC it was a level that was planned to be in the game (and the fisherman
was also meant to be in HL2) but was never made for whatever reason. It has
now been made as a tech demo for HDR. Seems to me we are both correct? The
point however is that it is one level only - I didn't want Frank to be
expecting (and then be disappointed that it isn't) more.

True. Some people were expecting this to be fairly long, but according
to 1up.com it's gonna be around 10 minutes, which sounds about right for
a tech demo level.

Looks like some of you are confusing Aftermath with Lost Cost.

Looks like some of you are confusing "Aftermath" with "Lost Coast".
