Half-Life 2 Steam Pricing Confirmed

Valve today confirmed the final package and pricing options for purchasing Half-Life 2 through the company's Steam distribution service. Starting tomorrow, October 7 at 11am Pacific, users will be able to purchase Half-Life 2 via Steam. Of course, the game won't unlock for you until it is officially released, but you will get the final version of Counter-Strike: Source right away. Not a bad way to pass the time. Those of you who bought the ATI/Half-Life 2 bundle are eligible for the Bronze package, though you also have the option to apply the Bronze price toward purchase of a more-deluxe package.

Here's the official breakdown of the packages and pricing:

1. Bronze -- $49.95

  • Half-Life 2*

  • Counter-Strike: Source
2. Silver -- $59.95
  • Half-Life 2*

  • Counter-Strike: Source

  • Half-Life 1: Source*

  • Day of Defeat: Source*

  • Valve's back catalog currently available on Steam
3. Gold -- etc...

*To be made available upon products' release.
