Half-Life 2 Aftermath is no more: Valve's renamed it Half-Life 2 Episode One.
The name-change represents a decision to shift towards an episodic format that should give HL2 fans a regular flow of new content, Valve's marketing director Doug Lombardi confirmed to GameSpot on Friday.
Which, given that most if not all of us are HL2 fans, has got to be a good thing. Aftermath has been in development for quite a while though, so unless stuff's being chopped around to fit a new schedule, we'd have to question how regular that flow's going to be.
Anyway, Aftermath - sorry, Episode One - is due out on Steam on April 24th and should be almost done by now. It'll start pre-loading shortly beforehand.
