Team Fortress 2 beta live

Treats for Steam pre-orders.

Those of you pre-ordering The Orange Box on Steam will now be able to play the Team Fortress 2 beta.

It will give you a chance to try out Valve's new cartoon-style multiplayer masterpiece, the same one we just today called, well, lots of things - all variations on "fantastic".

The Orange Box costs USD 49.95 on the digital distribution service, and pre-purchasers will be given a 10 per cent discount as well as a free copy of Peggle Extreme.

Inside the rest of The Orange Box is Half-Life 2, HL2: Episode One, HL2: Episode Two and Portal.

You will be able to get your hands on the full pack on Steam on 10th October, or in shops alongside the 360 version on the 12th. The PS3 offering is expected to follow a couple of weeks later.
