HL2 Episode 2 vehicle teaser

Images of the Whip MIT Grad.

Having teased us mercilessly last week about the possibility of more Team Fortress 2 information in the coming weeks, Valve has chosen the Whip MIT Grad - the new vehicle introduced in Half-Life 2: Episode 2 - as the subject of this week's torment.

"Half-Life 2: Episode 2 is being playtested here at Valve regularly now, and one of the pieces of the game that's getting strong reactions from our testers is driving the game's new vehicle," the Steam update, which will probably fling itself siren-like in your face the next time you load the program, declares.


"This thing's got some major horsepower. Here's a peek at some of the early vehicle concept work," it continues - concluding with a trio of pics, one of which we've even taken the time to download and sling up on our own web-server. They're not wrong - it moved very quickly.

Still, all the new images and promises in the world are still struggling to make up for the news, announced earlier this month, that Episode 2's various boxed versions won't be with us until the winter, when it will be released on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as part of a bundle of new titles including the aforementioned TF2 and Portal.
