HL2: Aftermath release date

And pricing, platinum pack news.

Valve has confirmed that it aims to release Half-Life 2: Aftermath on April 24th, along with a Platinum edition of Half-Life 2.

Aftermath, announced last year, is the first single-player expansion for Half-Life 2 to expand on the events of the game, and had previously been down for a November 2005 "launch window".

Speaking to various organisations yesterday, however, Valve's Doug Lombardi said, "We're currently targeting April 24th for the release of both Aftermath and Platinum."

Aftermath will be made available via Steam, Valve's digital distribution service, for $19.99, with a boxed version also available through publishing partner EA. European gamers should probably anticipate a Friday, April 28th launch for the boxed game in line with European publishing practices.

The Platinum pack will include Half-Life 2, HL2 Deathmatch, Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source and Aftermath.
