Valve Giving Away Half-Life 2 For Free At Gamescom 2010

Amidst the chaos of running around Gamescom, I actually had a few seconds to sit down this morning, and what did I do with my time? Well, I stopped by the Portal 2 booth yesterday, and was handed a Steam promotional card that said “Two Free Games” (pictured above) and included a download voucher on the back. I had wanted to find out what the code was for yesterday, but didn’t have time. Back to the whole “had a few seconds this morning” thing.

I just redeemed the code, and as I was doing so, I jokingly said to myself, “Self, wouldn’t it be funny if the code was actually for Half-Life 2: Episode 3?” Obviously, it wasn’t. But I wasn’t far off, as the code was actually for Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast!

Like most people reading this right now, I obviously don’t need another copy of HL2 (I have it installed on two computers and I have the Orange Box), but I still felt compelled to share with you that Valve is currently giving away one of the greatest games of all time for free to anyone who stops by their booth. I’ll try to snag a few more cards over the next few days and maybe we’ll do a little contest to hand them out. We’ll see.

Anyway, just thought you’d like to know in case you needed yet another reason to love Valve. Now back to the show. Auf wiedersehen!
