Knowing ANYTHING about the anarchistic way Valve works, it's inconceivable that they WOULDN'T have someone spending at least some of their time on 'Source 2.0.' But that wouldn't mean they were planning on shipping it any time in the next year or two, let alone using it for a specific game release.

With Valve, it's always best to just wait and see.

Those trees look like they got ripped out of Minecraft and I hate MC. Are you people blind? Not trying to be a jerk but so many other engines do it so much better. And I am a Valve junkie. Just saying this is nothing impressive. Seen better vegetation in how many other engines? You get the point.

I can't tell if it's the effect of "grainy filter" setting being turned on but I sure hope that's the case as I don't want no ugly and grainy "voxel based facelift" to the source engine.

Looks to be a great improvement over the ancient Source engine but count me in with the "too little, too late: already dated tech" crowd.

Perhaps Valve should find some up-and-coming developers with a promising game engine and buy them out. It seems to be the only way that Valve makes progress. Valve is like the Borg: they can only assimilate, never innovate.

It is a nice improvement over LFD 2, but really with all the new engines out there this will be dated soon if not already if Valve sticks to their extremely long development cycle. I hope my grandkids might have a shot at seeing HL3 in their lifetimes.

Left for Dead is a OK game the fact that it's on Steam make it popular by default. It's a good looking game it's fun as hell but slightly overated....

I have been playing for 5 years ever since left for dead 1. I have tired somewhat of the game though. Most of the players are bad, and really needs an update of some king to draw back the original players. It is a fun game i believe still the 2nd most popular with all the newbies getting the thrills us old timers experienced. I now play War of the Vikings and most interested in what is coming for that as it is is access only mode right now

It's a game best played with friends; I used to play versus hundreds of hours with friends. The game was so much fun when everyone not raging or acting like kids in versus.

"The PowerPoint slide has gamers dreaming about Left 4 Dead 3 and Half Life 3..."

Impossible! Valve doesn't know how to count to three!
