The lights are on
A Vietnamese beta tester has leaked the entire game client for Dota 2, and the Internet is on fire as the code is picked clean like a desert carcass. Among the massive data mine are details about a Dota store, and weapon information for something called ep3. Could that be Half Life Episode Three?
Team Liquid has parsed out some information from the Dota 2 game code. Contained within the Dota 2 client are weapon files for something called ep3. Check out the screen below.
Is Valve planning a flamethrower and an icegun for Half Life Episode 3? What exactly is this weaponizer? Right now we have more questions than answers, and ep3 could really be anything. Still, it’s fun to dream about Half Life Episode 3, especially since Valve doesn’t seem to ever want to talk about the game.

I haven't even played any of the Half Life series and I want a new one to come out, just because they mean so much to gaming.
great so it's just an episode and not a full fledged game? :/ mann..
And I thought the Kingdom Hearts 3 camp was desperate for details
They intentionally did this to freak out all of us fans who are so freaking excited for episode 3 even though we know we'll all be dead before they actually release it. Valve is so good at being a tease. A sexy, awesome tease. My suspicion is that it has nothing to do with half life 3, and they decided to just name it that for the lulz. Bunch of trolls =).
I'm telling you, HL3 will be announced at the VGA's.
i think i play episode 2 and all the expansions once a year. can we get episode 3 already so the world can move onto half life 3?
i actually don't mind the wait in all honesty. the industry is kind of all over the place right now in development and i think valve is waiting for the perfect time to construct the beast that will be known as half life 3. take as long as you like valve.
but as far as episode 3 goes... ya hurry the *** up.
Packing a demo of Half-Life 2: Episode 3 into DOTA 2, or making it an Orange Box-esque package would be enough to make me buy DOTA 2.
There had better be a new Half Life. I've been wanted more Gordon Freeman for years now. Bring on Ep3.
It's strange how secretive they are about this game
Half-Life best video game Ever...
I have a sinking feeling that this may just be a joke by the developers, but I will remain wishful!
Maybe Valve should just be nice and give us some Half Life news with a companion cube. That would shut us all up for a good while. But if they said "NO MORE HALF LIFE"...well, then we'd need cake too.
URK. URH. ARHG.
EP3? Not likely.
It is actually Half-Life 2: Episode 3. NOt Half Life episode 3
Never played Half-Life, but considering the hype surrounding anything relating to it, this could be huge news. And maybe a reason to play if this indeed true and not a hoax, I won't need to be praying for the third episode.
Wait THATS IT? Thats like me saying that Call of Duty MW3 may have a machine gun
