View Full Version : HL2 beta maps

07-03-2007, 10:33 AM
i was switching through a couple of HL2 videos on youtube. and started wondering. is it possible to get the beta maps valve didn't use in the actual game? and why did they remove all this cool stuff? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeX_TlUEc9s&mode=related&search=
like at the end the strider kills that poor dude. and actually i think the city is more detailed on the videos than in the actual game. why did they do this? because the would have caused serious CPU power usage? (GPU or CPU?) in fact... i would really like to try the beta of the game. (because it looks more cool.) so is there a place where i can download the beta? it would be cool.

Some of the E3 maps are out there in the internet from when the source code was stolen before release. We can't link to them here, so your kinda on your own. Also, the beta is not more detailed than the final release, especially with the advent of HDR since then.

If you don't know what a WIP is, then why did you say it?

Work In Progress.
