SteamPlay release?

Hi,

I couldn't find any information about this on the site or the news release - will it be a SteamPlay release or only for Windows? :-)

Kind regards,
daxxar.

It seems to be PC only at the moment, but don't worry, it will come to Mac.

If you look at the system requirements, the supported OS are Windows® 7 / Vista / Vista64 / XP. But I'm pretty sure they will release it for Mac later.

btw, by "free", they mean "Free", or "Free for anyone owning the Source SDK" ?

I know 99% of gamers own at least one Source game, but for the normal people out there, will it be possible for them to enjoy the game too ?

The mods that require Source SDK access say so clearly. Since this says free, it's going to be free to everyone.

Woaw woaw, you mean, free Source SDK = access to Source mods for EVERY-FREAKING-ONE ?

That's a kickass news ! O_O no more excuse for not trying pearls like NEO-TOKYO° !

Can't wait for the confirmation Valve is giving free Source SDK licences

It's confirmed

In addition to the game, Valve will also release the complete code base for Alien Swarm. This includes updates to the Source engine SDK and full Steamworks integration. If you’ve ever thought about developing a mod on the Source engine with Steamworks, this release provides more insight and examples for using Steamworks in game production.

So its a source game that uses a seperate sdk? me confused.

EDIT: Tile based map generator? What the hell is that crap?
EDIT2: In the includes: list, it says source sdk. Now I'm extremely confused.

It will probably become more clear once it is actually released on Monday.
