Half-Life 3 Images Leaked
Filed under: HALF-LIFE 3, HALF-LIFE, VALVE

And here we go again. Fan site ValveTime.net seems to have grabbed concept art from a "Valve employee." The images are supposedly from the rumored Half-Life 3 (or rather Half-Life 2: Episode 3), which was supposed to be released long ago or that's what may eager fans expected at least.

Anyway, the art features well-known HL2 character Alyx Vance wearing Eli's jacket, although there are other nice-looking images too, presumably all designed four years ago.

Valve hasn't made any official statements related to these images, but so far they're not denying it.

You can see the leaked images here.

Thanks, CVG.

Maybe... maybe not.

I wonder if they'll make a story recap of some sorts at the beginning of the game.

BTW love the new picture Vader. You should trim the beard more. Leave just a light shadow.

That's fan-art.

Also adding to the confusion is people don't understand how Valve works as a company.

They're not heirachical in structure, they're a mishmash of peers. Thus anyone can contribute to projects as they see fit, and what little management there is comes from the input of others in the company.

This means that a concept artist might very well be making some art for HL3 in his spare time or whatever... It may be genuine Valve concept art but in no way reflects whether they're actually working on the game as a company.

That's why they'll "get around to it". They're a flexible community of highly skilled contributors, not really the standard model of company, where the higher ups say drop everything and start Half Life 3.... There may be a point when that happens, but we'll know when it does.

Some of the scenes depicted, particularly the crashed helicopter, are specific and cryptic, exactly like concept art would be of distinct scenes in an unreleased game.

And the same poses and angles drawn repeatedly with different clothing details is also consistent with concept art, and not fan-art.

Throw in that the setting being implied and shown is arctic in nature, and you have a direction that clearly falls in line with where the Half-Life story was heading at the end of Episode 2.

I did care about Half Life 2, somewhere in 2003.

Must have been the leak of that source engine that made the game, well, empty.

There was that triple FPS next gen that was simply amazing : there was stalker , half life 2 and doom 3. The only one that somewhat managed to deliver on it's promise was Doom 3. Maybe because it didn't seem so pretentious either.
