Dota 2 Client leaked and datamined - Half-Life Ep 3 and more!

#1 Edited by agemyth (92 posts) -

The update to the following article hints that we should be careful about the Ep3 info for a moment, but the Dota 2 part of the leak is certainly real!

Spell icons:

Speech files:

Character backstories:

Caption... strings...?

Game models:


Lastly, here is the supposed HL2E3 leak:

"/src/game/server/ep3/weapon_icegun.cpp /src/game/server/ep3/weaponizer_concrete.cpp /src/game/server/ep3/weaponizer_liquid.cpp /src/game/server/ep3/weaponizer_metal.cpp /src/game/server/ep3/weapon_flamethrower.cpp" If it is real we could see an ice gun, flame thrower, and a... weaponizer in Episode 3. The big news here seems to be evidence of Dota 2's hats and Ep3 info. Shitty wizards...

Ohhh man, that sucks. Well, sort of. Nowhere near as sucky as the HL2 leak.
Weaponizing liquid/concrete/metal sounds pretty cool though.

Oh leaks... Valve loves their cataclysmic leaks.

At this point any scrap of episode 3 information is a godsend.

As much as I would like to believe Episode 3 exists, I would not be surprised if this was Valve's way of trolling everyone because they knew someone would find it.

Valve is laughing. This is exactly what they want.

Episode 3 is actually just a collection of TF2 hats.

Those are just leftover parts form the canceled Episode 3, they just didn't know where to put it to they swept them under DOTA 2.

When will people realize that Half Life 2 Episode 3 is not a real game.

After Portal 2, that absolutely sounds like some HL3 shit right there. Makes me think they looked at Bioshock a little bit as well. Changing the matter state or composition of surfaces? Yes please!
