Alot of people are talking about this it is a free gmae that ships with Episode 2.
Second bombshell: Gabe announced that all versions of Half-Life 2 Episode 2 will ship with a brand new single player game entitled "Portals". Portals is a source based puzzle game, that uses the gravity gun to create "Prey" like portals. A video was shown of Portals (in the vein of a training video for someone joining a powerful corporation in the HL2 universe) explaining the game to the enthralled crowd. The video shows a diagram and explains that as an employee of this company, you may have to find the emergency exit to a certain room. However, there are often obstacles in your way, like a gaping chasm. No problem, because all you need to use is your Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device to create dimensional doorways that let you mess with reality. For example, if there

Half-Life 2: Episode Two and its three-game entourage - on three platforms - has slipped until Q1 2007. February, we're told. But if you ever really expected to play it this year you were probably kidding yourself anyway
