Half Life 2 “Officially” Gold

After months and months and even more months of speculation, Vivendi has finally announced that Half-Life 2 has gone gold and will be on shelves worldwide on the 16th of November 2004!

That’s right! VU Games announced that it will ship localized versions of Half-Life 2 simultaneously around the world. English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, traditional and simplified Chinese, Korean, Thai, and Japanese versions of the hotly anticipated first-person shooter will all ship on the same day!

Our friends in the US will have the option to get the “Half-Life 2 Collector’s Edition“, which includes Half-Life 2 in DVD-ROM format, Counter-Strike Source, Half-Life Source, a free limited edition T-shirt, and a Half-Life 2 strategy guide from Prima. It is not known if the same option will be available to us Europeans, lets hope we get something special to!
