German Xbox site Xbox4u has posted scans from an upcoming magazine article on Half Life 2. They also had this to say:
Developer has valve confirmed that helped Life on the E3 of this year for the first time the public one presents, already hardly geistert a first screen SHOT by the net, with which it acts obviously around a Scan out of a magazine. Numerous magazines had shifted their publication date, in order to be able to report in time for running out the NDAs (secrecy contract) on 28 April on the coming 3D-Shooter-Hoffnung.
Now one seems to have arrived already prematurely this article over the Shooter not confirmed yet for the Xbox into the hands of an anonymous scanner, which passed on screen SHOT from it the Dutch Website gamer.nl. (Babelfish Translation)
Planet Half-Life has also added a new list of rumours to their site;
-Half-Life 2 is scheduled for a September 30th release.
-Yes, you're still Gordon Freeman, and yes, the story assumes you went to work for the G-Man.
-Half-Life 2 takes place in a European city called "City 17."
-Headcrabs will be back! Although some of the Xen aliens will be your friends?
-Barney is back. And so is Half-Life's original writer, Marc Laidlaw.
-While the new engine has all sorts of fancy features, it's still designed to work on lower-end machines. Apparently a 700mhz processor and a video card capable of running DX6 is enough, although a 2ghz with a GeForce4 is recommended.
-The girl in the promo art is named Alyx, a daughter of a scientist who factors into the story somehow. She's not playable.
-Scripted Sequences will be more interactive.
-Half-Life 3 is planned, so expect another cliffhanger ending.
While the game is due for release on the PC, many rumours have been circulating about the possibility of Half Life 2 releasing on the Xbox.
PALGN will have more news as it breaks.
