  Sales of Episode One are Number One with a Bullet - Game News

Valve®, developer of the blockbuster series Half-Life® and Counter-Strike™, announced Half-Life® 2: Episode One debuted at #1 on retail PC game charts across Europe, including the dominate markets of Germany, UK and France.

Episode One, released at retail outlets and via Steam® on June 1st, is the first in a trilogy of episodes that will conclude by Christmas of 2007.

"After spending six years creating Half-Life 2, we decided to build HL2's successor as a trilogy of episodes," said Gabe Newell, Valve's president and co-founder. "This has allowed us take greater risks in gameplay, move the technology forward faster, and let people know what happened when the Citadel blew up in 18 months, rather than asking them to wait 6 years."

Half-Life 2: Episode One advances the 15-million unit selling franchise and launches a new, three-part series that leads far beyond City 17. Half-Life 2: Episode One does not require Half-Life 2 to play, and is available via Steam and at retail stores around the world.

In addition to the new single player experience, two multiplayer games and a designers' Commentary Mode are also included. And those who purchase Episode One will have free access via Steam (steamgames.com) to Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, the interactive technology demo that introduces High Dynamic Range lighting to the Source™ Engine, Valve's award-winning game technology.

Its a throwback to the billboard charts in america - If a single went in at number 1 it was said to be with a bullet - eg shot down all its rivals.

Well Episode One sure deserves it, who cares if it's only a short episode, every minute is pure gaming bliss. If any of you don't have it yet, get it.

Can anyone tell me roughly how big it is? How many maps? Everything I read, it doesn't say, I expect it to be fairly small, probably less than half the HL2 experience, is that fair to say?

I love episode 1 no matter what anyone says. The thing i hated about HL2 is that you get 2 minutes with Alyx and Barney and the next thing you know it's 1 hour in darkness by yourself. Although i think Barney should have a bigger part

Yes it is fair to say it's less than half of the HL2 experience, but please don't let that deter you from playing it, every second of it is amazing.

Think of 1/3 of HL2, with 3 times the detail, and awesomness.
