Customers who purchase the new ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT will also receive, upon release via Steam, Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Half-Life 2: Episode Two
Valve sent out a press release announcing its plans to deliver free games to all owners of ATI Radeon graphics cards via Steam. Effective immediately, all owners of ATI Radeon graphics cards may receive a free copy of Half-Life 2: Lost Coast and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch via Steam. Steam will automatically confirm the presence of ATI Radeon hardware and then enable immediate access to full versions of the games free of charge. For added convenience to new purchasers of ATI Radeon products, Steam will be included in all ATI Catalyst Software and Driver packages through early 2008. Some conditions apply - customers will be required to download and install the Steam software, and will require an Internet connection.
