Folks anticipating Valve's trio of upcoming game releases—Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2, and Portal—can now pre-order the Orange Box package on Steam. The Orange Box contains the aforementioned titles plus Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One, and it will cost $49.95 at launch. However, users who pre-order on Steam get a 10% discount and only have to cough up $44.95.
That's not all, though. Shacknews says Valve intends to kick off public beta testing of its team-based multiplayer game, Team Fortress 2, on September 17 to those who pre-order the Orange Box. The full game along with the rest of the Orange Box is scheduled to come out on October 9.
