Valve earlier today has sent out a press release announcing plans to deliver Half-Life 2: Lost Coast and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch to all owners of ATI Radeon graphics cards.
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. And, as recently announced by AMD, customers who purchase the new ATI RadeonT HD 2900 XT will also receive, upon release via Steam, the highly anticipated trio of new games coming from Valve: Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Half-Life 2: Episode Two. Some conditions apply. Customers will be required to download and install the Steam software, and will require an Internet connection.
