Valve's Gabe Newell has finally stumped up the firm's estaimted release date for Half Life 2: Aftermath.

According to reports, the date is April 24, a Monday. This will be bad news for anyone planning to get any work done for the rest of the week.

The game will cost a thoroughly reasonable $19.99, through Valve's Steam game delivery service. This equates to just over a tenner in real money. Could this be the best-value expansion pack of all time? The game will also hit retail through Valve's new publishing partner, EA. Expect it to hit English physical shelves on the following Friday.

Having sat and played HL2 non-stop upon its release at the end of 2004, we're absolutely dying to get our hands on this new update. The game will allegedly carry on from the cliff-hanger ending of the main title, with Gordon being pulled out of a dangerous situation by G-man, as Alyx remained in mortal peril. She will be joining Gordon for a romp through the expansion, so we presume she doesn't cop it.
