Pre-Order 'The Orange Box' At GameStop, Get 10% Off And 'TF 2' Beta Access

Earlier this month, people who pre-ordered The Orange Box through Steam received access to the Team Fortress 2 beta. Valve is now offering people who pre-order the game through GameStop (before Oct. 10th) a 10% discount off the regular price and access to the beta version of Team Fortress 2.

The Orange Box features three highly-awaited new games by Valve: Half-LifeĀ® 2: Episode Two, the second installment in the Half-Life 2 episodic trilogy; Team Fortress 2, the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map; and Portal, the game that blends puzzles, first person action, and adventure gaming to produce an experience like no other.

To bring gamers up to date with the Half-Life 2 universe, The Orange Box also includes Half-Life 2, the best-selling and highest-rated action game series of all time, and the episodic debut Half-LifeĀ® 2: Episode One-together, more than 30 hours of award-winning gameplay. Customers who already own these titles will have the ability to conveniently "gift" them to a friend upon official release of The Orange Box.

Starting immediately, those who pre-purchase The Orange Box for PC at any GameStop retail store in the US will receive a key-code and instructions to download and activate the beta release of Team Fortress 2 from Steam. The beta will conclude with the release of The Orange Box on October 10th. This year's most anticipated online action game, Team Fortress 2 delivers new game types, a signature art style powered by Valve's next generation animation technology, persistent player statistics, and more.

The Orange Box will have a suggested retail price of $49.95 on the PC and $59.95 on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

The 10% pre-purchase discount also applies to all three versions at GameStop and participating retail outlets.
