Own a Radeon card? Get free HL2 games.

atilogoIf you like free things and own an ATI Radeon graphics card, then today is your lucky day. Valve Software announced that any player who owns an ATI Radeon graphics card will receive both Half-Life 2: Deathmatch and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast for free.

While Lost Coast has been free since its release, Deathmatch required at least ownership of Half-Life 2 or one of its various bundles. So head on over to this link , it’ll detect if you own a Radeon card or either game, then you’ll be prompted to download which ever you need. Pretty simple.

In addition, Steam will be included in all future ATI Catalyst Software and Driver packages through some of 2008. Steam, itself, is a pretty small download, so current Steam owners should easily bypass the bundle if necessary. Also for any buyers of the new ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT, you’ll receive Team Fortress 2, Portal and Half-Life 2: Episode Two upon their release for free.

It must be good to have some juicy partnerships.

Getting free stuff is always nice, but since I already own the two games and have a Radeon card, I missed out. Nonetheless, it’s a good deal. Also this promotion may give Deathmatch some renewed life with the influx of new players.
