The release packs together five games. The first three titles are all Gordon Freeman-related. The selection start off with Half-Life 2 and continues with the two expansions of the game, Half-Life 2: Episode One and Half-Life 2: Episode Two.

The offer might be a problem for most HL2 fans, which already have purchased both the original game and the first episode. In such cases, Valve decided that buyers can "gift" the games to a friend from within Steam

Next on the Orange Box list is Team Fortress 2, a multiplayer team-based warfare simulation game and Portal, a mixture of puzzles, first person action, and adventure.

The Orange Box can be downloaded from Valve’s Steam service or purchased from retailers. Its price tag reads a $49.95 for the PC version and $59.95 for the Xbox 360 one.
