Our good Russian friend Odddoc just released another Half-Life 2: Episode 2 beta map! It's called canyon_test.vmf it's from June 2006.

The map is a very early version of the Antlion Guardian battle map in the chapter "Freeman Pointifex", for those interested.

Download it here!

It's an uncompiled VMF, so you'll want to talk to somebody who knows Hammer to compile it to work in-game.
