Valve Faces Its Biggest Leak Ever; Asset Repositories of Half-Life 2, Portal, Team Fortress 2, and More Surface Online


Sunday wasn’t quite pleasant for the one and only Valve Corporation, as several files of its games leaked online.

Yes, we are talking about the entire Valve asset repository, which showed up out of the blue on the internet, featuring files from many of its popular games. This includes Team Fortress 2, Portal, Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source, Half Life 2: Episodes 1 & 2, and Half-Life 2 multiplayer.

The leaks have stemmed from Discord, where leaker LeakerWanderer claimed that they have had access to the files since 2016, when some of Valve’s asset repositories first surfaced online. Back then, only a portion of it came out. However, LeakerWanderer has now shed light on all asset repositories that Valve currently has.

The standout title from the recently leaked files is Valve’s hit multiplayer shooter, Team Fortress 2. While the 2007 title hasn’t received a content update in ages, the new leaks feature up to 61GB of files (via PC Gamer), which includes cosmetics, maps and other assets that players have never seen before. The leak gives an idea on some of the content that was planned for the game by Valve, but never materialised.

With these many files surfacing online, modders of the title have hit a gold mine, as they might now be looking to complete the vision that several developers at Valve had for Team Fortress 2. Thanks to the game’s modding support, the leak has essentially become a DLC for players, who are looking to reinvent the Team Fortress 2 experience.

At the moment, Valve hasn’t responded to these assets surfacing online. However, we should be hearing from the popular developers soon.
