Turtle Rock Studios is working on a new game powered by Half-Life 2's Source engine.
You might not think about team-based online multiplayer going hand-in-hand with "survival horror" games--games like the Resident Evil series that give you only limited resources while pitting you against legions of horrible monsters, often in cramped confines.
