HL2 Content

Am I able to use HL2 content if I have the pre-load of the game complete, however it;s not purchased? I assume like other games the purchase just allows the use of online play on hl2.

tl;dr

I want to use aurora cannon, can I do so with hl2 pre-load but not purchase? Thanks.

You get HL2 content (except for maps and choreography and such) with every game. What you are thinking of is EP2 content. You need to buy EP2 to get its content.
