On November 19, 1998, the editor Sierra launched Half-Life, the first game developed by Valve Corporationwhich will revolutionize the genre of Doom-like. In addition to offering a real scenario rich in twists and turns, the title benefits from an almost sequence-shot staging, without cutscenes. A revolutionary game, which is forgotten.
At least that’s what it says Valveit must be said that the franchise was forgotten between 2007 (Half-Life: Episode Two) and 2019 (Half-Life: Alyx in VR), but Gabe Newell’s studio still celebrates the 25th anniversary of the first adventure of Gordon Freeman as it should be, including a very long documentary looking back on the development of Half-Life. A precious film for all fans, to discover above.
But there are many players who have not experienced Half-Life at the time, so to bring it back to light, Valve publishes a big update of its FPSfixing some bugs, adapting the interface for high definition screens, making it compatible with the Steam Deck and adding content, including multiplayer maps and the mini-campaign Uplink. All this is detailed on the game’s official website, which is given a facelift for the occasion, but above all, Valve announces that Half-Life is now free on Steam ! Yes, if you have never tried it FPSnow is the time to do it.
The fans are waiting now Half-Life 3, which was in design at one time, but hopes are low. You can find Half-Life: The FPS released at €24.90 on Amazon and the Fnac.
