Half-Life Free to Own on Steam Until Next Week

Valve has announced that their classic sci-fi FPS Half-Life is free to own on Steam until November 20, 2023, at 1 PM ET. Additionally, the game’s soundtrack is also free to own from the same platform.

Half-Life follows protagonist Gordon Freeman, aiming to escape the Black Mesa Research Facility after a scientific experiment causes aliens to run amok. The game was beloved for its storytelling and inventive gameplay during its initial launch in 1998.

Puzzle progression was also a prominent facet of the experience, alongside some boss battles that made the title stand out from its contemporaries. Half-Life is well known for its modding scene and consistent yearning for a third mainline entry.

The Half-Life 2 Community-Made Remaster, Half-Life 2 RTX, An RTX Remix Project, was announced earlier this year.

Average world textures will have 8x the textures, “and assets like the suit feature 20X the geometric detail of the original game.” Further, there are highly realistic shadows that up the atmosphere considerably.
