On top of that, Valve added the following titles to the bundle: Half-Life: Opposing Force, Half-Life: Blue Shift, and Team Fortress Classic.

Do note that this is a free to play and not a free to own offer.

After a premature reveal, Valve confirmed that all of the major Half-Life games and add-ons are now available for free on Steam as part of a pre-Alyx promotion. The game will take place before the Half-Life 2 event with players in the role of Alyx Vance, a resistance fighter against the alien Empire Combine.

Although dated in terms of graphics, none of the previous Half-Life games have lost anything in terms of experience or gameplay mechanics. For reference, Half-life 2 released back in 2007, which ended in a massive emotional cliffhanger. Though there is no more news about it at the moment.

Improbably, a new Half-Life game is coming out in just a couple of months.

The report said police found a black backpack on the rear seat and "small amounts" of marijuana were found in three places. After he was released by the Chiefs, Hunt was accused of beating a man at a nightclub in Kansas City.

The Half-Life: Alyx story has been set between the first two titles so it makes good sense to play through these titles to familiarize yourself fully with the story.

"Right now we're primarily polishing and fixing bugs, which is where we'd hope to be at this point in the development cycle". The freebie is another canny PR move by Valve, which is aiming to make waves in the VR gaming arena, which seems to have plateaued after the initial rush of excitement during 2016/2017.

Regardless of whether you have touched the series since then, or they were after your time, and you never tried them, it is very useful to be able to catch everyone. It's also the first Half-Life game in over a decade.

We will be sure to update the story as more information is known.

It's been a while since Valve released a Half-Life game (or updated any of its non-competitive series, for that matter, but that's a complaint for another time).
