The Half-Life 25th Anniversary Update
Half-Life is back and better than ever. Alongside interviews with the original developers, the game is now available with the Uplink mini-campaign, Steam Deck support, updated graphics settings, new multiplayer maps, and some bonus restored goodies.
Two decades of raising the bar
The Half-Life saga is the story of Gordon Freeman, a physicist who finds himself at the center of resistance to an alien invasion that threatens the future of humanity. From Valve's 1998 debut game onward, the series has been at the forefront of immersive action and storytelling. In March 2020, that legacy continues as Half-Life: Alyx pushes VR to new dimensions.
A physics experiment gone wrong leads to unforeseen consequences. As Dr. Gordon Freeman, battle alien intruders in the immersive and heart-pounding action-adventure story that set the stage for a generation of first-person shooters.
The suspense and challenge of Half-Life reaches unprecedented levels of realism and responsiveness. In the dystopic City 17, repel the extradimensional Combine as you solve puzzles, defeat enemies, and explore a beautifully-realized world.
Half-Life 2: Episode 1
Following the events of Half-Life 2, Gordon Freeman faces a new threat that could destroy City 17. Alongside companion Alyx Vance—powered by innovative new AI capabilities—intercept the Combine's plans and take the fight right to their door.
