All Half-Life Games are Free Through March

All Half-Life Games are Free Through March

This means Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, and Half-Life 2: Episode Two can be accessed with no charge.

All of these games are excellent and if you have not played them before, I highly recommend you do so while they are free. Since they are all much older titles, it's unlikely your computer won't have the needed requirements to run them. Given how crowded the spring release bracket is, Valve needed something to remind us that Alyx was coming, and it succeeded.

So what exactly do you get for free? In preparation for the launch in March Valve has chose to treat gamers with free access to the entire Half-Life series on Steam.

As a result, all four main-series Half-Life games are now free to play, and if that weren't enough, they're joined in the bundle by Half-Life: Opposing Force, Half-Life: Blue Shift, and even Team Fortress Classic.

Now old and new gamers alike can relive all of that thanks to Valve's generous offer. The issue? Well, for one thing, there isn't any title out there called the Half-Life Collection.

As the reasoning states, Half-Life: Alyx is set before Half-Life 2 and stars Alyx, one of the main characters of the series. Valve are also throwing in ye olde expansion packs made by other studios, Half-Life: Opposing Force and Half-Life: Blue Shift, which tell events of the first game from new perspectives - maybe less relevant, but still nice if you want to get stuck in. That said, you'll still have slightly over a month to go through them at the very least.

Over a decade after the release of the last game, Half-Life: Alyx will be the the first game in the franchise to explore virtual reality.
