Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, and Half-Life 2: Episode 2—all for free!

It’s been over a decade since Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was released. And now that Valve is making a return to the title with Half-Life: Alyx, it’s the perfect time to catch up or refresh on the series. But then you have to consider if you’re gonna pay for your bills or buy these games all for the love gaming? Well, you don’t have to worry anymore because we just received good news for y’all! This FPS will be free-to-play for good a period on Steam!

Half-Life: Alyx

This VR game will be a prequel to Half-Life 2 and the other episodes, sharing the same characters and important story elements. According to Valve, the best way to enjoy The Half-Life: Alyx is to go through the games one by one, highlighting especially Half-Life 2.

Considering that many years have already passed since the last game was published, there’s nothing to lose in reliving the title if you’re one of the many OG players. But if you’re all new to this, it’s a must–no buts!

And if you have some questions, make sure you head on to Reddit and join Valve’s AMA tomorrow at 9 am (Pacific Time).


All of the Half-Life games are free-to-play until March or when Half-Life: Alyx is released. So what are waiting for?! You have A LOT of catching up to do.
