Valve has marked Half-Life’s 25th anniversary with several promotions and content drops, including an extensive new update for the original game.
Valve is also marking the occasion by making Half-Life free-to-keep for anyone adding it to their Steam library this weekend, and putting the rest of the games in the franchise on discount.
Finally, Valve has released an hour-long documentary – made in partnership with Secret Tape – in which the original development team share their memories of creating Valve’s first game.
The last Half-Life game, VR title Half-Life Alyx, was released in 2020.
According to a report published in late 2021, Half-Life 3 was not in active development at the time, and Valve was instead focusing on Steam Deck friendly titles.
