You Can Play The Entire Half-Life Series For Free Right Now!

Everything from the original Half-Life to Half-Life 2: Episode 2 is free-to-play

If you’ve never played Half-Life, then I’m sorry to tell you, but you’ve missed out on one of the greatest game series of all time. The good news is that, in anticipation of releasing Half-Life: Alyx, Valve has decided to offer the entire series for free on Steam until April 1st. So, if you’ve never played the game, now is the time to run through the story and get up to date. Here’s the full list of games available to play for free:

To fill you in a bit on the series, and why you don’t want to miss it, you’ll be put in the role of a scientist named Gordon Freeman. The story starts just minutes before a disaster takes place at the Black Mesa Research Facility, and this ultimately leads to monsters roaming hallways and claiming the bodies of other scientists in the facility. Your whole purpose is to escape the facility and figure out just what the hell is going on.

However, with this in mind, Half Lift: Alyx takes gameplay in a different direction as it’s a virtual-reality exclusive. The good news is that any VR headset that connects to PC will be able to play it, as it will be compatible with the Valve Index, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest (with link) Windows Mixed Reality Headsets, and HTC Vibe headsets. VR has made drastic improvments in recent years, but we’re still very curious to see how Half-Life: Alyx plays out in the VR world – it could certainly get interesting but it might be so far removed from the original gameplay that it fails to launch. You can pre-order Half-Life Alex on Steam for $54 right now.
