Valve’s Half-Life Series Free to Play for a Limited Time

Have you been waiting impatiently to get your hands on Half-Life: Alyx but need some time to kill between now and when it’s released? Have you been meaning to play the Half-Life series but just couldn’t get around to it? Are you still holding on to that slither of hope of Half-Life 3 coming out someday?

Well, Valve has a solution to that! (at least with waiting for Half-Life: Alyx.)

In anticipation of Valve’s latest entry in the Half-Life series, the VR exclusive first-person shooter Half-Life: Alyx, Steam users will be able to play the entire Half-Life series for free from Jan. 21st until Half-Life: Alyx is released.

Half-Life: Alyx takes place between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2 and players will take control of Alyx Vance, the deuteragonist of Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode 1 & 2.

While there isn’t a specific release date for the game, Half-Life: Alyx is scheduled to be released sometime in March.

With about 2 months until its intended release, gamers will have a little while to relive (or experience for the first time) the eerily captivating world of Half-Life for free in all its Headcrab guts and glory.
