Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, and find yourself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. You must rescue the world from the wrong you unleashed back at Black Mesa.

The original Half-Life sent a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title won more than 50 Game of the Year awards, was named "Best Game Ever" by PC Gamer, and launched a franchise which has since sold over 11 million units worldwide. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original Half-Life and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player’s presence affects everything around him or her, from the physical environment to the behaviors and even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

Technical note: most mods “for Half-Life 2” are actually cross-compatible with all of Valve's Source engine games. Check a mod’s profile for details on whether a specific game is needed.

About SourceForts 1.9.5 with 0 comments by AngleOnMyDangle on Oct 24th, 2014

SourceForts is a fast-paced capture-the-flag Source mod with a twist. Each match starts out with a build phase, where players can ready their defenses, barricade their flag, and create vantage points to fire from. Then, the combat phase begins, and the teams battle to capture the flag and score, with 5 unique classes to choose from.

We'd like to announce the active development of SourceForts 1.9.5.

Previously, SourceForts required Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, and lacked a Mac port. With 1.9.5, we've compiled on top the Source SDK Base 2007, and plan to release for both Windows and Mac. 1.9.5 will be backwards compatible with all maps from 1.9.0 and up, and will feature an updated SourceForts experience.

  • 1.9.5 will feature new and updated maps, bug fixes, updated graphics and new block skins.
  • Dedicated Server packages will be available for Windows and Linux.

Our team is currently searching for a mapper that is talented at creating realistic decay. If you are interested in lending a hand, please contact AngleOnMyDangle via our ModDB.

You're probably trying to download through Desura, right?
You can't. You need to buy it through Steam.

Good good, but then again my previous comment of the 6 year interval release of the Half-Life games, which I could but assume that it being near 6 years yet again, it nearing 2014 I would atleast have faith in the legitimacy of the link. But yeah its without a shadow of a doubt a fake, seasoned Valve employee.

Sadly it never ends for Gordon Freeman, he is gaming worlds Jack Bauer, consistently going from one bad day to the next. No sooner have you blown up the head of the Xenian Nihilanth and discussed career prospects with the mysterious G-Man than he tosses you in the mix again. Another train ride another mysterious situation leaving Gordon (and you the gamer) none the wiser, but thats what we like about the Half-life series and all it's canonical universe, Valve will always give you a Palm d'or plot…
