Post news Report RSS Action Half-Life 2 version 3 released!

Ever get the feeling when you thought something would never happen but then it does? No? Now you got it: v3 is finally here!

Posted by on

Be honest: after all of our previous posts you thought this day would never come. The release of Action Half-Life 2 version 3. Now the day has finally come and the Ministry of Action is almost as surprised as you are.

Let us take a stroll down memory lane together, all the way to 13 September 2011. This marks the day we asked you to post suggestions for v3 features and changes in the comments and on our forums. In the same post we also told you, that we did not want to keep v3 in development for another two years (the time it took us to follow up the initial release with v2). Later on, we published a post on 6 November 2011 announcing that v3 was now officially in production.

We had to walk quite a stretch on memory lane, so let us take the hyperloop pod back to today, 3 February 2017. The day AHL2v3 finally gets released. First of all, we should note that we definitely met our goal set in September 2011. We did not keep v3 in development for another 2 years. No, we kept it in development for 5 years and three months. And you say we never keep our promises. During all those years we have not been lazy, most of the time that is. The changelog included with the release is actually the one we kept internally and features 190 items. You can browse through the complete list any time you want, for this post the highlights will do:

  • Goal modes make a return
  • New stunt: walldive
  • New weapons: Colt SAA and Colt SAA Akimbo
  • Catch thrown knives with Kung Fu
  • 23 maps in the release, classics and new ones
  • Sound improvements
  • New player models
  • New animations
  • Balance tweaks
  • Linux client

The last five years have not only seen much development work, but also many, many hours of playtesting the game. To us, this game is pure fun – for newcomers and veterans alike – and we feel that v3 brings out the best in Action Half-Life to date.

Watch the trailer, grab your copy of AHL2v3 from the download links below the trailer and: enjoy the game!

Any bots?

You can add bots to the game, but believe me, they are of no use. So the honest answer is: no bots.

Well will you add them in a Future Update?

You'll get more Players if they can learn how to play the Game/Mod against Customizable Bots without Trial, Error, and Frustration of learning how to play against Skilled Players Online.

Usable bots were planned for v3 but ultimately got scrapped because of the time issues we already had. If we can get it on Greenlight/Steam Direct bots will definitely be back on the "to implement"-list.

That sounds like a Good Idea, but there is a lot of Copyrighted Stuff in this Mod.

Like in the Terminal Map there are Advertisements for Movies, TV Shows, and Games (Family Guy for example).

Thats the plan after some more tweaks and a few other things...

Also most of that is parody art so it isnt copyrighted. For anything that isnt that will be removed. Very easy to do. Id say thats the only map with anything close that could be considered in breach.

To add on this, for Greenlight, a couple of things are going to change in the Airport map to be more about Action History and less about outdated pop culture. Permission was granted by other artists as long as money was not exchanged.
