Set in both the heart and outside of City 17, "The Citizen Returns" contains the final chapters of our citizen's story, as well as an updated version of Part II.

The Combine forces decide to capture him and try to use his public repentance and execution as a means to appease the emergent rebellion. The Citizens of City 17 however have other ideas in mind. Larry is now a symbol for the rebellion and a key asset in a bigger plot to deal a fatal blow to the Combine and its grip on humankind...

The Citizen story is finally complete! This mod replaces The Citizen Part II as the sequel to 2008's The Citizen mod, and includes the maps of Part II...

"The Citizen Returns" is not showing up in my games library.


Scratch that, it is now - took ages to appear despite restarting steam several times.

This mod definitely needs greenlight, and part one added would also be awesome!!!

Does the updated version of part 2 also include part 1, just like the original part 2?

The Citizen Part II didn't include the maps from The Citizen (except a little chunk of map in the intro).

The Citizen Returns begins exactly where The Citizen Part II began. That is, after the train incident that ended The Citizen.

I played through this mod a while ago, and overall, I think it's a great mod and hope more people get to play it.

But I've heard that this mod has 2 endings. I've only got the ending where the citizen is listening to a broadcast about the Citadel/Uprising of City 17; and the citizen is on a beach with the Brother, the Vortigaunt and Sarah.

Can someone please tell me how to get the other ending/s, if it exists at all?

Yes. Just die with Larry. Don't go with the girl, stay in the generator room and wait for the timer to go out

Press crouch or jump when you're in the vent. One of them should work.
