The Citizen is set parallel to the events of the original Half-Life 2. The player takes the role of an ordinary man, pushed over the edge by the oppressive regime controlling his life. His home trashed, his family dead, The Citizen leaves his apartment for the last time. He seeks new friends, and a way to help the human resistance to smash the iron grip of the Combine. What follows is a winding tale of betrayal, determination and grief. Many obstacles lie in his path which require a sleek combination of agility, stealth, intelligence, and sheer violence to overcome.

Originally released in November 2007 and re-released in February 2008, this singleplayer episode is still in the making. The Citizen Part 2 was released on December 24 2010.

Although The Citizen Part II follows the events of this mod, it will be a different download for which we want a different rating as we think it is a big improvement over our previous work. Don't forget to bookmark the new page!

For patch the steampipe error (materials/console/startup_loading.vtf) just go to
Steam/steamapps/sourcemods/thecitizen
and copy the maps folder.
After copy the maps folder to any sourcemods or Half-Life 2.
After go to the console of the mod or of Half-Life 2 and type : map <name of the map> and it should work.
Sorry for my bad english :(.
Have Fun! :D

Such a beautiful mod, thanks! I was especially impressed by the architecture. If the main mod designer is not an architect, he or she definitely got into the wrong profession. The only thing I didn't like about this mod is that it was too short. Getting ready to install and play part 2!

The main designer was on track to be an architect but switched it for a career in game art after a few years! :)
