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.

From now on, all sequel status, updates, images etc will appear HERE
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!

I like so much this mod. It is very creative and addresses situations that were not explored in the original game. It also has a very refined humor.

The file is compressed with WinRAR, so you need WinRAR to open it.

You can get a trial version of WinRAR here:

The trial version is fully functional for 30 days and so it will allow you to install the mod without obstacle.

Further instructions for installing the mod are included in a text file inside the download.
