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!

Wow, this mod is amazing.

Story fits perfectly in HL2 and the quality of the levels and the voice acting is outstanding. Great work!

There are 16 new maps - but in case you were thinking this was a multiplayer mod - it isn't. Singleplayer only.

No new weapons at the minute. There might be in the next release - but that isn't a promise ;)
