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!

Probaly yes. Oh btw make sure you search in the "C" section from the library. Even though the mod is called "THE Citizen" and steam sorts your games in alphabetical order, it will appear in the C section. Try searching for it too, if you have a lot of games.

I loved it! I'll admit, the voice acting needed a little work, but other than that, it was great! I particularly loved the disguises, and the Advisor scenes terrifiered me. great work!

It was fun, but I had to use "notarget" to get out of the apartments in the beginning since the Overwatch soldier will see you know matter what you do to stay out of his vision. Technically, he shouldn't have been able to see me at all since I was crouched down, moving against the wall on the walkway, and he was turned sideways below me. Wearing a gas mask like they do would kill all peripheral vision. Also, getting out of the train station was impossible without activating the "God" mode due to the extreme amount of Manhacks you have to face. That was ridiculous. Way, way too many in there. The voice acting is subpar as well. Seems like no one involved was giving it their all emotion wise, especially the squad leader in the end. His monotone, emotionally voice wouldn't inspire any rebel to take up arms. I'm not an actor, but jeez, I could have done a better job.
