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!

Actually, is the same old problem that happened in 2005, but now I probably say about the sad news is that Playbus and Kasperg are not going to fix this cause is already beyond to fix it since this mod is using the old engine to play it. I don't know what to say, Now the only fan make Mod can play is the Episode Two Engine.

After several attempts to get it working, I finally got the patch to work and people talked to me and I could play the game fine.


When I get on the train that G-Man is at and he says, "You've done a great deal in a small time span..." and teleports, he teleports me falling out of the map!! And when I try to noclip to one of the areas I get sent to the noclip jail, and THEN when I try to use the teleport it won't take me anywhere!! WTF

What did you do to finally get the patch to work, Kaweebo?

There are many, many people, including myself, who cannot play this mod because the 'patch' does not work- NPC's still do not speak to you. think we have installed the patch in the correct folder- steam/steamapps/sourcemods/The citizen- but with no effect.
Have deleted and reinstalled the mod many times, as well as the patch itself. Have re-booted the pc after each installation.

What exactly is wrong here?
