Action Half-Life 2 version 2 is out now. Grab your copy and get playing now!

Posted by [ladnet]brad on May 20th, 2011

On 1 May 2011 I posted a trailer and wrote that you should stay tuned for a release date. Well, the release happens kinda soonish - actually more like right now. We've been working hard over the last two years to make AHL2 the same fun as AHL always has been and this time the Ministry is proud to say that we can call this release polished. At this point a big thank you to everyone who participated in the open beta and provided feedback. You helped us find many of the 200+ bugs which have been fixed since v1 was released and provided valuable input on aspects of the game that needed to be changed.

The release version contains many animations and other things you have not seen during the open beta and also includes 9 official maps of which three are remakes of AHL classics. We also got a manual which not only tells you how to play AHL2 but also contains necessary information you need if you want to build maps or custom player models for AHL2. To celebrate the release we're proud to present an extra long release trailer, be sure to watch it fullscreen in the highest possible resolution.

Also, every person who is willing to play this in the evenings from a month strait, comment here, I'm going to to try my best to convince some friends to be regular players with me to keep the servers alive.

On that note, you guys should make some contact about Desura release, you guys certainly have a top quality mod here, and to be honest, Desura does expand the player base for some odd reason...

It's a unified installation interface. Makes it stupid easy to install mods; of course it increases the player base.

yeah, this needs an actual server to play on.. listen servers can only go so far. But this game is amazing!

Any chance of dedicated server files for those of us that are so inclined?

Make sure you installed the full version on
ministryofaction dot net web page.
Then installed the update. You may have only installed the update.

I just pulled my hair out for an hour before I figured out what I did wrong.
