Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people, people he cares about, are counting on him.
The main hero (Jack Whyton) is a prisoner, who escaped from prison together with others. But on the second day their hideout was already attacked by cops. Jack managed to escape from the police. But he didn’t know that he is the subject of a very dangerous experiment and that some kind of Xen creature was implanted into his body. If a human will be able to control it then he would be gifted with special abilities, if not – then he’ll turn into a monster… The game takes place in City 14 approximately the same time as when the original HL2 did. City 14 is part of a network of four cities connected together, which create an industrial sector of the combine. The cities are City 13, City 14, City 16 and City 17. Recently the entrance to City 16 was closed because the city itself became very dangerous. Until that time it was isolated from other cities, but after the incident at the combine base in City 13 the combine forcefields were disabled.
