Follow Freeman is an innovative co-op mod for Half-Life 2.

We are gearing up now for the imminent release of Follow Freeman beta 3. After many months of hard work and collaboration with many other Half Life 2 mod teams and the wonderful help we have received from our community of Follow Freeman testers and fans who have all contributed in the true spirit of cooperation to the monumental amount of maps and features supported by Follow Freeman Beta 3 - thank you. There so much stuff that we can’t fit it all in so here is a brief summary.

Half Life 2 single player campaign:

Community mods converted for Follow Freeman Co-op:
Rock 24
The Island
Combine Destiny
Causality Effect
Mistake of Pythagorus
City Rebellion
: the co-op remix
Riot Act
Coastline to Atmosphere

Antlion Troopers

Over 140 community maps from 15 separate developers and mod teams all collaborating in a shared love of creativity, cooperation and game-play

10 battle-zone maps including classic counterstrike source maps converted for PVPVE game-play, off road racing in the Jeep Rally, and the dreaded sequel to bz_trainstation (the leet coop map that pushes player co-operation to the limit) yes its bz_trainstation_2 :P

As well as the maps we have some lovely new features.

World Co-op High Scores Website:
At the end of each adventure the teams co-operative score and the stats of each player are sent to our website.

In game economy system:
Players earn money from kills and co-operation and can then spend it in Vorti-Guns.

Between missions players can use the in game shop (in the ready-room) to buy and sell a selection of 35 unique weapons including the counterstrike weapons, and stock up on ammo and equipment for the next mission. The shop can be opened and closed in-game in the admin control area so Half Life 2 purists can still play with the original weapons only.

Inventory multiplayer save and restore:
Normally in multiplayer games players do not keep their weapon from one map to the next but Follow Freeman now saves your weapons and keeps your inventory on the server from one mission to the next.
Co-op friendly inventory:
the weapon selection system has been redesigned so players can share all weapons and ammo types. Enabling a greater level of team work and tactics
Right now we are checking in content for the next release sometime in January and as soon as the beta testers are happy we will compile the linux version and go for the public release. If you cant wait and want to play some sweet smooth coop asap then you are welcome to join our friendly community of beta testers you can join here.

For more information on the game play features see our public forums where I will be posting more development reports showing the features and how they work in greater detail over the coming weeks.

For general info about Follow Freeman you can see our online manual our and content guide at

If your part of the half life community and you want to get involved in then don’t hesitate to contact us, we are a community driven team and all gamers and developers are welcome.

It's been a while since we posted news last time. It's actually been over 8 months . We know that people out there maybe have been thinking that it were dead, but we are happy to tell you, that a beta 3.0 is around the corner. This is approx. 3-4 weeks. Why has it been taking so long!? We have been busy on our other projects, we had some private stuff to take care of - we did not really have the time. I would like to thank you all for waiting. I wanted to update this profile page at a time the MD team could say we are really developing FF and right now.....we are! We have a new member of the MD team his name is vRod and he will be helping us with mapping and a few other things. Expect to see some entries here from him soon! I always try to add in some media with each news post so today I have some pictures of Vorti-guns I would like to share with you. Hope you enjoy them and stay tuned in to Follow Freeman for more updates!

I used to beta test this mod. One day the lead developer just disappeared and refused to post anything about this mod. Someone told me he had built a house and it came crashing down, I know nothing more about it. Seems the lead dev just stopped caring like most modders do. Go try out Obisidan Conflict, all of these mods can be played co-operatively in that mod.

It was my favorite mod. I have so much memories about it! It is sad that it was never developed further.

I presume the founder was X-MING-X?
