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.

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!

You should really fix the Sprint mechanic, This is an essential part of the combat especially players of the hard difficulty

i didn't know i wasn't the only one having this issue! i thought it was intentional at first but the levels are definitely designed around having the sprint ability

I really loved this mod, it's been really fun to play and it has good pacing. I found all the easter eggs, my favorite being the one in the theater.

Thanks for creating The Citizen!

may not be amazing by todays standards, but for 2008 it's an extremely creative map pack. im not sure if i've seen anyone else really try stealth in source before.

it's because of the broken steampipe update
Apply the July 2010 patch, you need source sdk base 2006 installed on steam to play it
you can also add malortie's source sdk 2013 patch after all of that, if you want to play on the new engine.
that will require Source SDK Base 2013 singleplayer installed
