Half-Life 3

Tired of waiting for Half-Life 3? Yeah me too, it’s been so long and so joked about, I honestly have given up caring if it gets a sequel or not. I don’t think it would ever live up to people’s expectations even if it did. I’m sure that’s true for most people now too, we’ve moved on in the gaming world. However, that doesn’t mean everyone has given up. Some people just decide to make their own damn game instead.

Fan Made Demo
Danys Almaral has released a demo for his own Half-Life 3. He’s created it using Unreal Engine 4, and by using the free assets from the Unreal Engine Marketplace. The end result is far better than you would expect though. It looks pretty fantastic in the video he’s released. Not only that but you can download and play it yourself too!

“I started as a level design test with Unreal Engine 4. It was looking nice, I told on twitter I was making Half Life 3 because I can’t wait for valve. It went almost viral. Hope people understand is a joke, a single person can’t make that huge project. That deserve a bigger and serious team. You can download and play the level on Windows, it just walk around.

Future of this demo:

I’ll try to add more sounds and interactivity, maybe some weapons. I was thinking about designing a relaxing and quiet waiting place. So you can go there and fee like you are Gordon Freeman waiting for Half Life 3.”


But… I Want More!!!
Unfortunately, it’s just that, a demo. It’s not really planned to turn it into a full game. Of course, if he did, the lawyers would be smashing his door down any time now.
Trailer


Download
Those eager to try the demo should know it’s presented as is, so could have bugs and issues. However, you can download the file here. Already played it? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!

wait. WAIT, WHAT... Half life?
THE Half life?
the one from 1998???

Maybe if Valve spent just a LITTLE less time on shitty fucking trading cards, and updates for games that worked fine 21 fucking years ago they could make a decent game.
If they're dead set on wasting fucking time and effort, why not finish and release the Dreamcast HL??

Still waiting for my Red Box... Half life 3, Portal 3, Left 4 Dead 3, Team fortress 3 and DOTA 3.
Maybe when every gamer in the world is using epic game launcher, they'll make a new game again...

Update for a 21 year old fucking game... FUCKING REALLY....

Left 4 Dead 3 will go battle royale, Team Fortress 3 will be auto chess, and Half Life 3 is a VR visual novel

I'm hoping for the day Valve HAS to actually make games to survive again... Half Life 3 the VR visual Novel would LEGITIMATELY be the best thing Valve has made in a decade...
SERIOUSLY, look it up... Valve has SUCKED TOTAL FUCKING ASS FOR AT LEAST EIGHT YEARS!!!! (Portal 2 was 2011) Left 4 Dead 2 was 2009...

I remember back in the day we all gave Valve shit for making L4D in 2008 and making L4D2 in 2009...
They took that feedback of fans saying WE DON'T WANT A NEW GAME EVERY YEAR! and stopped making any games at all FOR A FUCKING DECADE!!!!
They trolled us good...
OK.. YOU SAY WE MAKE SEQUELS TOO FAST? OK SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND!!! 2004 to 2019... NO FUCKING SEQUEL!!!

FUCK YOU GAMERS!!!

just seen it on the RWS FB, I'm gonna be all over this, love me some Postal & RWS is still disowning that other game with the statement
'No third game is known to exist.'
If only that were the case, I'll just read 4 as 3 I think & ignore that other one. Not too sure about the Dude now sounding like Duke though
