Half-Life Receives First Patch in Years
The small update fixes a couple of issues.
Out of nowhere, Valve Software has released a new patch for Half-Life, its acclaimed first person shooter, on Steam. Considering the game was released in 1998, to see it receive any kind of update is pretty suspicious.
As such, the patch relies on fixing issues with the console and other things which modders may need. When you consider that the original game isn’t really receiving any kind of mods these days, it’s pretty odd as a whole. Nonetheless, crashes that occur when setting custom decals or when quickly changing weapons that are consumable have been resolved among other issues. Check out the patch notes below for yourself.
With all the talk of Half-Life 3 and how it’s never, ever going to happen (especially with the number of writers who have departed the company in recent years), what are your thoughts on this patch? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more information.
