With all the recent rumours floating around about Half-Life 3, it is clearly remarkable how the franchise started and become the most successful and anticipated one among gamers. The original Half-Life used Quake 2 Engine back in the day. We bring you three trailers to relive those moments.
First Half-Life trailer:
Second trailer is from E3 1998:
Third one is a montage by Gamespot after the game was released:
Later on Black Mesa Source, a dedicated fan community, Half-Life was brought back on Source’s new engine. The work is still in progress and many welcomed this move by the community
After the success of Half-Life came Half-Life 2 which proved both commercial and critical success among gamers. Half-Life 2 resumes and expands upon the life of Dr. Freeman who was put into stasis at the end of Half-Life by an entity known only as the G-man. Half-Life 2 received two sequels in episodic form named; Half-Life 2: Episode 1 and Half-Life 2: Episode 2. With each episode adding more to the franchise and story and bringing new mysteries.

Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was so far the last addition by Valve to the Half-Life series which was released way back in 2007. HL2:EP2 leaves the game at a cliffhanger which in turn leaves the gamers wanting for more. Before today we heard no new solid news or rumour about Half-Life 3 and the franchise was presumed dead by gamers whom showed their disappointment for being left without a closure and so many unanswered questions.
