Yesterday, Valve’s first video game and one of the most iconic games of all time, Half-Life, just celebrated its 25th anniversary since it was released on 19 November 1998.

To celebrate this occasion, Valve released a feature-rich “25th anniversary update” for the game on Steam, and they have made the title free to claim until 2 am on 21 November 2023. Once you claim the game, it will be yours forever.

The update page from Valve outlines numerous new and modernised features introduced to the timeless first-person shooter.

The update includes updated graphics settings, including lighting fixes and an actual widescreen field of view, controller and Steam Networking support, Steam Deck support, plus four new multiplayer maps, and Valve also restored some cut content.

They even created a hour-long documentary about the game and a special site dedicated to showcase all the updates in detail.

Valve also declares the anniversary edition of Half-Life as the definitive version, and it will be the one receiving ongoing support.

Although the remastered 2004 version, Half-Life: Source, will still be accessible, Valve encourages new Half-Life players to opt for the anniversary version instead.
