Half-Life gets a new minor update fixing various elements

Valve’s updated the original Half-Life. But before you get your hype up with the number 3, we’re here to inform you it’s only a minor update for fixes

In a time where games are either unfinished or forgotten after release to work on their DLCs and perhaps sequels, it is amazing to see a game from almost a generation ago receive an update. Though it is quite common for Valve to update their games despite the age, such as their multiplayer game, Team Fortress 2. Still, a performance update seems bizarre for a game that can run easily on modern day systems. The update does the following fixes to the game. Don’t be surprised when devout fans of the Half-Life series would look deeper to see if there’s any confirmation of a sequel.
