Now here is a big surprise. Valve has released a new official patch for the first Half-Life game. The last time Valve updated Half-Life – with a beta patch – was back in 2013 and after almost four whole years, the team released a new update for its public release.
From the looks of it, this is a minor update that addresses some crashes and bugs. Still, it really surprised us to see an update for this really old title. And no, this does not mean that Half-Life 3 is under development.
This patch will be auto-downloaded from Steam, and below you can find its complete changelog.
