Half Life 2, a popular first-person-shooter game made by Valve, has migrated from beta to stable release on Steam for Linux.
A Linux beta of the game has been available since May.
Half Life 2 is not alone in gaining stable status. Both episodes 1 and 2 of the sequel, as well as spin-off mini-game Half Life 2: Lost Coast also see their beta tags shaken off.
Having never played Half Life 2 (or any of its sequels) I can’t say whether it’s worth buying or not. It certainly seems popular with gamers on all platforms, and the enthusiasm for its Linux beta was intense.
Below you’ll find the trailer. If it tempts you, it’s available to buy on Steam for $9.99/£6.99.
