Predecessor Half-Life 2: Frozen End
Half-Life 3 is an upcoming sequel to the Half-Life Series it is set approximately 45 days after Half-Life 2: Frozen End and is the final Entry in the franchise. The game once again has the player control Gordon Freeman whose name has since become known as the Saviour of Humanity due to him eliminating the threat of the Combine from Earth once and for all. However it appears as though the Combine are planning to launch a final last ditch effort to enslave the human race. However Gordon Freeman is believed to be dead and where the future lies for humanity could be jeopardized.


Gordon Freeman wakes up to find himself inside a small building finding his HEV-Suit has been removed as well as his glasses missing (likely due to being broken) he struggles to get up out of the bed he's in only to stumble onto the floor. A woman enters the building helping Freeman back up and tries to speak with him although speaks Russian and thus Freeman can't understand her, Freeman looks around and sees a piece of paper and a pencil on the table next to his bed and attempts to draw a picture of glasses, the woman pauses watching what Freeman draws and understanding his request she leaves the building. As she exits, Freeman hears a howling wind coming from outside signifying that he's still far north and likely in some sort of snowstorm.

The woman shortly returns with a pair of glasses and a man, the woman hands Freeman the glasses allowing him to see clearly. Freeman looks up to see who the man is and is somewhat startled to see G-Man standing before him. G-Man in Russian dismisses and thanks the woman for tending to Freeman before sitting down next to Gordon to talk.


The game functions identically to previous games the player controls Gordon Freeman from a first person perspective using various weapons to defeat enemies in a 3D First-Person Shooter Environment along with using jumping and sprinting techniques to traverse platforming sections. In addition the player can pick up small objects (larger objects as well with the Improved HEV-Suit) to solve a variety of Physics Puzzles including Weight Puzzles, Stacking, Manipulating Gravity and changing State of Matter.

The player is able to use a variety of weapons for combat as mentioned before, while most weapons remain in the previous style of older games being accessed through sub-menus, explosives and thrown items are now thrown with the Alt-Fire Attack although holding this Button/Key will do other things with certain weapons such as holding one's breath with the Sniper Rifle.

Chapter Synopsis

Chapter 1: Return of The Saviour

Chapter 2: 45 Days

Arriving in New York, Gordon and the others find that aside from the city's already heavy damage it is under invasion from the Combine. Dr. Mossman tells Gordon that she needs him to get into the bottom level of the World Trade Center as there is said to be a way to stop alien invasions kept at the bottom of the building. Alyx and Dr. Mossman begin to head off through some rubble telling Gordon that they're going to see if the Resistance HQ in New York is still standing and will try to keep in touch with Gordon chucking him a Earpiece to listen over. Gordon then begins his progression through the war-torn city towards the World Trade Center.

Chapter 5: Secret of Egypt

Finding evidence at the bottom of the World Trade Center that a secret weapon was built beneath the great pyramids in case of a returning attack from the Combine, Gordon Freeman and Alyx leave Dr. Mossman and the rest of the New York division of the Resistance ot head to Egypt to rendevouz with their Cairo base, however after being gunned down by a combine Gunship, Alyx and Gordon are seperated and Gordon must traverse the sandy ruins surrounding the great pyramids to meet with the team that was supposed to meet them both outside the Pyramids.

Chapter 8: Orange Skies
