Half-Life 2 is a first-person shooter developed by Valve that was released back in 2004 and it has recently been ported on the Linux platform. The first patches have started to arrive.

Porting a complex title such as Half-Life 2 is a very difficult task and the developers have to release a lot of updates until the game exist the Beta stages.

Highlights of the latest Half-Life 2 update:

• A few NPC sentences that did not contain contextual information (like map location) have been fixed;
• The player’s input is locked during the introduction sequence in Half-Life 2;
• Episode 1 ep1_c17_00 has been fixed and Alex now says the correct sentences;
• The power plugin now has a red light after you fix it in the teleport sequence, in Half-Life 2.

More details about this update can be found in the official announcement.

This might break any save games that were made DURING the beta, if you get an error on load of a save, then you will need to manually restart that map, the command to type is shown in the console.
