Valve Isn’t Giving Up On Half-Life…Yet

It seems that Valve isn’t giving up just yet on Half-Life as the game received its first update in four years.

The 20 year old first-person shooter got its first update in years to update a few minor bugs and updates. The patch includes the following updates:

  • Fixed crash when entering certain malformed strings into the game console. Thanks to Marshal Webb from BackConnect, Inc for reporting this.
  • Fixed crash when loading a specially crafted malformed BSP file. Thanks to Grant Hernandez (@Digital_Cold) for reporting this.
  • Fixed malformed SAV files allowing arbitrary files to be written into the game folder. Thanks to Vsevolod Saj for reporting this.
  • Fixed a crash when quickly changing weapons that are consumable. Thanks to Sam Vanheer for reporting this.
  • Fixed crash when setting custom decals

Although this update has got fans appreciating that the studio didn’t forget about the popular game, they were left wanting more. After the update fans couldn’t help but question when and if Half-Life 3 will be releasing and if this patch is in preparation for it, but they shouldn’t hold their breath for a response.
