With Valve's blessing, it seems the Half-Life 2 series is getting a full update from the team that made Half-Life 2: Update in the form of the Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection.

You can see the entry up on SteamDB, with a Steam page not yet live. However, this has actually been listed since May 2020 so why is it getting noticed again now? It seems Tyler McVicker, known for doing the Valve News Network which is now just under McVicker's name, posted on Twitter noting that it will include the additional episodes too and in a later Twitter post McVicker mentioned speaking to the team behind it to confirm it is indeed legitimate.

For people who are still somehow yet to play through Half-Life 2 and the episodes, perhaps this Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection might end up being the best way.

Whenever we see more information on it, we'll let you know.

I hope this is handled better than Black Mesa. That Linux port have unfixed performance issues and if I knew the treatment Linux users would get, I would have got a refund the moment I saw the unchecked multithread option in the menu.

Quoting: ValsoInstead of remastering it, they should have made more stories. Remastering the game won't make it more interesting.

Did you even read the article? They aren't remastering the game. A fan is doing that.

Quoting: emphyStill peeved at the forced install of that shop to be able to play the game. I'll keep skipping it.

Yes, I can hold grudges for a long, long time.

It's especially frustrating because you don't need the client to play Valves games. I've used steamcmd in the past, but for the last few years, I've just given in, and used the client.

I did, ofc. It doesn't say anywhere that a fan is doing it. In fact, this line "Tyler McVicker, known for doing the Valve News Network" suggests it's Valve doing the remaster.
