The first Half-Life, Values seminal FPS released in 1998, has received a new patch/update. The patch was released last night on Steam, and it fixes a few issues that I honestly don’t remember if they were a big problem back in those day.

After 19 years, Valve has released a new update for Half-Life. The patch amazed many gamers because everyone thought that Valve has forgotten Half-Life. The update doesn’t bring a lot of new stuff, However it does fix a few bugs that were reported by the players.

Here’s what the official patch notes say :

  • 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.

Half-Life was and still is a very popular FPS title. Valve has sold almost 10 million copies worldwide, the game was a great achievement. Developed and published by Valve, Half-Life was launched back in November 1998. Now when can we presume to see a new Half-Life game, eh Valve?
