Valve ports Half-Life to Linux

Filed under
Gaming

In order for Steam to be a success on Linux it needs lots of games, and it needs games from all the major publishers going forward. But because this is Steam, Valve has a back catalog of games to call upon that everyone still wants to play. One of those games is Half-Life, and Valve has now made it available on Steam for Linux.

The 1998 game has apparently been added to the library of games that runs on Linux. The good news is, if you already purchased the game for Windows and have it available on your Steam account, there’s nothing else to do but download it to your Linux machine and start playing. Alternatively, if you don’t own the game, it’s a $9.99 purchase.
