The Half-Life series is currently free to play on PC

Valve is celebrating the upcoming launch of its VR title Half-Life: Alyx by making the entire Half-Life series free to play for a limited time.

From now until the launch of Half-Life: Alyx, Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Half-Life: Opposing Force, Half-Life: Blue Shift, and Team Fortress Classic are free to play on Steam.

Half-Life: Alyx is set before the events of Half-Life 2 and the episodes, but the games share characters and story elements,” Valve wrote. “The Half-Life: Alyx team believes that the best way to enjoy the new game is to play through the old ones, especially Half-Life 2 and the episodes, so we want to make that as easy as possible.”

Half-Life: Alyx is scheduled to launch in March 2020.
