The third instalment in the Half-Life comic series was released today on Steam, entitled ‘The Pit’. It may not be the announcement of a new game that fans have been waiting for, but will hopefully scratch the itch for those needing a Half-Life fix.
For those who missed the comic series, it has been running since September of 2016 and is titles ‘A Place in the West’. The project originally started as an unlicensed fan project way back in 2014 before Valve granted the creators the Half-Life licence to continue with the series.
Below is the website description of the comic series as well as a trailer from the Steam website:
A Place in the West follows three characters who are each in their own way drawn to a strange American city called New Franklin. Once inside, they discover a powerful secret, but the city holds many dangers, deceptive temptations, and a society on the brink of madness… A Place in the West offers a compelling story and a complex and intriguing cast of all-new characters, drawing on the rich mythology of the Half-Life universe in an entirely new medium for the series.
The comic is only available on Steam, with the first chapter free and chapters 2 and 3 costing £1.50/$2.00 each.
