Category: Main Games 1st Person Shooter Half-Life Blue Shift:


The Academy never prepared you for this... It seemed like just another day on the job... until fierce alien life forms came crashing through the walls and a military death squad invaded the hallways of Black Mesa. As security in this top-secret government facility, you must scramble to keep the scientists and yourself alive, as you extinguish the many hostiles attempting to take you out. It's going to be quite a day... Half-Life has been named Game of the Year by over 50 publications and dubbed, "The best PC Game Ever" by PC Gamer. In Half-Life: Blue Shift, players are challenged to take on the role of the Black Mesa security guard and explore restricted areas of the mysterious government facility. Blue Shift also contains the Half-Life HD Pack, which automatically upgrades the weapons and characters of all the games in the Half-Life saga with new high definition content. In addition, Half-Life: Blue Shift also contains Half-Life: Opposing Force, the award winning episode that casts you as one of the military specialists assigned to eliminate Gordon Freeman.
