Half-Life players are planning to break a Steam world record

Half-Life players have honored Valve’s FPS masterpiece by breaking the Steam record of concurrent users in a follow-up to Half-Life 2 – Breaking the Bar

Half-Life 3 isn’t happening. It might be true, but it is not what I need to believe in order to move forward. At the same time, I continue taking solace in the vibrant Half-Life fan community, which keeps turning in FPS iconic record, Half-Life enthusiasts are taking to Steam to set a new world record. Everyone is invited.

At exactly 3PM GMT on August 14, 2022 the Half-Life community will log in to Steam en masse and open Half-Life’s copies. The goal is to break the SteamDB record of concurrently playing users currently at around 6,000. This is a realistic goal considering that Half-Life 2 was launched simultaneously in 2021 as part of Breaking the Bar. The event saw 16,000 players play Half-Life 2 simultaneously, breaking the previous record and establishing a flag for the continued popularity of the sci-fi shooter.
