Gordon Freeman Returns In A New Game

Half-Life protagonist Gordon Freeman is about to make a long-awaited return to gaming. He's a playable character in the PC version of vehicle combat game Renegade Ops.

"Working with Steam and the Half-Life team makes this game extra special.” said Sega’s director of digital, John Clark (via PC Gamer). "Gordon Freeman is a deeply-established character in the gaming world and we are proud to have him included in Renegade Ops."

In Renegade, Freeman drives the buggy from Half-Life 2. He left his crowbar and gravity gun at home but he's still got a pretty big arsenal to choose from. If the mounted rocket launchers and machine guns on his buggy don't kill you, the pack of antlions he summons will.

Renegade Ops is a top-down, vehicle-based shooter from Just Cause developers Avalanche Studios. The campaign can be played alone, with a friend via split-screen, or with three friends online. You can compete with fellow drivers through online leaderboards.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 received a Freeman-less Renegade earlier in September. The PC edition is due on October 14th.
