Half-Life fans plan a unique protest because of silence over Half-Life 3
Almost 30,000 fans of the Half-Life series are planning a very unique form of protest this weekend to encourage Valve to talk about how they plan to continue the series.
Five years after the release of Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was released there has been no communication from Valve at all on how they plan to continue the series and fans are now a bit sick of the silence.
Instead of clogging forums with complaints and trolling, one group of fans which has swollen to almost 30,000-strong is planning to play Half-Life 2 en-masse on Saturday between 11 and 11.30am PST to show their love for the series and encourage a bit more openness on Valve's part.
The group's message is simple: "Instead of focusing efforts in a negative and disrespectful way, we have decided to gain Valve's attention by delivering a basic message: Your oldest and longest running fanbase would like better communication."
Good luck to them. We hope their protest will bear some fruit. If you want to join the protest you can find their Steam group here.
Thanks PC Gamer.
