Half-Life 2 as a real-time strategy game? Yes

In 2007 a group of Half-Life fans began developing a real-time strategy game set in the universe of the valve shooter. After almost 14 years, version 1.0 of the title has been released on Steam as Lambda Wars.

The game is a mod for Alien Swarm. However, both games can be downloaded at no additional cost. In Lambda Wars, fans can look forward not only to the single player with missions and tutorials, but also to a multiplayer mode for up to eight players. Before starting a game, players can choose between the Combine and Resistance factions. Antlions are also available in sandbox mode. Lambda Wars offers numerous elements that fans of the genre will also find in other current real-time strategy games.

The Half-Life 2 RTS Is Finally 'Out' After 13 Years Of Development

For over a decade now, a group of fans have been working on Lambda Wars, a real-time strategy game set in the Half-Life universe. Originally a Half-Life 2 mod, and later a standalone beta, the thing is now finished, or as finished as a game ever gets these days, anyway.

Half-Life 2 Is Now A Strategy Game. Thanks, Modders

Having begun development in 2007, the team announced the release of v1.0 on Sunday, pointing out how it has, “progressed from a proof of concept into a fully fledged assymetrical RTS game with Singleplayer, Co-op and Multiplayer gamemodes.” (sic)

The v1.0 release added new units, buildings, bug fixes and remodels, and is available for free from Lambda Wars’ Steam page.

I remember playing this a long time ago and digging it, while Nathan played the game back in 2014 and wrote about it on the site. Perhaps the most interesting thing about it is, like they say, the “assymetrical” nature of it. The rebels (humans) are entirely unable to compete with the Combine’s overwhelming military might in a straight-up encounter, and so the two factions play completely differently.
