Half-Life 2 set a record, more precisely, for the audience of the game. Fans of Valve’s FPS game decided it was time to “break through the barrier,” which means they announced Breaking the Bar, an event designed to surpass the record number of users playing Half-Life 2 simultaneously on Steam.
the event website 16,101 players were finally persuaded last night to launch the HF2 at the same time, SteamDB It also supports. The first goal was to go further 6.882 then a 13216-ost is. The former was a previous record made by Steam Charts and the latter by SteamDB. While the result is now glamorous, it is by no means certain that most people have played the game on Steam at the same time. HF2 was released a long time ago, in 2004, and only later data was released about how many people are currently playing on the platform. the SteamDB, for example, only displays user results for a game since 2008.
The movement on Twitch also produced good results, with 8,630 spectators watching HF2 streams at the same time. The event website did not explain what the point of the signing decision was, although many likely wanted to signal to Valve that it would be a good idea to finally continue the series. It’s unlikely that Half-Life 3 will be announced tomorrow when you see the result, but as the case of VR Alyx shows, the series hasn’t been discontinued yet.
