Game classic: Valve releases patch for Half-Life (1998)

Spieleklassiker: Valve veröffentlicht Patch für Half-Life (1998)

Out of the blue, Valve has updated the shooter’s original half-life from 1998 with another patch. The update fixes five minor errors, four of which were reported by players. Although the practical relevance is low, Valve is still in the trend with product maintenance.

Other publishers have also discovered the value of their classics. This is reflected in isolated HD versions and remakes, but also in actual updates for ten and more years old video games. Blizzard or Nordic Games expand their games with extensive patches to add new features or improve compatibility with modern operating systems.
