Half-Life 2: Episode One now available for the Nvidia Shield Tablet
A few weeks ago, NVIDIA announced their plans to release Half-Life 2: Episode One on the Shield Tablet. That day has finally come, and Shield Tablet owners can now download the game from Google Play for $7.99. In order to play the game, you must own both a Nvidia Shield Tablet and a SHIELD controller.
For those who are unfamiliar, Half-Life 2: Episode One was originally released in 2006, and stands as the follow-up to the original Half-Life 2. Set in City 17, Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance fight against the Combine in an attempt to evacuate the city. This is a 2006 release, but the game looks just as good as the original, and it’s always impressive to see a console game running on a mobile platform.
If you decided to purchase the LTE variant of the Shield Tablet, you should have already received the “Green Box Bundle,” which includes free downloads of Half-Life 2, Portal, and now, Half-Life 2: Episode One. So, for all of the Wifi-only Shield Tablet owners out there, head to the Play Store to download the game for $7.99.
