These days we’re spoiled for cooperative games. From Halo to Left4Dead and most recently The Division, the modern player’s choices for playing together with friends are abundant. Wind the clock back a decade and a half, however, and the situation was very different.
Sven Co-op, the now 17-year-old Half-Life co-op mod, is getting its standalone Steam release on the 22nd—this Friday. It’ll launch as a free download with several maps, including the original Half-Life campaign, reworked for the mod’s newest version.
The developers of Sven Co-op, a nearly fifteen-years-old but still regularly updated mod that lets you play Valve's original Half-Life cooperatively with friends online, announced that their creation is heading to Steam as a free stand-alone game. With huge improvements.
