The Half-Life community is gearing up to break a world record today in its #rememberFreeman campaign. The fans of the series are asked to restart the original Half-Life for at least a half hour today in order to reach the 6,000 pairs of players record.
The operation is already proving successful, with a sharp increase in Half-Life players getting in the early hours of August 14. More than 1200 players are now online, and it is not a question whether there will be any more tag in to help beat the previous record.

Sony VR 2 has got to launch with Half-Life Alyx.
The campaign isn’t supposed to begin until 3:00 GMT, but fans don’t look like they have got enough time. As we look to the adage, more and more players are logging on.
Many members of the Half-Life community promoted #RememberFreeman last month, including YouTuber Radiation Hazard. Although it may initially sound like a way to get Valve’s attention back on the series, Radiation Hazard says that the idea behind the campaign is simply to show the world that the half-Life community is alive and well.
A website was designed to keep track of how many players participated in the event. Everything you could ever know about this challenge is here, but it’s perfect for anybody who wants to get involved.
In order to see how the website works, fans can say that you should play vanilla Half-Life. Mods such as Half Life: Source, Blue Shift, Opposing Force, Decay, Sven Co-op will not be counted on the total amount of concurrent players. There is plenty of time for you to join. If you want to have some fun, there is still plenty of room left for the fans.
