Half-Life 3: Unannounced Explores How Gordon Freeman Is Handling The Wait

Fan-made short film Half-Life 3: Unannounced depicts Freeman wasting away from boredom as he waits for his next adventure.


Half-Life fans aren't the only ones eagerly anticipating the release of the long-awaited, but unconfirmed, Half-Life 3.

A new fan-made short film shows that Half-Life hero Gordon Freeman is suffering from boredom as he waits for his next chance to fight the Combine and save Earth.

Check out the film above, called Half-Life 3: Unannounced, from New Zealand-based film studio Fence Post Productions. As you'll see, time has not been kind to Freeman, who we see wasting away in his room, drinking and messing around with the Gravity Gun.

It's actually kind of sad. Valve, won't you finally make Half-Life 3 and free Gordon from this tortured existence?

The most recent Half-Life game was 2007's Half-Life 2: Episode Two. A third episode was planned, but has not seen the light of day. For now, fan videos like the one here and this frustratingly excellent unofficial trailer are all we have to hold us over.
