Updates to Half-Life 2: Episode One have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. Based on the statistics gathered from people playing through Episode One, we're making a small balance change to the elevator battle before you head back up to City 17. The specific changes are as follows:
- Half-Life 2: Episode One
- Added some more health for players to pick up
- Added more cinderblocks and barrels for physics ammunition
- Added some extra shotgun shells at start of the fight
- Slightly reduced the number of zombies attacking the player
Alas, it's unfortunate that gamers lacking skills or wit ultimately force the game developers to make the game easier than it should.
