Owners of the NVIDIA Shield Tablet can pick up Half-Life 2: Episode One for Android starting today. In it you take up the crowbar once more as Gordon Freeman following the catastrophic conclusion of classic first-person shooter game Half-Life 2. City 17 and the Citadel are a bit of a mess, but you're jumping back into the fray with Alyx one more time. Dog the robot even shows up for a bit.
The release of Episode One came alongside news about the Shield's Android 5.0 Lollipop update, which included mention of the Green Box bundle for anyone picking up a new 32 GB Shield Tablet. The Green Box includes other Valve games to find their way onto the Shield Tablet, such as Portal, Half-Life 2, and the newly-launched Episode One.
It's great to see Valve games continue to find their way onto Android, even if the games are a little older and limited to the NVIDIA Shield Tablet for now. We played a bit over the weekend, and it's safe to say that it's a good buy for anyone who never got around to playing Episode One the first time around.
Half-Life 2: Episode 1 is available for $7.99 in the Google Play Store right now. Who's in?
