While we might not get to play Half-Life 3 anytime soon, there’s something new from Valve nonetheless. The company along with NVIDIA has released Half-Life 2: Episode One on Android. However, the game is available exclusively on NVIDIA Shield tablets, thus making it unavailable for majority of Android users. And if the developer is anything to go by, we doubt it’ll make an appearance on other other hardware any time soon. Unfortunately, the game is incompatible with the older NVIDIA Shield console, since it’s Tegra 4 isn’t powerful enough to run the game. Also, the game requires a controller to play.
