Absolute Redemption

for Half-Life

And that, in this time, the Xen race would be oppressed by the armies from the far side of the portal.

It was also written that once the portal was opened, a human known as “Freeman” would cross the galactic transverse into Xen space, and set free the three sacred Telnorps, the guardians of the gate who had been captured from the ancient enemies of the Xen, the Zan from the Theldran galaxy.

And so it was that the prophecy came to pass, and the weakened Xen were powerless to resist an onslaught from the Zan. In the dawn of the first Ashaan of Xen time, the elders of the high council sanctioned an uneasy alliance with the perpetrators of the impending disaster, the Human race, in order to restore the sacred telnorps, and thus sealing the Zan gateway… forever.

This is an unfinished map that was released because it will never be finished. This was originally released as a HL2 map and had missing textures. The file has been updated and changed to Ep2. It plays okay, so I thought you might want to try it.

for Half-Life 2

published: 2007

The Story So Far: You’re Gordon Freeman (surprise!). You got captured and the combine imprisoned you in a re-education centre.
