Half-Life 2 mod Minerva comes to Steam for free

The Adam Foster-developed Half-Life 2 mod Minerva is coming to Steam later today following its initial release in 2007, Eurogamer reports.

The updated game will feature a number of bug fixes, visual tweaks, improved puzzles, in addition to a few other improvements in time for its Steam release. The mod will require Half-Life 2: Episode One to play; however, Minerva will be made available for free beyond that initial necessity.

Minerva refers to the mod's unseen narrator who guides the player as they explore a mysterious underground Combine facility. The game will become available on Steam in late morning west coast time.
