Half-Life 2, the seminal first-person shooter from Valve, is now available on Nvidia Shield for $9.99, Nvidia announced today.

Valve and Nvidia are selling Half-Life 2 on Google Play, but it only supports the Shield handheld, not Android devices in general. The companies also worked together to bring the first-person puzzle game Portal to the Shield, and launched it on Google Play today alongside Half-Life 2Portal costs $9.99 as well.

"Nvidia has done a remarkable job bringing both Half-Life 2 and Portal to Shield," said Doug Lombardi, vice president of marketing at Valve, in a press release today. "We're playing both games here on our Shields and fans of both franchises can expect the same gameplay they've come to love on the PC."
