Half-Life Dreamcast is Sierra's first new-generation console title and as such, Sierra Studios wants to ensure that gamers will receive the most exhilarating experience possible on the Dreamcast. Releasing the game early next year will allow the developers to polish all aspects of the game and to fine-tune gameplay.
Half-Life Dreamcast is being developed by Northern California-based Captivation Digital Laboratories in conjunction with Gearbox Software and Valve. Half-Life: Dreamcast is set to be even more exciting than the original PC version. The Sega Dreamcast edition includes the original version of Half-Life with several enhancements. Highly detailed characters, enhanced weapons, and an all new exclusive mission, Half-Life: Blue Shift. The articulate animation showcases the power of the Sega Dreamcast and delivers a fresh and exciting experience for console gamers.
