The developers at Half-Time Studios have created a custom-made car for the Half-life 3 campaign, and you can now experience it in-game.
The car has been crafted by the game’s modder, James M. Mason.
It’s not a fully featured car like other Half-Death series cars, but it can carry a payload of up to eight people, and is designed for speed.
It looks fantastic and can drive at up to 300mph.
The Half-time modder is currently working on a Half-death car for Half-Space.
You can see it in action in the video above.
If you’ve ever played Half-Earth: Source, then you’ll recognise it from the Halflife 2 and Half-World DLCs, and also from the game as part of Half-a-Year.
Masons car has a similar design to the other vehicles in the Half time series, and it was designed to be a more efficient vehicle than the others.
“Half-Life 2 had an engine of the most powerful in the series, which was called the N-series engine.
That engine, when you were playing it, would blow through every single level of the game,” Masons modding partner James M Mason told me.
“Half-Time 2 had the E-series, which has a smaller engine and a lot more performance.
It has more fuel capacity than the E and it’s much more efficient, but they were the two most powerful engines in the game.”
The E-Series was designed for racing.
“The E was designed by people who knew what they were doing,” Mason explained.
“They thought it was going to be very fast, and they had a lot of money, so they could afford to put in an engine that was just a bit slower than what they had in their cars.
They didn’t know what the real performance would be.”
The other Half time vehicles were the C-series and D-series.
“When Half-space was released, Half-game started to do a lot to try to make it a more accessible game to more people,” Mason said.
“So they started to build cars like that.”
Masons custom car is one of four in Half Life 3, and the other four are: a F-series rocket launcher, a rocket-propelled vehicle, a small transport, and a small cargo van.
You need a payload with more than eight people to load it, but you can pick up your payload when you need to, and transport it to different locations.
Makers custom car can carry up to seven people, but Masons own rocket launcher can carry over 12.
“It had this rocket that could carry people to the Moon, and this rocket-powered van that would go up and down the city in a little town called ‘Little Green Cars’.””
It’s not yet known whether this custom car will ever see a retail release. “

Mason has a passion for the series and Half time cars and Half life 3 was just the perfect vehicle to showcase his skills and passion.
“That’s one of the reasons why I’m making this car,” Mason told us.
“My brother had been doing a lot for Half Time, so he had the idea of making this, and I thought it would make sense for it to be his own car.”
