Half-Life 2: Lost Coast

2005 additional level for the 2004 video game Half-Life 2

Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is a free bonus level that was cut from Half-Life 2. Because of this, it is considered non-canon. It is also very short, taking only about 15 minutes to complete.

Plot change

Gordon Freeman wakes up on a beach. He meets an old fisherman, who says the evil Combine are shelling the nearby village of St. Olga from a church on a hill they’ve taken over. Gordon must climb the sheer cliff up to the church while avoiding Combine soldiers. When he gets to the church, he jams the gun and stops the shelling. The Combine then send in an assault on the church, after which Gordon must fight a boss in the form of a Combine helicopter. After shooting down the helicopter with a rocket launcher, he takes a makeshift elevator back down to the fisherman, who plans to celebrate with a “feast” of leeches. Before he can do so, it is implied that Gordon is teleported away to an unknown destination, ending the game.
