Steam version of Renegade Ops includes Gordon Freeman's buggy, Antlions

El Gordo

We're sure the inclusion of Gordon Freeman and his buggy in the Steam version of Renegade Ops was conceived to be a fun bonus for fans of the Half-Life series. We're also sure that allowing players to use Antlions as special weapons was intended merely as a clever homage to one of gaming's most revered titles. Furthermore, the fact that the bonus content will be included at no extra charge when the game is released on October 14 seems well-intentioned.

The unfortunate (and surely unintended) side effect: Renegade Ops is the first game in years with a playable Gordon Freeman and it isn't Half-Life 2: Episode Three.
