What is it?
Collaborate is an upcoming Half-Life 2 MP teamplay modification with NPCs. There are 2 teams, Team Combine and Team Humans, with players divided in squads. Every squadleader is able to spawn & control NPCs, ammocrates, traps and more. Both teams will need to complete objectives to win the game. Work together, side by side, with NPCs & players to complete your objectives before your opponents do.
Are the Humans fighting to infiltrate a Combine base or are both teams are trying to outlast the other? Fight with all you have because you’re up against real opponents.

- No deadlines, no hurries (we go for quality, not time.. but not toooo long)
- Relaxed team (need something? just ask)
- Your opinion counts. No concept here that can't be changed.
