'''''City 17 Episode One''''' is a third-party, single player Mods|mod for ''Half-Life 2'' currently under development. It will require a copy of ''Half-Life 2 Episode Two'' and will be available for free.

== Overview ==

''City 17 Episode One'' takes place during the ''Half-Life 2'' timeline. The player controls a character named Jack who finds himself surmounting the task of getting out of City 17 alive, and helping as many of its Citizens before the impending Citadel destruction as he can.

Featuring new enemies, weapons, gameplay features, and ''"True-To-Valve"'' design, ''City 17 Episode One'' will attempt to "raise the bar" for mods everywhere. ''City 17'' will see episodic development, taking the player and their goals across the majority of scenery and locales that Gordon Freeman himself visits, and even a few that he does not.

''City 17 Episode One'' began development in 2005, and was subsequently restarted in 2007. Team Gear planned to release the mod sometime in 2011; however, it was pushed back to a 2012 release due to an engine update in 2010.
