"Dr. Breen again? I was hoping I'd seen the last of him in City 14."
Citizen[src]

A Combine City is what the Combine have made of Earth's major cities.

Overview[edit]

  • Following the Seven Hour War and the surrender of Earth's governments, the Combine renamed the remaining cities with generic names and numbers, i.e. "City #". The city would be modified by the Combine to accommodate their needs with various technology.
  • A City 14 is also mentioned by a Citizen in the City 17 Trainstation waiting hall: According to that Citizen, Breen has a presence there as well, likely through his Breencast broadcasts. For unknown reasons, City 14 is not present on the schedule in the Trainstation's waiting hall.

Behind the scenes[edit]

The train schedule as seen in the City 17 Trainstation.

City 40 and 49 are mentioned by Samuel in the vignette Now Arriving: City 17 in Half-Life 2: Raising the Bar, in which he states that most of the towns are identical from afar and that only inside is it possible to see how they were "before" (i.e. before the Seven Hour War and the Combine occupation).[2]
