The Mind Control Facility is the heart of the operations being hidden by Stanley's boss. It comprises of 3 rooms: the Monitor Room, Countdown Room and Facility Power Room.


The Freedom Ending and Countdown Ending occur within the facility, excluding the Monitor Room. The entrance itself does not feature any endings.

Taking the path labeled "Escape" leads to the Museum Ending; it does not directly occur within this room.

In Ultra Deluxe, falling to the bottom of the facility yields the Bottom of the Mind Control Room Ending

Differences In HL2 Mod & HD Remix

  • In the HD Remix, the facility is divided into three sections, while in the original Half-Life 2 modification the facility only has a large room.
  • The Monitor Room in the HD Remix contains hundreds of screens, but only several screens presented in the original mod.
  • The Countdown Room has many buttons and computers in the HD Remix. In the original mod, there are only three computers with buttons scattered around the room's corner.
  • The Facility Power Room, in the original mod, was located on top of the Monitor Room; however, the Power Room was given its own room in the HD Remix.
  • The countdown timer is set on a large screen in the HD Remix, while in the original mod, the timer simply appears overlaid on the player's HUD.
