Half-Life: Uplink is a special standalone version of the 1998 first-person shooter computer game Half-Life. Uplink features many of the common enemies, characters, and weapons from the full game, but the location and scenario in this demonstration do not appear in Half-Life. Like its successor's demo, however, Uplink was made available for download after the release of the full retail version of the game.

The Uplink chapters were cut during Half-Life's development phase, and roughly fit in prior to or during the Lambda Core chapter. They were, however, strongly revised for this release. Uplink also includes the same Hazard Course from the full release of Half-Life.

Uplink was included with the Game of the Year Edition of Half-Life as a mod, and was included with all subsequent releases. While absent from Steam, Uplink can still be installed if the user has access to the Uplink files from a previous Half-Life install, through Uplink Lite or through Uplink Addon, which seamlessly adds the Uplink levels into the gameflow of Half-Life itself.

Uplink was also included with certain video cards as bundled on one disk that also included Team Fortress Classic and Counter-Strike 1.3.
