Rise and shine, Mr.Freeman. Rise… and shine.
A couple of years ago fans began working on a remaster of Half-Life 2 that they promised would offer great improvements graphically and enhance gameplay with the improved mods. Later in the development phase, the group decided not to just remaster Half-Life 2 but planned to re-design the whole game for Virtual Reality. 🙂
The mod is now completely different, the modders have now enhanced Half-Life 2, Episode 1, and Episode 2’s Source Engine in order to give them a slightly more modern look while making them fully VR functional. According to the mod’s developer’s, Half-Life 2 will be fully playable using motion controls. They have also stated that the players will be required to tilt the magnum in order to empty its spent cartridges just as Gordon Freeman does in the original game.
The Half-Life 2: VR team have revealed that you will need Episode 1 and 2 in order to play the mod and that the team has plans on remaking the additional episodes in VR at a later date. You will need a VR compatible PC to play the game and either an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
Half-Life 2: VR still needs to go through Steam Greenlight, vote for the game below.
