Half-Life 2: VR mod released

The long-awaited VR mod for half-life 2 is available for free on Steam and brings the legendary Valve title to a near-native level of immersion. This is a fan made project and development started almost 10 years ago, although the main developer had to get in the way of work on the mod after moving to Rockstar Games due to life and work.

However, last year modder Cabilastic joined Wormslayer and the rest of the Source VR team to finally bring Half-Life 2 to full VR. It’s available now for PC players at no additional cost through early access. Granted, you’ll need a copy of the game to play, but you can get these in a variety of bundles for a reasonable price.

The team is also providing a roadmap so players can keep tabs on new features and bug fixes. Below is what they had to say:

“Although we certainly can’t ‘remaster’ HL2 To look like a game developed in 2022, we’re working on overhauling assets and textures through a combination of AI upscaling and manual intervention to give them that extra bit of detail and sharpness under the VR headset that the original lacks. All updates should remain true to the original. Additionally, all of the maps in the game will be facelifted and improved with updated lighting, more detail and bug fixes, as well as VR-centric adjustments like smooth stairs.”
