Immerse Yourself in Half-Life 2 with Fanmade VR Mod Project

A mod development team has just posted on Steam Greenlight the announcement of a VR project for the legendary first-person shooter Half-Life 2.

With this mod project, players can enjoy a full experience of Half-Life 2 in virtual reality via latest headsets, like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. For the first time, gamers can immerse themselves in the epic adventure of Gordon Freeman, holding and swinging the iconic crowbar like in real-life. In order to achieve that, the controls will be revised with realistic weapon interactions via Vive’s remote controller, while having the HUD re-designed for VR compability.

Due to the constraint of the old Source engine implemented in Half-Life 2, the developers have to make some workarounds to get the game working for modern VR headsets. Therefore, the game itself will get additional upgrades, such as effects, textures, HDR lighting, models & maps, if not to the point of being a full remaster.

Currently, the developers are campaigning for the project’s appearance on Greenlight, which allows users around the world to vote on and get the project approved on Steam. If the campaign is successful, the mod project will be released for free, though ownership of the original Half-Life 2 is still required. Moreover, the team is also working on VR support for Episode One and Episode Two.
