Half-Life 2 virtual reality modification makes its way to Steam Greenlight, supports HTC Vive and Oculus Rift
Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 16:52 GMT

A modding team known as Source VR Mod Team has submitted a virtual reality modification for the popular shooter game Half-Life 2 to Steam Greenlight.


The new modification aims to bring the virtual reality experience to the classic shooter game Half-Life 2 that was first released in 2004. The community project has been in development since 2013.

The modification features support for most modern virtual reality headsets, including the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift, motion controller support and even includes updated effects, textures, models and maps to make the game look better in the high rendering resolutions required for virtual reality.

The modification also features a new 3D virtual reality user interface and head-up display, realistic weapon interactions and multiple locomotion methods.

The team behind the modification aims to bring it to Steam free of charge if it successfully gets through its Greenlight program.

Once available, gamers will still be required to own a copy of Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1 or Half-Life 2: Episode 2 on Steam.
