The Half-Life 2 Remastered fan project, which seeks to improve and relaunch Valve’s iconic shooter using the CSGO Source engine, is undergoing a public demo on Steam.
Half-Life 2 Remastered, which is expected to improve and relaunch Valve’s classic FPS game, is being tested on Steam, which could indicate a release near in the future.
Created by the same developers of Half-Life 2 Update, Remastered It’s not a complete Black Mesa-style remake, but rather a visually revamped and improved version of the original Half-Life 2., although apparently it has the approval and blessing of Valve.
Half-Life 2 Remastered is being developed by Filip Victor, who previously co-created the Half-Life 2 Update in 2015.
Remastered moves the sci-fi shooter to a more advanced version of Valve’s Source engine, specifically the one that powers CSGO. Victor reportedly holds a creator’s license, which means that he has gained access to and use of the company’s own Valve engine and files. In fact, Half-Life 2 Update, just like the HL1 Black Mesa remake, was released on Steam.
Now it looks like Half-Life 2 Remastered is getting the same treatment as it goes through a public test. This potentially means that a new demo version of Half-Life 2 Remastered will be available soon, either for a select group of players or for the entire Steam market.
Alternatively, this could be the first step in preparation for the full release of the game. Either way, it looks like Half-Life 2 Remastered is still in full development and we hope it will arrive soon.
