Half-Life 2 will be playable in VR after 5 years of hard work: we already know when and you can see it in action

A few years ago, virtual reality was little more than a grand dream, something to sell us as the future of entertainment in science fiction movies and series. Much has happened since then and, despite the fact that a large part of the video games are still not applied, every day there is more space for VR in this industry.

“A project as big and ambitious as Half-Life 2: VR it never quite ends”, say the developers of one of the most ambitious mods I’ve seen for Valve’s game. Bringing one of the greatest shooter classics to virtual reality and making it play as well as it deserves is a task titanic So much so that its creators have been working on this project half luster.

After five years of hard work and many, many hours of testing, the Half-Life 2: VR mod is very close to launch, being able to be one of the great surprises of the year. And it is that the project is much more than simply taking us into the eyes of Gordon Freeman with a virtual reality helmet.

The mod, in addition to that, seeks to create an experience that feels complete. Featuring full movement in the spaces where the action takes place, adjustments so that all the weapons in the game feel good, precise and within reach of anyone with redesigned menus that will make the action never feel clunky.

On the other hand, we also see one of the most essential additions for this type of adventure: hand tracking to get very, very into the war between Gordon Freeman, the Combine and City 17. Of course, there are two things behind this adventure: effort and passion.

Of course, the big surprise comes now: despite not having a specific date decided yet, Half-Life 2: VR will be available next month. Its developers have said that they will release it on a Friday of the month, and that they are still deciding which one. On the other hand, it is possible that the mod is also on Steam, but they are waiting for Valve to give them the green light.

Personally, this type of project freaks me out, and seeing one so worked on and with so much care behind it makes me hopeful for those mods that are still in development. In the end, these works are a great sample of the community potential that surround video games, and that is always worth admiring.
