Playing games with virtual reality technology has now become a thing of the present. While we could only dream of such a great occasion a few years ago, this has all become reality now. Playing your favorite game using VR technology is perhaps one of the best opportunities for an avid gamer. Imagine being fully immersed in the universe of your favorite game, be it the Sims or a violent shooter of sorts. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
Well, now one of everyone’s all-time favorite games is coming to both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. We’re talking about Half Life 2. Half Life 2 was released 13 years ago, and it took the world by storm. To this day, gamers consider it one of the best games ever made. And all for good reason, seeing as how the universe of City 17 provided you with anything you’d need for a cool gaming experience.
Perfected Mod Makes Half Life 2 Suited for VR
Of course, the version that is coming to the two virtual reality devices is a remastered one, perfectly tweaked and improved in order to fit this modern type of technology. This all is possible due to a very ambitious and inventive mod that a team of developers have been working on for years now.
The mod comes with VR UI, realistic weapon interactions, as well as VR locomotion methods, updated textures and maps and HDR lighting. All these features are what turned Half Life 2 into a virtual reality paradise, but it did take some hard work too. The team worked for years on this mod, even though the initial purpose was just to remaster the game, not bring it to VR. But we’re glad they also made this possible for us.
