Here’s a Steam Greenlight campaign, run by fans, featuring a virtual reality mod for a game made by the guys who own Steam.

Playing a proper VR version of Half-Life 2 seems like a no-brainer for anyone with a VR headset. It also seems like something Valve would have made and released for free with the Vive at launch. They didn’t, though, so here we are.


Half Life 2: VR isn’t a standalone product; it’s a mod (that’ll work on both Vive and Rift) for the original game that makes a whole bunch of tweaks, like increasing the resolution on a bunch of textures and models, creating a new 3D interface and new “interactions” for weapons like the crowbar.


So why vote on Greenlight for a mod? The creators (some of whom worked on an older version of the same ideawant it to be able to be installed with one click via Steam, the home of Half-Life 2, and as such need a Greenlight campaign to be successful in order to get it there.
