The team behind the great Half-Life 2 VR mod releases an Episode 1 version today

A mere six months after the release of their Half-Life 2 VR mod (opens in new tab), the devs over at the Source VR Mod Team are gearing up for the release of Half-Life 2: VR Mod – Episode 1 (opens in new tab) later today. Oh, and the Episode 2 version (opens in new tab) releases on April 6, a couple weeks from now. I’m beginning to think they’re just stunting on Valve’s development times at this point.

A goggles-based reimplementation of the first game in the Half-Life 2 Episodes trilogy (any day now!), the VR mod for HL2 Episode 1 is a “community-made adaptation of Valve’s episodic continuation of Half-Life 2, transformed into a fully roomscale Virtual Reality experience”. It’ll work on any VR headset that SteamVR supports. If, like me, you have no idea what headsets that means, here’s a list of the most prominent ones:

  • Valve Index (naturally)
  • HTC Vive
  • Oculus Rift (and Quest 2)
  • Windows Mixed Reality headsets
