Half-Life: MMod gets a release on Steam

By - | Views: 28,978

Half-Life: MMod just released on Steam, a mod for the original Half-Life that overhauls many parts of it to create something that feels fresh.

Keeping most changes optional, the point is just to give a slightly more upgraded experience while sticking close to the original game. The point of it really is to add into the original game, giving you more options to get through it and to have a bit more fun. So it's quite the opposite of Black Mesa. So perhaps a good choice for those who want mostly vanilla with some added spice.

For me the next thing that would really captivate me is HL1/2 in VR and I know somebody was doing a HL2 VR on some level.

Seems like with Source 2 on the way and the CS2 trademark and rumors of being based on Source 2 that it would be in everyone's best interest if they target Source 2 at some point.
