Do you remember the opening sequence of Half-Life 2? I bet you do if you have played Half-Life and its sequel Half-Life 2. Project 17, a group of modders who are going to use Half-Life: Alyx’s tools to recreate Half-life 2’s opening as a VR experience.
The entire opening chapter of Half-Life 2 is recreated within the Half-Life: Alyx’s by using mod engines and VR mode to make the game look modern and to support VR gameplay. The official website of Project 17 stated that the goal of the mod is to “recreate the iconic experiences from Valve Software’s Half-Life 2, rebuilt for VR.” It was also mentioned by the team that this isn’t just about recreation, but to provide tools for the Half-Life: Alyx modding community.
Project 17 is intended to recreate the “Point Insertion” chapter of Half-Life 2. Though the opening to Half-Life 2 may not hold the identical importance and reverence as Half-Life did but this doesn’t mean it hasn’t kept an equivalent impact. Check out the Project 17 Point Insertion announcement trailer.
This is not the first time an attempt is made to recreate Half-Life 2 opening in Half-Life: Alyx, back in March after the release of Half-Life: Alyx another player attempted to recreate the opening in it. We don’t have a clue for now that when it will be released but Project 17 stated that it will be available to play when it’s ready.
