Half-Life is one of those games with such a die-hard community that they’re still modding the game 18 years after its launch. One of these mods has literally turned Half-Life 2 into a world that resembles the world of Doom (2016). Here’s everything that this new mod will bring to HL fans.
How did it happen?
Principally because the fans believe that Valve won’t launch a third edition of Half-Life, they keep modding the game, and the lastest mod developed by Velocity Punch has shown us a world that’s been inspired by Doom.
The newest trailer shows us some aspects of the pre-alpha build, and this mod receives the title of “Half-Life: Reamped”. The history takes place long time after the Black Mesa accident, and shows us a world plagued with desolation and chaos, ready for you to chime in and experience adrenaline to the fullest.
This mod also brings the game more “extreme” action, in case you prefer to exercise more violence in shooting games. And the demonic theme shown in the trailer really brings Half-Life 2 a different spin on a classic.
So you can watch it yourself and get an idea on what the game will look like, here you have the so-awaited trailer of Half-Life: Reamped:
When will Half-Life: Reamped Launch?
All we know is that this mod is in the making, but we do not have a clear release date. Fortunately, the trailer shows us that Half Life: Reamped is in full swing and we can expect it to launch in the next year (hopefully!). We’ll update this section when we know the answer.
What has Valve said about Half-Life: Reamped?
Valve has not really said anything about mods, and that includes Half-Life: Reamped. They have left this industry to flourish, because fans of Half-Life need new spins on the history since Valve has not shown interest in releasing a third edition.
Nonetheless, it’s worth mentioning that Valve registered a new software trademark on October 14, 2022. This gives us, Half-Life fans, some hope that they will finally release Half-Life 3.
What are some other great mods to play while we wait for Half-Life: Reamped?
Half-Life: Reamped still got ways to be fully finished, so in the meanwhile here you have some other excellent mods you can try to satisfy your HL needs:
- Half-Life: Opposing Force
- Afraid Of Monsters: Director’s Cut
- Half-Life: Life’s End
- Black Mesa
- Sven Co-op
- The Gate 2
