Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection has recently appeared on the Steam database. Interestingly, fans who have received approval from Valve are working on it.
Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection coming to Steam
Half-Life has recently come back from the dead with the Alyx spin-off. The title, exclusive for VR, was warmly welcomed and gave players hope for almost Episode Three. Valve probably still can’t count to the third episode, because not a sequel is on the way, but a remaster of HL2.
Thanks to SteamDB, the first news about Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection was leaked to the web. Interestingly, the project is not created by Valve. Tyler McVicker informed that fans are working on refreshing the game.
However, this is not a project completely independent of Valve, because the famous publisher agreed to its production and the Remastered Collection will appear on Steam. Not just anyone is working on refreshing it.
McVicker also confirmed that the remaster is created by the group of players that created the Half-Life 2 update. This is a six-year project that improves the setting of the iconic title. The update is already years old, so apparently, fans of the game want to beautify it even more.
So far, we don’t know too many details of this collection. Tyler McVicker says the project will refresh both the base HL2 and additional episodes. Nevertheless, there are still no details about the scale of the improvements.
The users are speculating that fans will move HL2 to the newer Source 2 engine, though at the moment this is still not officially announced. We’ll see what happens.
