    Half Life 2 update


    Half-Life 2: Update Coming to Steam - IGN

    The Valve-approved fan-created mod, dubbed Half-Life 2: Update, will be releasing on Steam tomorrow, completely free of charge.The 7GB add-on serves up a number of visual enhancements, including improved lighting effects and more detailed environmental textures. A number of bugs that plagued the original PC release have been fixed as well.
    Earlier this month at GDC, Valve announced it was experimenting with Half-Life in virtual reality. Whether or not the beloved first-person shooter franchise will ever make its way to VR remains to be seen, but the prospect of such an experience sounds awfully promising.


    You can download Half-Life 2: Update on March 27, directly from Steam's online store. Watch the comparison video below to see the difference between the original Half Life 2, and the updated version.

    The graphics are cool, but that just reminded me how good that and the episodes were. Going to have to put the laptop down and fire up the gaming machine again.

    Truly is still an awesome game. Do you know if it is updated on steam or a patch.

    It is a standalone you can download from steam. 7gb according to the article. I have been thinking about playing it again, now I will. Updated the first post to answer that for anyone who looks.

    Thanks. Going to start the update after work. Been about 5 years since I played it last. Prefect timing.

    It worked on 8, but failed to launch in W10. Other games launch okay, but not HL2 Update
