One modder has used Half-Life: Alyx’s Source 2 engine to recreate the second Gordon Freeman enters into the City 17 courtyard at the beginning of Half-Life 2.

Modder Vect0R uploaded the fruits of their labour to YouTube, displaying the enhancements made since Half-Life 2’s unique Source engine from 2004.

The mod, which is at the moment a showcase demo that isn’t out there to the general public, has been within the works solely since March 24.

“I took the original map file and converted to Source 2 format and added to Half-Life: Alyx. In [the] process, I converted assets of Half-Life 2 to Half-Life: Alyx as well.” writes Vect0R within the description of the YouTube video. The modder additionally mentions that they had been restricted by the truth that Valve’s Source 2 SDK isn’t but public.
