Mark my words, the latest fad in this gaming generation won’t just be to re-release older games onto new systems, but to actually spruce them up. We’ve already seen Tomb Raider get a definitive makeover. And honestly, I’d love to see Half-Life get a visual upgrade along these lines.
Polycount user Logithx (via Dual Shockers) knocked out the following recreation of City 17 and it’s opening train station level, using the Unreal Development Kit. But Logithx isn’t done yet. The modeller wants to port the stage over to the Unreal Engine 4, which will most likely add all new levels of details. Click to embiggen, and see for yourself:
Seeing as Half-Life Episode 3 or Half-Life 3 will never ever be made, this just might be the next best thing. I’m keen to see the finished project on this upgraded retro tour.
