The TeaserPlay YouTube channel has created another Unreal Engine 5 demo that shows what a Half-Life 2 remake could look like if it was built on Epic’s latest engine. Valve first published the award-winning Half-Life 2 in 2004, and this iconic first-person shooter was built on the company’s Source engine. Since the release of Half-Life 2, the game has been re-released on various platforms, but there has not yet been an official full-fledged remake.
It’s unlikely fans will get an official Half-Life 2 remake anytime soon, if at all. Valve sells the original Half-Life 2 through its Steam mall, and it left the fan-favorite franchise dormant for years, sadly leaving the story on an unresolved cliffhanger. VR game Half-Life: Alyx was the first new Half-Life game in 13 years, and while it received widespread critical acclaim, it’s safe to say there are plenty of fans who want a more traditional continuation of the series.
Maybe Valve will create a new traditional Half-Life game someday, maybe not, but for now, fans can get an idea of what such a project with modern graphics might look like. TeaserPlay’s latest Unreal Engine 5 demo focuses on Half-Life 2, recreating familiar environments and upgrading character models like Gordan Freeman and the mysterious G-Man.
In the video, Half-Life 2 fans can see upgraded enemy models, Gordan’s crowbar, gravity gun, and more.
At the time of this writing, it is unknown what new video game, if any, Valve is working on. The company’s latest release is Aperture Desk Job, a spin-off of the Portal franchise created specifically for the new handheld Steam Deck. Aperture Desk Job came out in March of this year, and Valve hasn’t announced what video games it might release in the future.
While fans don’t know what Valve’s next new game they’ll be able to play, they can at least look forward to an update to the old version. It was recently announced that Portal will receive an RTX update this November as free DLC for those who already own the game, which should greatly improve the graphics of the classic first-person puzzle game.
