Wake up, Mr Freeman. It's time to rejoin the Resistance and head deep into the world of Half-Life 2 yet again, as a fan-made remaster has been given the green light by Valve.

Who Is Behind The Half-Life 2 Remaster?

It's been 17 years since we blew up our last barnacle, or splattered a headcrab, for that matter. So it's probably about time we returned (because, let's face it, we're not getting Half-Life 3 any time soon). The only problem with Half-Life 2, as an otherwise perfect game, is that it is dated. Valve has always been pretty open to fan-made projects in the past, so the fact that they've okayed this latest project isn't entirely surprising. 

Those behind this remaster have actually worked on things like this in the past. Ever heard of the 2015 Half Life 2: Update Mod? Well, this project is by the same people.

What Do We Know About The Half-Life 2 Remaster?

A SteamDB listing has named the project Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection, with a note from staff saying: "this is a mod from Filip Victor, not Valve related". Well, I'm glad that's been cleared up. 

Filip himself also commented: "The new version will put HL2: Update/Episodes to shame. But sry no release date tho."

Earlier this year The Last Of Us director, Neil Drukmann, was asked by a fan on Twitter about what IP (aka intellectual property aka game) he would like to make a game for. In order, Drukmann replied: "1) Punisher 2) Half Life 3) Ghost Rider 4) Hotline Miami 5) Cowboy Bebop."

In our dreams would this actually come to fruition, but it shows how much popularity the series had/continues to have even 20 years on. So come on, Gabe, give us the goods.

At least we'll have the remaster to keep us occupied until Valve does eventually drop a part three.
