Ambitious Half-Life: Alyx mod Leviathan brings a whole new adventure

A new adventure from some of the community’s best modders

Valve’s catalog has been modded again and again, and has even given birth to iconic titles like Garry’s Mod and The Stanley Parable. Now the modding community is taking on the studio’s most recent release, Half-Life: Alyx, to build on the game’s world and characters and deliver a whole new narrative adventure. It’s called Half-Life Alyx: Leviathan, and we got a full eight-minute gameplay demo during today’s PC Gaming Show.

We got a look at some close encounters, tense shootouts, and even a brief cameo by the ever-iconic Gordon Freeman. Leviathan looks indistinguishable from the real Half-Life: Alyx experience, and it looks like it’s shaping up to be a must-play for anyone with a VR headset.

The project was created by modders FMPONE and Corey Laddo, and is set to release sometime in 2022 on Steam.
