The ambitious LEVITATION mod for Half-Life: Alyx officially releases, adding a new story with hours of content, all for free.
After two years of work, Half-Life: Alyx LEVITATION is finally available to the public. The mod adds a new story to the game that follows up where the vanilla title left off.
Half-Life: Alyx is the latest entry to the Half-Life franchise, acting as a prequel to Half-Life 2. While the game created some controversy among fans by shifting to VR, the title was ultimately applauded by fans & critics alike, even despite the never-ending wait for Half-Life 3.
LEVITATION is a Half-Life: Alyx game mod created by a team lead by FMPONE & CoreyLaddo, featuring a br& new campaign that’s estimated to last between 3-5 hours. Although the mod released its first teaser in April, it’s been in development for quite some time. CoreyLaddo, best known for his S2FM G-Man videos on YouTube, stated that the team wanted to “create something comparable in quality to Valve’s Half-Life: Alyx.” A new trailer featuring some gameplay was shared to commemorate the mod’s release.
Half-Life Alyx: LEVITATION puts players back in Alyx Vance’s shoes as she attempts to unravel an oddity in Sector X of City 17. A floating building & two missing resistance members causes Alyx to go an investigate for herself, & based on the mod’s trailer, finding the answers isn’t going to be an easy or simple task. Alyx will have to fight her way though Combine forces with nothing but her wits, tools, & Russell’s aid. The mod is available for free to anyone who owns the original game, via the Steam Workshop.
For interested players who haven’t checked out Half-Life: Alyx yet, now is a good time to change that. The game is currently on sale on Steam, though players will still need to use a VR headset to play the game. The VR experience was optimized for the Valve Index & its controllers, but players can use any PC-compatible headset, including the Meta Quest 2.
Fans of Valve’s games have created a nearly endless quantity of art, mods, & tributes to the games the company has produced over the years. Unlike many game developers, Valve is quite open to mods being produced for its games, like the Half-Life 2 VR conversion mod released earlier in 2022. Although the series went quiet for a very long time prior to Alyx‘s release, it’s clear that the fan fervor for more of Gordon Freeman’s adventures hasn’t died down. Only time will tell if Valve steps up & releases more stories from the Half-Life universe, but fans behind projects like LEVITATION will be there to offer new material when Valve doesn’t.
Half-Life: Alyx is available now on Steam.
