The Half-Life 2 VR Mod is out on Steam, so you can finally, literally, pick up that can

Valve showed us what the world of Half-Life could look like through a VR headset with Half-Life: Alyx. Now some hard-working modders are ready to show us even more. Half-Life 2: VR Mod entered open beta today and is now playable for free on Steam, so tell Gordon Freeman to take off his glasses and strap a computer to his face.

In the mod, which is compatible with the Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift, you can play Half-Life 2 from start to finish in VR. It’s a beta, so the mod isn’t 100% feature-complete and you may run into bugs (and not just the antlion variety), but if you’ve got a headset I can’t think of any reason why you wouldn’t want to jump into Gordon Freeman’s HEV suit and start throwing things around with the gravity gun. Plus, now you can literally pick up that can. Won’t the City 17 metrocops be impressed!
