Half-life 2 has Oculus Rift support

Friday, 10th May 2013 05:04 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The opt-in beta version of Half-life 2 already supports your shiny new Oculus Rift headset.

Although there’s a mod which already enables Oculus Rift use, this one was developed by Valve, and is available via Steampipe, a new feature added to Source games last week. Instructions on how to access it are available on the Oculus Rift developer forums.

The VR mode is still being tested and has some known issues, so don’t expect it to be as smooth as Team Fortress 2′s.

Thanks, Polygon.

    I’ve just tried this and its awesome, enjoyed it more than Team Fortress 2 VR. The game feels like its made for Oculus with so many things to look around or up at.
