Half Life Classic feature

Half-Life gets a Full Path/Ray Tracing Mod, available now for download

Modder ‘sultim_t’ has released a must-have mod for all Half-Life fans. As the title suggests, this mod brings real-time full path tracing to Valve’s classic first-person shooter.

sultim_t is the man behind the Path Tracing mods for Doom, Serious Sam TFE and Quake. This is an incredible mod and below you can find a video that showcases it in action. The fact that the modder has made it without using RTX Remix is also something that impresses me.

Now I have to be honest here; I’d prefer a full Path Tracing Mod for Black Mesa. Contrary to Doom and Quake, the original Half-Life has not aged well. Moreover, the game’s classic textures do not hold up well. In short, this mod is not as transformative as the RT Mod for Doom and Quake.

But anyway, you can go ahead and download the mod from here.

Have fun!
