Earlier this month, we informed you about a mod for Half-Life: Alyx that made the gameplay playable on keyboard and mouse. Created by modder ‘r57zone’, this non-VR mod for Half-Life: Alyx had a lot of potential. And today, we are happy to report that the modder has released a new version that lets you complete the entire game.
From what we know so far, this is the first mod (driver) that allows to fully complete the game. Thus, everyone can use it in order to play the game with mouse and keyboard, and without a VR headset.
In order to showcase this mod in action, r57zone released the following video. As we can see, this driver/mod assigns a lot of keys. Moreover, there is some tearing on the screen while moving the characters. I don’t know whether this is something that can be fixed in a future version.
Nevertheless, here we are today with a fully working non-VR mod for Half-Life: Alyx. You can download the mod from here. Its page also features all the keyboard and mouse control mapping, as well as instructions for installing it. Below you can also find a video that shows how you can install the mod.
Lastly, this is NOT the ideal way to play Half-Life: Alyx. Still, it’s at least an alternative way via which non-VR gamers can at least run this latest Half-Life game.
