Modder ‘Cobalt-57’ has announced that Half-Life Absolute Zero will release on February 12th, 2019. In case you weren’t aware of, Half-Life: Absolute Zero is a mod dedicated to recreating the pre-release versions of Half-Life. The team aims to recreate the art-style and chapters featured off in Half-Life builds from early to mid 1998, featuring all the chapters, monsters and weapons that never made it into the final build.
In Half-Life Absolute Zero, players will now be able to experience Communications Center, the military camp in Surface Tension, and they will also get to fight cut enemies like the Human Sergeant, the Panthereye, Stukabat, along with cut weapons such as the Chumtoad.
While there is a demo for Half-Life Absolute Zero to try, it’s really old (almost one year old) and does not represent the quality of the final version. Since then, the team has enhanced various parts of the mod to be more polished and listened to several pieces of feedback in-order to make the experience better.
In order to celebrate this announcement, the team has also released a brand new trailer that you can find below!
