New Half Life Alyx Non VR Mod makes the game playable by converting all basic gameplay mechanics

Last month, we informed you about the first non VR mod for Half-Life Alyx. And today, we are happy to present you another mod that makes the game playable on mouse and keyboard. Yeap, this mod has basically converted all of the VR gameplay mechanics to K&M.

Created by modder ‘r57zone’, this mod allows you to pull up objects (using the capabilities of the engine), reload weapons, fire weapons, and use a wrist pocket for an object. Basically, all of the gameplay mechanics of Half-Life: Alyx now work with a mouse and keyboard.

Do note that we still don’t know whether the full game can be finished with this mod. Moreover, this mod is behind a Patreon wall for its early version. The modder does plan to release a public version at a later date. In future versions, r57zone also aims to further polish these K&M gameplay mechanics.

You can find more details about this new non VR mod on its GitHub page. Naturally, we’ll be sure to let you know when the public version comes out.

Stay tuned for more!
