Half-Life and Far Cry fans, here is something really interesting for you today. Modder ‘SanktPerkele’ has recreated the intro sequence from Half-Life: Alyx in Far Cry 5. Not only that, but this custom map is currently available for download.
This custom map mixes Half-Life: Alyx with Far Cry 5. As such, you’ll explore a part of City 17, and fight enemies from Far Cry 5. Naturally, you’ll also have access to Far Cry 5 weapons. It’s a pretty cool but simple concept, that most Half-Life fans will find interesting. I mean, those that don’t have a VR headset and cannot play the original version of Half-Life Alyx.
Now after watching this, I’d really want to see Half-Life Alyx in other engines. I mean, it would be cool to see a custom map in CRYENGINE or Unreal Engine 4. Seriously, an Unreal Engine 4 custom map with native Ray Tracing would be so cool.
But anyway, as said this Half-Life Alyx custom map for Far Cry 5 is available for download. If you don’t want to download it, you can go ahead and take a look at the following video.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
