This mod allows you to play the Half-Life campaign in co-op mode, available for download

Modder ‘Hiems’ has released a pretty cool mod for the first Half-Life game. As its title suggests, Half-Life: Coop allows you to play the campaign of Valve’s classic shooter in co-op mode.

Contrary to other co-op mods like Svencoop or DC coop, Half-Life: Coop does not change important aspects about the game. In other words, the objective of this mod is to be compatible with the servers of Half-Life 1 and keep it as vanilla as possible. As such, this is a must-have mod for all purists Half-Life fans out there.

Half-Life: Coop version 1.0 is only 56MB in size and you can download it from here. Do note that this initial version does not contain the final boss (Nihilanth). Still, it’s worth mentioning that the modder aims to add more improvements for cooperative mode via new updates.

The modder has also released a trailer for his co-op mod that you can find below. Needless to say that it looks retro-stunning, and we are pretty sure that this is something that will please a lot of Half-Life fans. As such, we strongly suggest downloading it, especially if you haven’t re-played HL1 for a while.

Have fun everyone!
