3D artist Liam Tart has been experimenting with Unreal Engine 4 and decided to recreate Half-Life 2’s Apartment 17 in Epic’s engine. Liam Tart had previously worked on Alien: Isolation, and this recreation is most probably a way to show his artistic abilities (for portfolio purposes).
As you may have expected, Tart used custom high-resolution textures that are similar to those used in Half-Life 2. And thanks to Unreal Engine 4, this scene has transformed into an amazing environment.
Now if only there was a proper HL2 remaster that could take advantage of modern-day engines or a game in the HL universe with the number “3” in it.
Enjoy and kudos to Alt-Tab for spotting it!
