Half Life 2 recreation in Unreal Engine 4 looks spectacular (screenshots)

Half Life 2 Unreal Engine 4

We’re all eagerly waiting for the Half Life 3 announcement. But we’ve been waiting for many years, and the way it looks, the game won’t be announced any time soon. But we still have Half Life 2 to look back to.

Talented 3D artist Liam Tart, who worked on Alien Isolation, took upon himself to recreate some of Half Life 2’s iconic settings in Unreal Engine 4. And the results from his first scene are spectacular.

Tart’s ongoing project has resulted in one scene so far: the Apartment 17 scene where players really start getting into the story of HL2.

Tart uses new textures and effects while staying true to Valve’s original setting and atmosphere, and the end result is something any HL2 fan will be familiar with. Only in Unreal Engine 4, it looks an order of magnitude better.
