Valve?s Half-Life 3 is perhaps one of the most anticipated titles for the PC. The developer hasn?t even revealed their plans about the game yet but that isn?t stopping fans from clamoring for the game. However, players could soon opt to get their hands on a title that isn?t essentially the next entry in the series but is set in the same universe.
Half-Life: Prospekt is one of the few user created Half-Life mods that receive the approval of Valve, according to VG247. As such, Half-Life: Prospekt looks to be a promising take on the beloved RPG-shooter. The game by 25-year-old Richard Seabrook will come to Steam on Feb. 11.
Seabrook completed Half-Life: Propekt after 18 months of development. It?s a fan-made sequel to another third-party Half-Life title, Half-Life: Opposing Force by developer Gearbox. The game was made with Valve?s own Source engine and it saw success on Steam Greenlight and now fans will have access to the full game soon.
There are many single-player and multiplayer mods available for the Half-Life series, but very few of them actually get official approval from Valve. Prospekt is one of the mods Valve has seen fit to support, and it will see a release on Steam come February 11. The official description of the mod details a summary of the plot.
?Prospekt begins in the Nova Prospekt prison in the Half-Life universe. Gordon Freeman is slowly being overrun by soldiers in the prison, however unknown to him, his Vortigaunt allies manage to find some help from a forgotten hero.?
The standalone single-player game is roughly about the size of Half-Life 2: Episode One. There will be a total of 13 levels for players to explore in the entire duration of the story. The game will put players in shoes of US Marine Adrian Shepherd instead of Gordon Freeman.
