A new mod for Half-Life 2, titled ‘Half-Life 2: Update’, is heading over to Steam tomorrow. The Valve approved fan-made effort does what you would expect, it updates Half-Life 2, bringing better lighting, effects, textures and some bug fixes to the classic shooter.
This will be the final, finished version of Half-Life 2: Update, which has been available outside of the Steam store for some time now. The project has been in the works since 2009, so this release has been on the way for quite some time.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NI9aSFHJRO0′]
The mod’s original version added high dynamic lighting to the game but the group working on the project expanded and made improvements to all graphical features. The team did have some financial help in the form of sponsorships from EVGA, Nvidia and Origin PC.
The final version of the Half-Life 2: Update project features notes from the developers, detailing design, development and even the impact that Half-Life 2 had on the future of games at the time of its release.

KitGuru Says: If any of you have yet to play Half-Life 2 for some reason then this seems like the way to do it, the mod does seem to add a fair bit of extra detail to the game.
