As you know, Nvidia will not be limited to reprinting the Quake 2 RTX, planning to offer many classic games with real-time lightning tracking support. This will be done by the Lightspeed Studios division, whose team has begun to actively replenish. Meanwhile, one of the Half-Life fans, hidden under the pseudonym Vect0R, decided to show what the cult shooter's relaunch with RayTracing support would look like.
The enthusiast has adapted the features of the original game to a format compatible with the Quake 2 RTX engine. In the end, he was able to add lightning tracing to various locations. Unfortunately, there's no doubt about launching a full fan mod for Half-Life. “Although Quake and Half-Life are similar, some things work very differently than Half-Life,” says Vect0R.
The work took a few months for the fan, and its result can be found in the demo above. Note that if Nvidia still launches Half-Life RTX, for comfortable high-resolution gaming, you will need a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card or its successor. In Quake 2 RTX, the current flagship "green" delivers about 50-60 fps at 2560×1440 only.
