We know that as far as official support is concerned, Valve’s Team Fortress 2 is currently being supported by the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, and if you were looking forward to playing more of Valve’s games using the VR headset, you’re in luck as Half-Life 2 gets official support via the opt-in beta version. This was revealed by Joe Ludwig, the Valve programmer who worked on the development of Team Fortress 2 for the Oculus Rift.
However according to Ludwig, he claims that this version of the Half-Life 2 port is a bit more raw when compared to Team Fortress 2 when it was shipped, meaning that you might run into more bugs than you would have with Team Fortress 2, but then again considering it is a beta, bugs are to be expected. Ludwig revealed that the opt-in beta version with Oculus Rift support is expected to be shipped to everyone in a few weeks, so we guess gamers with the Oculus Rift will just have to be patient. So gamers, are you excited at playing Half-Life 2 on the Oculus Rift?
