Good news Oculus Fans, as Valve classic Half Life 2 has finally gotten the update you’ve been waiting for. The game will now support the recently released and much updated Oculus Rift DK2 headset thanks to a recent update and while I know many of you are still waiting for your DK2 (myself included) it’s is great to see the big AAA titles getting these updates.
If you already have your Oculus and you’re wondering how to get it working in the game, you need to go to Steam > Library > Tools, from there you need Steam VR > Properties > Beta and to make sure you’re opted into the beta. Once updated you’ll need to restart steam and will then find a VR setting in Half Life 2. You’ll also need to leave your Oculus Utility on and put the device in extended mode.
Also thank you Reddit for pointing out that the command line “-freq 75” will remove the blurriness from the game for those using DK2.
VR Half Life, should be enough to keep us entertained until Half Life 3… right?
Thank you /r/Oculus for providing us with this information.
