The Netherlands-based Jeannot van Berlo, who posts to the forum under the name Logithx, has released three huge screenshots of his project, saying he rebuilt everything from the ground up for his Unreal Engine passion project, with the exception of Dr. Breen's imposing face and the Combine insignia.
He now intends to recreate City 17 in Unreal Engine 4.
"I'm working every day to port this to the new Unreal Engine 4," he said, adding that "there's lots of work that was unfinished not to mention that I have to redo all the materials and many textures because of the awesome physically-based shading in Unreal Engine 4. There's a lot more content in this level that I haven't shown yet and I probably won't until it's all finished."
The screenshots have caused quite a stir, for obvious reasons--they look absolutely fantastic.
Half-Life 2 celebrates its tenth anniversary later this year.
