The now-infamous mental horror demo returns as a HL: A Workshop mod.
Launched in 2014 on the PlayStation 4 as a demonstration for a now-cancelled Silent Hill sequel being created by Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid collection, Death Stranding) in cooperation with celebrated film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water, Pacific Rim), P.T. (“Playable Teaser”) made waves upon its launch, providing PS4 players a refreshing take on the horror video gaming style with a distinctive psychological experience that was as scary as it was gorgeous.
After Silent Hills was officially terminated in 2015, the demo was ultimately removed from the PlayStation Store by Konami in spite of forthright arguments by the gaming neighborhood. Thanks to a brand-new mod for Valve’s Half-Life: Alyx, nonetheless, players currently have the opportunity to revisit the haunted suv residence and navigate its limitless knotting corridors in VR … type of.
Last month Valve launched Workshop support for their highly-anticipated VR FPS, Half-Life: Alyx, allowing independent designers to access the game’s property library in order to develop their very own levels, structures, animations, models, and products and share them with the SteamVR community. Despite having just been readily available for much less than a month, the HL: A Workshop is already packed with an impressive number of personalized maps as well as modifications. This includes a production by modder AmbientDruth that recreates the initial P.T. experience with incredible quantity of information.
Available for download currently using the Half-Life: Alyx Workshop,”PT”appears to feature most of the components that made the initial PT so scary. With some crafty advancement, AmbientDruth has actually taken care of to include recognizable aspects such as the knotting hallways, the audio from the haunting female apparition, Lisa; and the report about a gruesome family murder.
While the visuals aren’t fairly as remarkable as those featured in the original P.T.– which is understandable thinking about P.T. was essentially a technology trial including a solitary suv residence– Valve’s Source 2 engine does an impressive job at producing an unsettling setting in which to check out. Moving on, AmbientDruth will be making numerous updates in the type of added audio hints as well as props, various lighting modifications, as well as “much more creepy triggers.”
Those interested can download the PT mod completely free via the Half-Life: Alyx Workshop. While you’re there you’ll certainly intend to take a look at some of the other user-created tasks presently available for download. Several of my faves until now include Jedi Alyx– Lightsaber Training, Portal 2– Speed Ramp, as well as Belomorskaya Station simply to name a few. Image Credit: Valve Corp.
