Half-Life 2: Retaliation is a singleplayer Half-Life 2: Episode Two modification. It brings you into the familiar world of Half-Life 2 just as the antlion invasion of Nova Prospekt takes place. You step into the shoes of a notorious Rebel soldier who has been held captive in Nova Prospekt for months. During the invasion, he escapes his prison cell and goes on a long and violent mission to retaliate against the Combine, and aid the Resistance in the revolution. Travel through brand-new areas in Nova Prospekt, fight your way through three never-before-seen locations in the Half-Life 2 universe, witness the beginning of The Uprising, and ultimately carry out your retaliation.

Introduction


Hello everyone! I'm glad to be back writing another news post on this 29th of July, 2011. Its been several weeks since our last update, and boy has stuff really changed! The several big topics that we are here to inform you on include

  • Half-Life 2: Retaliation featured on ModdingToday.com
  • Our brand-new, sleek-looking ModDB page
  • The brand-new SMG1 weapon model
  • Screenshots and information on the status of the mapping of Chapter 2 and Chapter 3

Well, I don't know where to start. So, let's just jump in and get on with it!

ModdingToday's Review-Preview


I recently had a chat with one of ModdingToday's editor, and I asked him if he would like a play a closed beta of Half-Life 2: Retaliation. He was absolutely thrilled, and gladly accepted. I emailed him the beta, he played it, and boy did he love it! He talked about what he saw and reviewed what was presented to him(not everything was =D). To read the full feature yourself, click on this link now!

Our New ModDB Page


I'm sure at some point or another you guys noticed our new and redesigned ModDB profile page. Do you like it? We feel it has a much more professional and sleek design then the layout before, and I hope you feel the same! You don't want to know how much time it took to get it right.

The New SMG1


We have replaced the old SMG1 weapon model with something totally more high-definition and sleek, as well as realistic. It now has a real under-barrel grenade launcher as well as high-definition holographic sight. While it isn't strict to canon, you can absolutely see the resemblance and think of it as a high-definition SMG1. Take a look for yourself:

But now, we need YOUR response. We want to know which SMG1 model you like better.

Status Update On Chapters 2 and 3


We have some great screenshots today of a close-to-final Chapter2_Section3. Its taken a long time and plenty of work to get this right(I mapped it all myself) for the scripting, and the detailing, and the garage battle as well! But more on that later, here are the screenshots:

Things are coming along very nicely. Playtesting shouldn't take too long, and we can begin work on Chapter2_Section4. Chapter 3 on the other hand hasn't made much progress. We've been having a bit of trouble finding the right details and the right textures to use for the map. We'll sort it out and get screenshots soon.

Our Farewell


Well, that's all for this news post folks! We hope you had a wonderful time looking at all of our progress, and we'll back soon to bring you even more screenshots and videos of our progress.

And as for the SMG1 weapon models, please comment below and let us know what YOU WANT to see in the mod! The old or new SMG1 model, the decision is YOURS!

Until next time, folks!

New pictures and models look very nice, I absolutely cannot wait to play this. (New SMG looks cool in my opinion, but I don't have a preference really.)

I can happily say...absolutely nothing critiquing the current news and screens. Everything looks quite good and I'm pleased as well to see such consistent progress. I'll cast my vote for the new SMG1 - a sharp piece of work ( new sounds too ? ). Keep it coming fellas and all the best with future production.

The only criticism I have for your maps are that the walls are too boring and simplistic, I mean I know it's Nova Prospekt, but Valve tries to make the architecture slightly less boxy. Apart from that the gameplay and new models look perfect. I'm not one to talk, since I didn't finish my competition map for Overwatch months back and you're here making a full campaign, I envy you Joker.

EDIT: Oh, and the new SMG looks cooler.

Sorry, but I found the other new Smg 1 model way better than this overloaded version. That looks like mounting a laser sight and the hand grip of an AR on a Smg.

I like the new SMG model, but I really hope it has a visible reloading animation. Other then that, it looks great!

New SMG Hands Down, No Competition there and out of Curiosity: Possible Use of the Holographic Sight?

No ironsights, sorry. We just wanted it to look more of a high-detailed version of the SMG, which according to unanimous community response, it is.

I think you should get the "extended mag" version for the w_model, as the smg just looks awkward if it is supposed to hold a 45 round mag.
