Re-enter the Half Life Universe and revisit City 17 in the time before Freeman, in this fan made single-player mod. The Resistance is threatened by a decisive Combine assault, and as a wanted Resistance member you will need to fight to escape from the Combine's clutch. At the same time, a mysterious force is working towards ends unknown...
Precursor has been released and the reception has been good overall. We are of course keeping our eyes and ears open for any and all feedback- and bug reports. If you haven't submitted feedback yet, please do! It helps us a lot, I can assure you. If you still haven't played Precursor, check out the trailer below and see if it looks interesting! It can be downloaded from our page here or at www.precursormod.com
In the coming weeks, we'll gather all the feedback that has been submitted and make a list of changes we'd like to make. These changes will only be tweaks, bug fixes and balance change; we won't overhaul the content in any sizeable way (i.e. no new levels). These changes will then be implemented and go into a Precursor 1.1 version which we hope will be the final and definitive version of Precursor
As for the longer-term future, there probably won't ever be a Precursor 2. Sorry to the people who really wanted it but creating single player mods like Precursor take a lot of time and as a developer, you want to branch out and create something new and different. And since this is just a lowly nerd mod project, there's no publisher breathing down our necks, expecting a sequel.
Furthermore, if you are interested in knowing more about Precursor or have a weird fetish for the word "uhm...", which you'll hear a lot of, you can check out a interview about Precursor here: Planetphillip.com It's me, Patrick Murphy, being asked about the mod and it's levels, which I created. Check it out!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Precursor. We love games like Half-Life 2: Episode Two that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
