The mod you are trying to view has ceased development and consequently been archived. If you are a member of this mod, can demonstrate that it is being actively developed and will be able to keep this profile up to date with the latest news, images, videos and downloads, please contact us with all details and we will consider its re-activation.

Sven Co-op for Half-Life 2, sequel to the popular Sven Co-op mod for Half-Life, will add co-operative multiplayer (players vs. computer-controlled enemies) to Valve's "Half-Life 2" (Among other things).

Sven Co-op, the original Half-Life co-operative mod, is currently the most popular co-operative modification in the world, with over 500,000 recorded downloads of Sven Co-op version 3.0.

Sven Co-op for Half-Life 2 will benefit not only from Half-Life 2’s highly advanced engine, greater volume of content and extensive feature set, but also from new and innovative gameplay resulting from four years of experience with the genre. Among the new features will be the ability for mapmakers to create their own game modes, and features to make gameplay more rewarding.

"Our current plan is to release a beta version of the mod as soon as we have the HL2 single-player storyline working well co-operatively... giving you all something to play (and the mapping community something to work with) while we work on more advanced features."

Sorry kids but this mod is DEAD.
Anyone who wants to wish it away is free too but read this first.
>Mod DB has it logged as "ceased development" and has archived it.
>5 years since the last media update
>Main developer posted that there were no plans to resume work on the SCII version, several times. Citing among other things that HL2's lighting was bad, goldsrc was easier to make maps on and it had just as many players as HL2.

So, reread if you cannot believe me, but rest assured, it is dead. It will never be finished in the foreseeable future.

That being SAID, I cannot blame them for it, if you want your taste of Sven Coop play the original, they are still updating that, if you only have HL2, try Synergy or Obsidian Conflict, but don't keep F5'ing this page, it will never be finished.

"HL2's lighting was bad"
Source lighting is better than goldsrc lighting
"goldsrc was easier to make maps on"
but on Source anyone can make more advanced maps, and can be easly learned
"it had just as many players as HL2"
time, hardware and support will change this, Source engine have bigger system requiments, but not high as unplayable, Source engine have physics, advanced I/O system for maps, good lighting, and good scalable graphics, and getting more players...

edit:and source have bigger map support...

That was a direct quote from a member of the dev-team on their forums. Feel free to check it out for yourself, I never said I didn't think source was doable.
It's in the last news update thread.

They keep saying this is frozen until they finish the updates for the current Sven Coop, but every time they finish, they just start developing more updates. I don't know what that means for this, I'm just saying.

The main reason why they're not working on it anymore is because they want to finish off the first Sven. I hope anyway, but that's what I had heard.
