Blue Shift 2 is a Half Life 2 modification started by GMan003. It quickly gained support through its birth-forum, Facepunchstudios. Growing too large for the regular forums, the group started the Blue Shift 2 forums, which are still gaining support. Many positions are still available so if you meet the requirements, feel free to ask.
---
In this game, a sequel to Gearbox's Blue Shift, you play as Barney Calhoun, an ally throughout much of Half-Life 2.

It is built on the Half-Life 2 engine, Source.
Half-Life 2 is required to play.
Is not yet compatible with XBox, XBox360, PS3 or Linux versions of Half-Life 2.

I don't get trying to do Blue Shift 2 unofficially, considering "Blue Shift 1" is VALVe's title. Also considering this is under no permission from VALVe as well.

Sadly Blueshift 2 would've been a potential sequel, if Valve didn't abandoned the "valve episodic" contents (I mean that's understandable for them cancelling it I don't blame it.), a lot of peoples were trying to do "Opposing Force 2" well and it exactly didn't reach the light of day. :(

VALVe is supposed to give LEGITIMATE allowance to do Blue Shift to someone, like Gearbox. Now it also has to appear on Steam as well. Hopefully this makes sense, and of course it's OK that they started the mod themselves, but they do need permission still. Otherwise it's probably logical it's unofficial. But I had to say anyhow.

Hi From the year 2021 everyone lol. Update: there appear to be two different versions of this demo. The 1st where you start out in a room with a teleporter, and I can't seem to do anything. The 2nd demo is on a train, and has 5-10 minutes of really fun gameplay.

I have a (Dumb) question about the first demo: Is this mod more than just the first room...i'm stuck in the first room, how do you activate the teleporter?

Update: As I stated earlier, I found a second version of Blue shift 2. This second demo takes place on a train. (P.S. you have to deactivate one of the advanced display settings, otherwise the interior of the train is missing all of it's textures and everything appears white). You fight your way from car to car, and the demo lasts about 5+ minutes. Its pretty cool, too bad it was never finished.

So, that first Half Life Blue Shift demo I played is a seperate demo. In that one I don't think you can actually do anything and leave the room and use the teleporter. Anyone else know anything about that version??

Hi Guys, Dumb question from the year 2021 lol: I'm stuck at the begginning of this Mod, in the first room. Is there any way to plug in the teleporter and use it or escape the first room?

Thanks!

I wish someone will make a new Blue Shift 2 mod where it takes place during the Seven Hour War and how Barney Calhoun went undercover at the Civil Protection Teams to save Gordon Freeman from boarding the train to Nova Prospekt and meeting a horrible fate in the depths of the complex.

Unless someone already made a similar mod to my idea.
