Dystopia is a is a total conversion of the Source Engine that places players into tense combat situations in a high-tech world spanned by computer networks. As Punks or Corporate Mercenaries, players will fight through the physical world to gain access, via Jack-in Points, to cyberspace. Cyberspace is a three dimensonal representation of the world's network. In cyberspace, players must fight off enemy hackers and launch programs to gain control of critical systems and to affect the physical world. Gameplay progresses through inter-linked physical and cyberspace objectives, and players must work together to achieve victory for their team. Players will be immersed in action-packed battles, whether as a heavily augmented combat mercenary armed to the teeth with the latest in firepower and cybernetic implants, or as a twitch-reflex cyberdecker racing to infiltrate a cyberspace node.

One of the greatest mods concieved for the source engine, with a kickass dev team and fun gameplay, this mod is one of my persona top 5.

Dystopia will always have a special place in my heart, and has inspired me a lot through the years for my own project.


Best HL2 multiplayer mod.


Superb total conversion mod.
You can chose between one of 3 armors, from light to heavy, which influences your speed and obviously armor as well as which weapons you can equip and which or how many implants.
Weapons and implants allow you to load your character with just what you want to play.
Whatever you choose, you’ll work together with your team to do different objectives, advancing (or preventing the advance of the enemy) in the map.

In recent versions more helpful tips and navigation-path-help (shows where you have to go to next) definitely helps new players.

I you don’t like dying you can load-out to be a hacker, going into a 3-D hackspace, assisting your teammates there. Be it de- or activating security guns, opening or closing doors, or hacking an objective.
Of course, enemy hackers will try to prevent what you’re trying to do, so make sure to secure the controls with firewalls and the like, or break them to get to the controls.

In the end, it’s an extremely fun, highly customizable first person mod with great team-play in an interesting cyberpunk themed setting.
A must-play.


seems very very, legit!!

Best sourcemod blah blah blah.


One of the greatest games I've ever seen, though it's almost completely dead at the moment which is sad :(


I played it a few months back, I enjoyed the tutorial mode...but it could have used a single player campaign or something.


Enjoyed playing this mod waaaay back some years ago. Loved the inventive gameplay and the weapons choice.
Great job on the ideas/design (not sure who you stole it from, but it was well done hehehe ;)).

Good luck in the future guys and congrats for making the mod come out and be a success!


Dystopia is just Puny Human and his team of developers showing off. It is a multiplayer game where players choose one of two teams: the Punks, who usually attack map objectives, and the Corps, who usually defend. Players can then choose one of three classes: Light, which is the fastest class, but the weakest; Medium, balanced between health and speed, and has more armor than a Light; and Heavy, a robot which is slowest and strongest of all three classes. Based on their class, players choose one of four weapons, including dual pistols, a tesla cannon, and a minigun. They can also choose a variety of accesories to help them in combat. The game's killer feature is the introduction of Cyberspace. Players can access Cyberspace from terminals located in various paces around the real world, referred to as "Meatspace". They require a Cyberdeck implant. Once inside, they can manipulate various objects in Meatsace, such as doors, through access terminals, which can be defended with forcefields and passwords. While a player is in Cyberspace, his "Meatsack", or player in Meatspace, is vunerable to attack. All of the games features were addicting and I could not stop playing this game for six straight days and nights. A must-have mod for any gamer.


Absolutely excellent game, "The Hidden" was also a great mod by a french team.

UoL and others should do LAN games for these old source mods like PVK2, Day of Defeat:Source, the "Hidden" and Dystopia. All great source mods, Goldeneye:Source was fantastic too
