NeoTokyo video: max settings at 2560x1440 on LPC

PC Gamer at

NeoTokyo, the Half-Life 2-mod-turned-full-game, may be running on the old horse that is the Source engine, but it still sports some lovely cyberpunk skylines. It also shows that we can throw the Large Pixel Collider, our inconceivably beefy gaming rig, onto the back of that old horse and squeeze out every bit of cyberpunk goodness we can get at 2560x1440 and ultra settings.

Half-Life 2 mod NeoTokyo released as standalone package on Steam

Competitive first-person shooters love to depict the gritty 'realism' of soldiers locked in an endless war of explosions and swearing. NeoTokyo isn't entirely different, but supplements its urgent shooting with cyberpunk and a nice soundtrack. After being successfully Greenlit in 2012, the Half-Life 2 mod is finally available to download directly from Steam—now entirely free from its SDK dependencies.

If you query your cortical data node, you'll recall NeoTokyo was chosen along with 20 other titles for Steam Greenlight's second round of approvals back in October. The mod itself has been around for much longer, originally appearing in simple deathmatch form for Unreal Tournament 2004 before transitioning to Source four years ago. That also coincidentally marks the last update for it—until today, when developer Studio Radi-8 released a fresh version out of nowhere (which is apparently becomingathing now) adding eight new maps and higher-quality weapon models.
