Precursor Released

News & Rumors Other

There’s been a sort of mod drought in recent months.

But Precursor is looking to remedy that.

Precursor Released

Or, if you prefer, “Half-Life: Precursor”.

Precursor allows you to re-enter the Half-Life universe, 10 months before Gordon’s return to the world. The Combine is cracking down on the Resistance, and you’re going to have to do the usual: Run, think, shoot, live. But at the same time, a mysterious force (read as the G-Man and its employers) is working towards ends unknown.

Just released, Precursor will only last you a maximum of 2 hours and a half, with a rather abrupt ending that leaves you wanting more. But trust us, it’ll be one hell of a 2 hours and a half. Quality over quantity, eh?

From its excellent level design to its intriguing story, aided by strong voice acting, Precursor is a surprising case of a modding masterpiece.

Try it out. You’ll only be losing a bit of hard drive space for what is a strong experience.

Check Precursor out at ModDB or at PlanetPhillip.


  1. I’m new to mod downloads. Will this play on Macs?

    • I’m sorry, but I’m afraid it won’t. Valve has yet to release the Source SDK 2009, which features Mac support that was added to most of Valve’s games in mid-2010. As such, mod developers cannot create Mac-compatible mods.

  2. This mod has been fantastic so far! What I like the most is that they took pains to make it realistic in the sense that weapons and ammo aren’t just lying around, they are only in places that would make sense, all the rooms make sense (ie not just random underground rooms, rooms that actually serve a purpose. Big thumbs up, this will satiate some of my source enginer hunger until Portal 2 comes out.

  3. I have been getting some reports of broken URL’s. They were working fine on my end, but I have noticed some issues. I’ve reset the links, so they should be working now. Let me know if you have any problems right here, in the comments section, as I do not operate the Twitter and I don’t look at it very often.

  4. This is a pretty cool mod !
    Nothing new or innovative but still worth the time.

  5. Just finsihed it. Took me around 1:45-2 hours to complete and i thoroughly enjoyed it. Very good.

  6. The mod is made in a very professional way and has well-made maps, the only part that I didn’t like is the part where you have to run up a hill to the bridge through a lot of combine, to me it was almost impossible without running just past them and hoping for the best.

  7. Hmmm. i’m gona download this overnight and check it out tomorow! Thank you for the recomendation Vic!
