Half-Life 2 gets official Oculus Rift VR support

Valve classic gets 3D beta test via Steam

Valve has released a beta for Half-Life 2 with official support for the stereoscopic Oculus Rift VR headset.


According to instructions in the announcement, to get the beta you need to, "Open the properties for HL2 in Steam, set your command line to "-vr", and opt-in to the SteamPipe beta,"

The final version is pinned for a general release in the coming weeks, but for now Valve says it'd appreciate feedback on bugs and errors that users encounter.
