Enormous NeoTokyo Update Released

NeoTokyo, the huge Half-Life 2 modification that takes place in a futuristic Japanese setting, is gaining a whole lot of steam — literally. After its initial release in 2009, the game was recently greenlit by mandate into Steam’s Greenlight program. Now, the developers have just released a big update for the game, including weapon re-models, darker Jinrai skins, more readable HUD icons and the fixing of the left lean exploit. For all the updates, check out the Changelog below.

If that weren’t enough, game composer Ed Harrison is finishing up more music to be released in the near future — which as always should prove worth listening to in-game or not.

Inspired by similar anime titles like Ghost in the Shell and Akira, NeoTokyo features gameplay similar to Counter-Strike and has been heralded as one of the best modifications ever created.
