Half Life 3: Physics Test Video Demonstrates Pixar-Like Animation
And thankfully not in a CARS way.
Valve Software’s Half Life 3 is like a golden snitch at this point – it feels like it’s out there but constantly out of our reach. Valve has admitted to not knowing what to do about the sequel and until they get a clue, we’ll be admiring the various fan videos and experiments that come up, showcasing what could be.
One of those experiments includes an animation test from the first person perspective showing off some rather snazzy physics for Half Life. It’s a lot more equivalent to a Pixar movie in terms of the cinematic quality of the animation as D.O.G. and Gordon both transition swiftly between actions. It’s unlikely we’ll see animation like this in Half Life 3 but damn if it doesn’t look cool as hell.
Half Life 3 is yet to be officially revealed by Valve. There are rumours that it could be showcased at E3 2014 but then, there have been rumours for years about the same. As always, stay tuned.
