Alix fights the Alliance in the setting of the cult immersive-sim.
User wim.buytaert. 1988 created a mod for Half-Life: Alyx that sends the player to the underwater city of Rapture from Bioshock. The mod was released at the end of September, but the major media paid attention to it only now.
In Return to Rapture, the story of the two universes is intertwined together. The Alliance discovers the location of the city and aims to learn the secrets of plasmids and gain information on the technology of their creation. Players in the role of Alix need to stop the Alliance and get to the plasmids first.
There are no plasmids in the game – the main weapon is Alix’s gravity gloves. Despite this, the modder has implemented many references to the Bioshock universe in the game, adding various audio diaries, working vita cameras and vending machines characteristic of the underwater city.
Return to Rapture takes about 25 minutes to complete. The mod can be downloaded from the Steam Workshop.
