Half-Life 2 fans can now download Mission Improbable by Magnar 'Insta' Jenssen, a three-episode single-player campaign mod for Valve's HL: Episode 2 which continues the story of Gordon Freeman.
The adventure see the former Black Mesa scientist tasked with reactivating a Resistance listening post "which naturally doesn't go quite as intended".
As you can see from the trailer below Mission Improbable is visually impressive, and seems to be packed with a variety of gameplay too.
According to Valve fansite Lambdagen the first two sections have had a visual overhaul, while the third episode combines (pardon the pun) to make Mission Improbable "one of the greatest Half-Life mods of all time".
As noted by the site, previous Half-Life 2 modder Adam Foster was hired by Valve to work on what was then Half-Life 2: Episode 3.
