Half-Life: Alyx – VR Prequel of Half-Life 2

Half-Life is probably one of the longest serving game franchises around, and there will be more to come!

Taken from Engadget After more than 12 years, Valve is officially returning to the Half-Life universe. Half-Life: Alyx is a “full-length” VR entry into the series — but if you were thinking we’d finally find out what happened after the events of Half-Life 2: Episode TwoI have some extremely disappointing news. Alyx will take place between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. For those of us who’ve been waiting for Valve to return to these games, it’s a bit of a bittersweet moment — the company undoubtedly knows how to make an excellent game, and the screenshots Valve shared certainly should get fans excited. But if you’re looking for closure after the mega-cliffhanger that was Episode Two, you’ll have to keep waiting.

 

 

Enough about what Alyx isn’t, though. The game is set for release on Steam in March of 2020, just four short months from now, and will work with all PC-compatible VR headsets. Pre-orders are open now and the game costs $59.99, though owners of Valve’s Index VR headset will get it for free. Unfortunately, it seems there’s no plans for a non-VR version of the game, so get ready to open your wallets if you haven’t jumped on board that train yet.
