Half-Life: Alyx was unveiled in November 2019 and will be a full-length Half-Life game that is played entirely in VR. This title marks Valve’s first return to the Half-Life series since 2007’s Half-Life 2: Episode 2.Available on all PC-based VR headsets, Half-Life: Alyx puts players in the shoes of Alyx Vance instead of Gordon Freeman, and sees Alyx working with her father Eli to organize a resistance against The Combine.
“Everyone at Valve is excited to be returning to the world of Half-Life,” Valve founder Gabe Newell said. “VR has energized us. We’ve invested a lot of ourselves in the technology. But we’re also game developers at heart, and to be devoting ourselves to a VR game this ambitious is just as exciting.”
Half-Life: Alyx is built on the Source 2 engine, will support mods, and will cost $59.99 USD.
