Our March IGN First game (think of it as IGN’s monthly magazine-style “cover story”) is Half-Life: Alyx, the long, looooooong-awaited new entry in the legendary Half-Life series. The first-person shooter is going VR this time around, and you’re about to see why that’s cool.
The first video below is our first exclusive piece of Alyx content for the month: a nine-minute gameplay video from early in the campaign, when you first encounter zombies and headcrabs. Take a look:
And here are the three trailers Valve also released today. The first covers some of the same ground our exclusive video does (though it is a different playthrough). The second video, meanwhile, shows off Alyx using grenades as well as what happens when Xen begins to infiltrate City 17. And the third video is a tense, hectic firefight with Combine soldiers that gives you a look at the shotgun.
Half-Life: Alyx will be released for PC-based VR platforms on March 23.
