This month’s IGN First for Half-Life: Alyx is officially in full swing, with brand new gameplay and some commentary on it from Valve! As part of our coverage, Ryan McCaffrey and I played through roughly the first four hours of Alyx, and now we want to know what you want to know.
While we can’t reveal everything we saw just yet (and Ryan has a full preview coming next week that will offer his in-depth impressions), we want to open the floor to any burning questions you have about what it’s like to play Valve’s long-awaited return to the Half-Life universe.
Leave any questions you might have about our time playing Alyx in the comments below! We’ll grab a bunch and update this post with our answers next week.
Keep in mind, Valve has asked us not to share certain details about the story, some of the later mechanics we saw, and other spoilery things like that just yet. But maybe you’re curious about the movement, how its weapons feel, or what the pacing and atmosphere is like from within VR? We had a lot of fun playing Alyx, and we’re excited to tell you about it!
You can find all our Half-Life: Alyx IGN First coverage here, and be sure to keep an eye out all month long for even more exclusive reveals.
