“Half-Life: Alyx” Reveal Trailer & Details

Half Life Alyx Reveal Trailer Details

Valve has released details and videos related to “Half-Life: Alyx,” the company’s upcoming VR title returning to the famed game franchise after a twelve-year absence.

Set for release on Steam in March 2020, the game will be playable on ‘all PC-based VR headsets’ and is set between the events of “Half-Life” and “Half-Life 2”. Alyx Vance and her father Eli secretly mount the resistance to the brutal occupation of Earth by a mysterious alien race known as The Combine. As Alyx, players take the fight to the Combine to save the future of humanity.

The project has been described as a “full-length” experience designed for VR from the ground up. It also boasts “all of the hallmarks of a classic Half-Life game: world exploration, puzzle-solving, visceral combat, and an intricately woven story that connects it all with the characters iconic to the Half-Life universe.”

In addition, The Verge asked designer David Speyrer if we could expect more games in the series and it sounds as though it is:

“It’s probably no surprise that many people at Valve have been wanting to get back to the Half-Life universe for a long time, and this experience has only reinforced that. In the process of creating Half-Life: Alyx, we’ve had to explore new ways to tell stories with these characters and this world, and we’ve discovered a lot of new gameplay experiences that go beyond what we’ve been able to do before. Of course, we’ll have to wait and see how people react to Half-Life: Alyx once it’s out, but we’d love to continue pushing forward.”

The game will reportedly be free for those who own Valve’s Index VR headset which was released in June.
