Set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2, Half-Life: Alyx is a new full-length game built from the ground up by Valve for virtual reality.
Valve – the studio behind the Half-Life franchise, Portal and Left 4 Dead – officially revealed the Steam VR game via a new trailer.
The long-awaited game is officially available for pre-order on Steam now.
Valve programmer David Speyrer told The Verge:
It’s not a side story, nor an episodic one – it’s the next part of the Half-Life story, in a game around the same length as Half-Life 2. While it does take place before the events of Half-Life 2, we actually recommend that you play through Half-Life 2: Episode 2 before you play Half-Life: Alyx, for reasons that will become clear as you progress.
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.
Gameplay wise, it’s a VR exclusive and you’ll get to enjoy the manipulation of gravity with Alyx’s special Gravity Gloves – you can see her pick up a pistol from a distance in the trailer.
Here’s Valve’s description of what type of gameplay fans should expect in Half-Life: Alyx:
Lean to aim around a broken wall and under a Barnacle to make an impossible shot. Rummage through shelves to find a healing syringe and some shotgun shells. Manipulate tools to hack alien interfaces. Toss a bottle through a window to distract an enemy. Rip a Headcrab off your face and throw it at a Combine soldier.
It’ll be available to play on all PC-based VR headsets, not just Valve’s own Index – however, if you do own one of those, you’ll get for free.
