Pre-Order Half-Life: Alyx

Half-Life: Alyx is Valve's newest Half-Life game--the first in 12-plus years. It will be available on any SteamVR-compatible headset. Alyx is expected to launch sometime in March 2020.

Valve officially revealed Alyx on November 21, a few days after rumors about its potential announcement at The Game Awards began to circulate. Alongside the reveal, the company released a gameplay trailer for the upcoming VR title, which can be viewed above. According to Valve, Alyx takes place between the events of Half-Life 1 and Half-Life 2 and is the first Half-Life game in more than a decade. The last entry was 2007's Half-Life 2: Episode Two, which infamously left the Half-Life story unresolved.

We've compiled a list of everything we know about Half-Life: Alyx so far. This includes the game's length--which is "about the same" as Half-Life 2--Valve's history with VR, a rundown of when the rumors started, and more.
