Half-Life: Alyx Release Date May Be Hiding On Steam
This is when you may be able to play Half-Life: Alyx.
Half-Life: Alyx has been announced, marking the first new game in the series in more than a decade. Valve has already said it's due in March 2020, but the Steam listing may offer an even more specific release date--you know, just in case you want to plan your vacation days in advance, or anything.
The Steam page is offering a 10% discount on the game as a pre-purchase promotion. But notably, it says that offer ends on March 30, 2020. That could suggest a release date of March 30 or March 31, which is a Tuesday--one of the usual days for retail releases. It's also possible that this is just a placeholder date, or even that the discounted price will apply to early purchasers as well as pre-purchasers. GameSpot has contacted Valve for clarification.
Half-Life: Alyx is said to be a full-length game experience that takes place before Half-Life 2. It will be free for Valve Index owners, so you can still get in on the offer by grabbing an Index. It will be playable on any SteamVR compatible headset. We also know now that Campo Santo veterans are helping with the project.
