2 Comments

Half-Life: Alyx will be the first game in the series in more than 10 years, and as a result anticipation is high for the VR-only game. Valve has released a trio of gameplay videos to prepare players for what they'll find when it releases on March 23.

The trio of trailers show a variety of environments, lots of dialogue, and some enemy encounters. One aspect that's particularly notable is the fine motor control for Alyx's hands, which is a feature used to show the manipulation of pretty fine motor controls. That's one advantage of the VR controls that isn't quite analogous to a standard controller or keyboard and mouse setup.

Valve only recently announced the release date, and the game is still offered at a 10% discount pre-order price through the Steam page. We knew it would be coming in March, and the company had said it didn't expect delays since the game was essentially already finished. As the name suggests, this is a full-Half-Life game starring the popular character Alyx Vance, set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

Though Valve sells its own VR equipment, it has announced Alyx will work with multiple VR headsets. You can read up on the best VR headsets to get in advance of the release, and make sure your PC system specs are up to snuff. For more details, read our pre-order guide.
