Valve's Index VR Headset Back In Stock, But You Better Hurry

Valve has restocked its popular VR headset, the Valve Index, ahead of the upcoming Half-Life: Alyx.


We're mere weeks away from the release of Half-Life: Alyx, and if you haven't picked up a Valve Index VR headset yet, then you have at least one more chance to do so before the game comes out: Valve has restocked its sold-out Index VR kits, headsets, and controllers. The restock became available at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, and Valve expects the available stock to sell out again today. Any orders fulfilled beyond the initial quantity will be fulfilled in the order they were received--Valve says supplies will increase over the coming months. That means if you're interested, you're going to want to snag the Valve Index as soon as possible.

The Valve Index VR kit costs $999 and comes with the Index headset, controllers, and base stations in addition to a copy of Half-Life: Alyx. This is everything you need to play the new Half-Life game. The restock includes not only the Index VR kits but also the headset-controller bundle; the headset and controllers can also be purchased separately. The base station on its own is already out of stock.

If you're not interested in the Valve Index or want to spend a little less money on a VR headset, the good news is that Half-Life: Alyx is compatible with a wide variety of headsets.

Half-Life: Alyx is currently $54 (down from $60) on Steam. It's the first game in the Half-Life series in 13 years and is set between the first and second games. You play as titular character Alyx Vance, one of the founders of a resistance that fights to liberate the people of Earth from the evil Combine. It's built from the ground up for VR, and yes, you can totally get a Headcrab on your face--thankfully, you can also rip it off and throw it away.
