After a leak earlier this week, Valve has officially unveiled its upcoming VR game, Half-Life: Alyx.
Valve released the first trailer showcasing Half-Life fan favourite, Alyx, in her standalone story. Half-Life: Alyx will be set between the events of the first two games and mixes humour, stealth, and horror.
Half-Life: Alyx will be a full VR experience and only available on SteamVR.
Valve co-founder and president Gabe Newell explained the company’s choice to switch to a VR approach in a statement. “VR has energized us. We’ve invested a lot of ourselves in the technology. But we’re also game developers at heart, and to be devoting ourselves to a VR game this ambitious is just as exciting.”
The leaked release date of March 2020 was also confirmed during the event.
