Valve has now officially announced its next Half-Life game, titled Half-Life: Alyx.
As we heard earlier this week, Alyx will be set between Half-Life and Half-Life 2. You’ll play as the latter’s Alyx Vance as she and her father mount a secret resistance to the alien Combine.
Alyx is set to launch on Steam in March 2020 and be compatible with all PC-based VR headsets.
It’ll cost $ 60 on its own – or it’ll be free if you have shelled out for a Valve Index headset.
Valve describes Alyx as being in the vein of a “classic Half-Life game” with a focus on exploration, puzzles, combat and story.
“Everyone at Valve is excited to be returning to the world of Half-Life, “Valve founder Gabe Newell said. “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.
“For that to come in the form of Half-Life feels like the culmination of a lot things we care a lot about: truly great games, cutting edge technology, and open platforms. We can’t wait for people to experience this. “
