Right afterannouncingHalf-Life: Alyx, already one of the most anticipated VR games of all time , Valve has confirmed plans to bring itsIndex headset and controllersto other countries, starting with Canada and Japan today. The $ 999 Index is already available in the US and Europe.
Half-Life: Alyxwon’t require a Valve Index, but the company’s own VR headset is likely to provide the most high -end experience available. It’s also unclear to what degree the game might be optimized for Valve’s Index controllers, which offer better individual finger sensing than most competitors.
Half-Life: Alyxwill be a free download for all Index owners, while people who buy the headset before the end of the year will get access to in-game cosmetic items and locations that can be explored through Steam VR Destinations.
