Valve has officially announced Half-Life: Alyx, a new full-length video game in the Half-Life series, built by Valve for VR. Half-Life: Alyx will be available in March 2020. In the VR game, set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2, Alyx Vance and her father Eli mount an early resistance to the Combine’s brutal occupation of Earth.
The loss of the Seven-Hour War is still fresh. In the shadow of a rising Combine fortress known as the Citadel, residents of City 17 learn to live under the rule of their invaders. But among this scattered population are two of Earth’s most resourceful scientists: Dr. Eli Vance and his daughter Alyx, the founders of a fledgling resistance.
You and your father were relocated to City 17. In the years since, you’ve continued your clandestine scientific activity – performing critical research, and building invaluable tools for the few humans brave enough to defy the Combine. Every day you learn more about your enemy, and every day you work toward finding a weakness.
You can lean around a broken wall and under a barnacle to make an impossible shot. Rummage through shelves to find a healing syringe and some shotgun shells. Manipulate tools to hack alien interfaces. And tear a headcrab off your face and throw it out the window.
Half-Life: Alyx supports a variety of play environments, locomotion methods, and input devices. The game was built hand in hand with Valve Index, but the game works great with Vive, Rift and Windows Mixed Reality too.
