Thread: Half-Life: Alyx

    Half-Life: Alyx

    Yes. It is 2019. Yes. You are awake. And Yes. Valve have actually announced a new Half-Life game.

    They still have an aversion to the number 3 but the rumoured Alyx based VR prequel is official. Nothing formal has been shown of the game but Valve have confirmed the game will first be seen by the world this Thursday at 10am Pacific Time.

    For Steam VR only. Theyíve lost the plot.

    Steam VR isn't hardware. This new HL game isn't exclusive to their Index headsets, so any PCVR headset like Rift, Vive, Pimax etc. will run the game. Maybe it'll be ported to PSVR2 or other formats in the future.

    Well, to be fair to Valve, fans have wanted Half-Life to return for a very long time and they were clearly trying to think of a way of bringing it back in a way that would once again deliver a distinct way of experiencing this universe compared to the previous games and finally we have it - a new Half-Life game that most fans will be able to experience... as a Youtube walkthrough video. Inspired

    It's be fascinating to be sure but that niche appeal is no doubt why this doesn't have a number 3 tagged at the end of it. For most fans it's probably just another depressing tease that they aren't going to get that Ep3 / HL3 continuation at all given it's taken a belated arrival on niche tech to get a spin-off after so many years. I think I'm more curious about it to find out if Valve's loss of the franchise talent over the years has robbed them of what's needed to deliver the required standard.

    My guess is that its going to use the exact same engine and graphics as HL2 (maybe slightly tarted up) and will be a short 2 hour game playing as Alyx either just before the events of HL2 or showing what she was doing when she wasn't by your side. Concidering Valve have very few actual developers now I don't expect much.
