[GAMING] ‘HALF LIFE: ALYX’ ANNOUNCED

Half Life: Alyx is the next big thing from Valve. Fans have been longing for Half Life 3 for more than a decade and rumors stating that Valve was about to release a triple A title (which would be a new Half Life) earlier this year – in May – along with the launch of their Index VR Kit – were then put to test.

A couple of days ago a new Half Life game was indeed announced. It’s not HL3.

Half Life: Alyx is a VR title compatible with all PC- based VR- sets and takes place between Half-Life and Half-Life 2 during the invasion of The Combine.

Players will controll Alyx Vance, seen in Half-Life 2 where she was the closest ally to Gordon Freeman.

You’ll need at least a GeForce GTX 1060 and of course a VR-set to be able to play. It’s free for Valve’s Index VR owners and it’s intended to launch on Steam March 20, 2020.

VALVE Is Developing Three VR Games

Valve CEO Gabe Newell has told Eurogamer that the company is currently working on three VR games.

While he did not specified which these are, he told that they are not ports of existing games. The platform will be VIVE and the three will be full games to be released through Steam.

So far only Resident Evil 7 is a full game that can be played on VR and it averages at 8 to 10 hours. One game that could really hype folks up is Half Life 3, but then again: will it happen?
