Half-Life: Alyx Releasing In March 2020 With Linux Support

The developer described Half-Life: Alyx as its flagship VR title and promised to unveil it to the world on Thursday.

In an interview with The Verge, Valve programmer David Speyrer confirmed that Half-Life: Alyx is not a side-story, nor is it episodic. That news finally arrived on Monday, in the form of a tweet from Valve announcing a brand new game.

Half-Life is going to be released on the Steam Store, but you won't be getting this game for your PC.

"It's not a side story, nor an episodic one - it's the next part of the Half-Life story, in a game around the same length as Half-Life 2".

"It's probably no surprise that many people at Valve have been wanting to get back to the Half-Life universe for a long time, and this experience has only reinforced that", he said. It's the first Half-Life game since 2007 (not counting fan-made drama bombs like Hunt Down the Freeman), and is a prequel set between the ending of Half-Life and the beginning of Half-Life 2, while Gordon Freeman is out of commission.

Players will take on the role of Alyx, wearing a pair of "gravity gloves" that allow you to grab things otherwise out of reach. That turned out not to be true, and Half-Life: Alyx was revealed today instead. It will be compatible with all major virtual reality headsets, including Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality devices.

According to Valve, Half-Life: Alyx is set in-between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2, and will follow the travails of Alyx and her father, Eli.

What Can I Play Half-Life: Alyx On? The Combine's control of the planet since the Black Mesa incident has only strengthened as they corral the remaining population in cities. You have three options in this game, and they are all great. Furthermore, you can find below its debut gameplay trailer.

Every day, you learn more about your enemy, and every day you work toward finding a weakness.

"Everyone at Valve is excited to be returning to the world of Half-Life", says Valve founder Gabe Newell. VR was built to enable the gameplay that sits at the heart of Half-Life.
