Half-Life: Alyx in March

Valve has followed through on their promise, revealing first details of Half-Life: Alyx, a new installment in the Half-Life series that will require a virtual reality headset. The game will be free to owners of Valve's Index and will also support Rift, Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality. This Source 2 engine project is planned for release in March 2020 (Valve Time), and it is already available for pre-purchase on Steam. There is more information on the Half-Life Website, including an Announcement Trailer. While gamers have been waiting for more than a decade to learn what happens after Half-Life 2: Episode Two, word is this new game will help us understand what happened between Half-Life and Half-Life 2:
Valve, the creators of Half-Life and the Steam platform, today announced Half-Life: Alyx, a new, full-length virtual reality entry in the Half-Life series. Slated for release on Steam in March 2020, the title will be compatible with all PC-based VR headsets in March 2020.

Set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2, Alyx Vance and her father Eli secretly mount the resistance to the brutal occupation of Earth by a mysterious alien race known as The Combine. As Alyx, players take the fight to the Combine to save the future of humanity.

Half-Life: Alyx was designed from the ground up for Virtual Reality and features all of the hallmarks of a classic Half-Life game: world exploration, puzzle solving, visceral combat, and an intricately woven story that connects it all with the characters iconic to the Half-Life universe.

"Everyone at Valve is excited to be returning to the world of Half-Life", says Valve founder Gabe Newell. "VR has energized us. We've invested a lot of ourselves in the technology. But we're also game developers at heart, and to be devoting ourselves to a VR game this ambitious is just as exciting. For that to come in the form of Half-Life feels like the culmination of a lot things we care a lot about: truly great games, cutting edge technology, and open platforms. We can't wait for people to experience this."

Half-Life: Alyx is powered by SteamVR on Valve's Source 2 engine, and can be played on Steam with all PC-based VR headsets.

Wouldn't be the first time i'd spent $2k to play a $60 dollar game.

Hrm, looks pretty good actually. I don't know if it looks good enough for me to drop 500-1000$ dollars on a VR headset/controllers, but not bad, Valve.

Looks really good, pity it is VR only. Not sure Half-Life can make VR work like it did for Steam. Can someone make a Half-Life 2 HD remaster?
Been reading since 1998

I guess you are to stupid to read that it says it will work on all headsets.
Guess your parents were too stupid to be teach you how to be nice to people.

The vive is actually the HTC headset. Valve would like everyone to buy their Index, which this game is probably most optimized for. But yes, this game will work on all headsets.

I'm suuuuuper excited for this game. First LEGIT VR Game ever.

Oh, thought Valve was still pushing the Vives, didn't realize they had their own headset.

This and Boneworks definitely make me want to get into VR. And it comes with modding tools for Source 2, which should lead to some interesting content.

Seeing the finger movements definitely makes an Index purchase that much more appealing.... That scavenging for ammo, though!

I for one am happy to see Valve releasing another HL title. I don't have VR gear but depending on reviews it may prompt me to pick up a headset.
