Valve announces new Half-Life game but there's a catch

Titled Half of-Existence: Alyx, this "flagship VR" sport from Valve would possibly well possibly be the first contemporary named entry (no longer counting the Portal series) in extra than 12 years, and even longer whereas you don't depend the Half of-Existence 2 expansions. No other information was revealed besides this tweet but expect to hear more from the company as we come closer to the "reveal event".

This announcement comes a few years after Valve's previous declaration to develop VR games with HTC, though nothing concrete from that collab has since gotten out officially. But Valve is getting ready to fully unveil a new Half-Life game this Thursday.

The leading theory right now is that this new game will be a prequel to Half-Life 2.


Named after a character in the original series, Half-Life: Alyx is supposedly a successor to Half-Life 2. "But I think people probably wonder, okay, moving forward does this mean that Valve now is just making VR games?"

In spite of being the absolute generally powerful and widely praised PC games at any point made, Valve has broadly never completed both of its Half-Life guessed sets of three of games.

According to the transcript, the new game could arrive in March 2020. Let us know in the Shacknews Chatty comment section below!


What I learn about HLA, at this place, has me assured that Valve's VR online game design groups share the an identical frustrations with been-there-VR'ed-that quests and that HLA wouldn't repeat their issues. We suggest following the official Valve account and turning on notifications for it. (This will not be the first time an formal HL game wrested control from Freeman the 2001 growth pack Fifty percent-Lifestyle: Blue Change starred the initially game's beloved stability guard Barney.) We've gotten an sign that the game's testing period has not demonstrated any components of Alyx's overall body in location of your individual, further than a pair of hands.

When pinged for input on Half-Life: Alyx, Valve sent me a totally random public statement, most likely completely unintentionally: "CS:GO - OPERATION SHATTERED WEB AVAILABLE NOW".
