Best of all, if you pre-order Half-Life: Alyx, you'll get a 10% discount, bringing the $60 price down to $54.

On a side note, if you haven't played any of the Half-Life games, you can pick them up for free until Alyx launches in March. Upon the announcement that the game - the first in its series since October 2007's Half-Life 2: Episode 2 - would be given gratis to said audience, the Index sold out right across Europe and North America. The VR game was revealed last year, and no one in 23 years expected a Half-Life game to come back from dead.

Enticingly, since the first reveal Valve has implied that a successful launch could see them return to Half Life again. Half-Life: Alyx, which can only be played with virtual reality equipment, will be available in March as Valve explained earlier. As it requires a VR headset, which costs around $400, not to mention a high-powered PC. This includes the game's length-which is "about the same" as Half-Life 2-Valve's history with VR, a rundown of when the rumors started, and more.

"Tear a headcrab off your face and throw it out the window".
