Valve’s return to the award-winning series in virtual reality takes place between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. Alyx Vance and her father Eli mount an early resistance to the Combine’s brutal occupation of Earth.

Fans have been waiting since Half-Life 2: Episode 2, which was released in 2007.

“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.”

As Alyx, players battle to save the future of humanity: engaging in visceral combat, solving puzzles, and exploring a world decimated by a mysterious alien race. VR was built for the kind of gameplay that sits at the heart of Half-Life.
The game runs on the Source 2 engine, meaning gamers with Steam and all PC-based VR headsets.

Half-Life: Alyx is now available for Pre-Purchase on Steam and is 10% off, until the game is released in March 2020.
