Half-Life: Alyx VR - Everything Valve Announced Today

Out of nowhere, Valve earlier this week confirmed that a new Half-Life game--the first in more than decade--was on the way. It made us wait until today, November 21, to get any details beyond the name, Half-Life: Alyx, and it's had a lot to share. But that information has come spread across numerous sources: different Valve websites, including Steam's store page, and interviews, such as one for Geoff Keighley's The Final Hours series.

With that in mind, we've rounded up all of our coverage from today's big announcement of the new virtual reality game. You can also stay tuned to our roundup of everything we know about Half-Life: Alyx, which we'll continue to update in the months leading up to the game's release next year.

Half-Life: Alyx Details

  • Release date: March 2020
  • Platform: PC VR
  • Price: $60

Valve Reveals Half-Life: Alyx: A "Full-Length" Game Set Before Half-Life 2

Valve's Half-Life: Alyx will be available on all PC VR headsets, including Oculus, but it's free with the Valve Index.

Pre-Order Half-Life: Alyx And Receive A Discount

Valve's latest Half-Life entry, Half-Life: Alyx, is now up for pre-order through Steam. Doing so rewards you with a nice little pre-purchase discount.

Half-Life: Alyx Supports Oculus And Any SteamVR-Compatible Headset

All of the major VR headsets will be able to run Half-Life: Alyx, though there will be some extra perks for Valve Index owners.

How To Get Half-Life: Alyx For Free

As Half-Life: Alyx goes on sale as part of a special pre-purchase promotion through March 30, 2020, there's a way to get the game for free before it launches.

Half-Life: Alyx Has Valve Index-Exclusive Content If You Buy The VR Headset This Year

The first new Half-Life game in more than a decade is coming next March, and you can get some exclusive bonus content for it if you pick up an Index in 2019.

Half-Life: Alyx First Story Details Revealed

Valve's upcoming VR game is set between the events of Half-Life 1 and 2, and it follows Alyx Vance and her father; here's the official story synopsis.

Why Half-Life: Alyx Is Not The "Terrifyingly Daunting Prospect" Of Half-Life 3

With development on Half-Life: Alyx beginning over a decade after the release of Half-Life 2, Valve did not want to tackle to expectations fans have for Half-Life 3.

Why Half-Life: Alyx Is Only For VR And Why It Won't Have Mouse And Keyboard Controls

In a recent interview, Valve commented exactly why Half-Life: Alyx can only be played on VR headsets.

Half-Life: Alyx PC System Requirements Are Higher Than VR Minimum Specs

With Half-Life: Alyx being a game built for VR, the required PC specs may not come as a surprise.

Before Half-Life: Alyx, Valve Considered A Portal VR Game

Valve explored several options for its upcoming VR title, including making it a Portal game or including a multiplayer component.

Half-Life: Alyx Specific Release Date May Be Hinted On Steam

The new Half-Life VR game has set a month-long release window, but we may be able to glean a more specific date from its pre-purchase offer.

Half-Life: Alyx Trailer Is Our First Look At Half-Life In Years

Half-Life: Alyx may not be what fans were expecting, but a look at the first trailer shows it's unmistakably a Half-Life game.

How Long Is Half-Life: Alyx?

While there are plenty of questions about Half-Life: Alyx, we've learned that its length is comparable to 2004's Half-Life 2.

Half-Life: Alyx Devs Include Firewatch's Campo Santo Veterans

Following the apparent silence with In The Valley Of The Gods, it's been revealed that the Firewatch devs are working on the upcoming Half-Life VR game.
