Valve today announced Half-Life: Alyx a “full-length VR entry in the award-winning series.” A new trailer gives the first glimpse of the game, and Valve has also revealed the Half-Life: Alyx release date, price, and headset compatibility. 

Half-Life: Alyx is one of three VR games that the famed developer has been quietly toiling away on for the last several years. A trailer revealed today gives the first look at what Valve plans to unleash as both the company’s first full-fledged VR game and the first Half-Life game in 12 years.

Half-Life: Alyx is set between the events of the original Half-Life (1998) and Half-Life 2 (2004). 

“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,” Valve said in today’s announcement.

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.”

Half-Life: Alyx Supported VR Headsets

Half-Life: Alyx is exclusive to VR, but Valve has affirmed that it will run on all SteamVR headsets. That covers every major PC VR headset on the market including Valve’s own Index, as well as Rift, Vive, Cosmos, WMR, and Pimax.

Half-Life: Alyx Release Date and Price

The company had announced earlier this year that the game would ship in 2019, but as of today it has delayed the title; the Half-Life: Alyx release date is March 2020. The game is priced at $60, available today with a 10% pre-purchase discount; Valve plans to give the game away for free to all owners of the company’s Index headset or controllers.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
