Half-Life: Alxy, a VR-only Half-Life 2 prequel that takes place between the two main games in the franchise, is now officially set for a March 23 Steam release date. Though Valve has trouble counting, at least they know fans want more Half-Life.
You can check out the original announcement trailer below.
Playing Half-Life: Alxy will require a compatible VR headset, such as the Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest. The game also supports Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
Sadly, there is no indication of a PSVR port at this time. It looks like PS4 owners will have to jump on the SteamVR bandwagon if they want to play — for now at least.
Alxy is up for pre-order now on Steam for 10% off the full $59.99 price. Until the game drops in March, every previous Half-Life game is free to play on Steam.
While a brand-new game is huge news for the Half-Life franchise, fans also have the Black Mesa remake of the original Half-Life game to look forward to soon. After more than a decade in development, Black Mesa finally has a 1.0 Beta version available for testing, with a full launch expected later this year.
