Valve has announced that Half-Life: Alyx, the new VR Half-Life title set between the first and second games, will be available on March 23, 2020. Valve revealed the news on Twitter and also confirmed that pre-order bonuses for anyone who purchased a Valve Index will start to roll out on March 2nd, including "Steam VR Home environments inspired by locations in Half-Life: Alyx." Half-Life: Alyx was unveiled in November 2019 and will be a full-length Half-Life game that is played entirely in VR. This title marks Valve's first return to the Half-Life series since 2007's Half-Life 2: Episode 2. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/11/21/half-life-alyx-reveal-trailer"] Available on all PC-based VR headsets, Half-Life: Alyx puts players in the shoes of Alyx Vance instead of Gordon Freeman, and sees Alyx working with her father Eli to organize a resistance against The Combine. “Everyone at Valve is excited to be returning to the world of Half-Life,” Valve founder Gabe Newell said. “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.” Half-Life: Alyx is built on the Source 2 engine, will support mods, and will cost $59.99 USD.
