Valve Software officially announced Half-Life: Alyx, a new Half-Life VR game and the first Half-Life title in 12 years. Valve says it will fully reveal details for the game later this week, but new details have already emerged about its possible gameplay mechanics and setting.
Ars Technica published a report with new details about Half-Life: Alyx. According to their sources, Half-Life: Alyx will be a prequel that takes place between Half-Life 1 and Half-Life 2. As the title implies, Half-Life: Alyx will put players literally in the shoes of Alyx Vance, Gordon Freeman’s partner introduced in Half-Life 2.
