Valve Software’s Half-Life: Alyx is only a few months away, and since it requires a VR headset, players may consider a hardware purchase.
Half-Life: Alyx will launch next year, find out when here.
Look away now console fans – there’s nothing confirmed for you. Alyx seems, for the immediate future anyway, to be a PC exclusive.
Those of you looking for a review – we’ve got something for you.
We haven’t got the opportunity to play and review Alyx ahead of release, but what we do have is a review of the prequel.
Half-Life 2 was virtually the perfect sequel to the original game.
It took almost everything that worked well in Half-Life and either improved on it, or kept it pretty much the same.
But such a simple summary almost undersells how Valve approached the sequel.
FOR THE RESISTANCE: Half Life: Alyx will see you help the resistance battle the Combine on the streets of city 17
Half-Life 2 is a linear shooter with most of the refinements one would expect from years of work.
The impressive production values ensured that Half-Life 2 was a magnificent, dramatic experience that few games could compete with at launch.
Half-Life 2 received some pretty amazing reviews:
9.5/10 from IGN
10/10 from Steam
9.4/10 from Gamespot
If Half-Life 2’s review is anything to go by, the upcoming game is going to be absolutely incredible.
