Valve Software officially announces Half-Life: Alyx VR game after it got leaked

After months of speculations, Valve Software has finally announced and confirmed the arrival of a new Half-Life game-the first one in over a decade-entitled Half-Life: Alyx, and will also be Valve's first flagship VR game.

And Half-Life fans have been waiting for Half-Life 2: Episode Three or Half-Life 3, but it's been a long time since the last Half-Life game was released.

More details will be revealed on November 21 at 10:00 a.m. PT. We'll have to wait until 10am PDT on Thursday (11:30pm IST) to find out what Valve has in the store for fans with its upcoming VR game. The Valve Index is widely considered to be one of the best VR kits on the market now and Half-Life: Alyx could be that killer app that forces a lot of gamers to take the plunge and invest in VR.

The original game introduced an alien technological superpower called the Combine that, once it was unleashed on Earth by Gordon Freeman, conquered the planet in a few hours. Ars Technica reports that Valve has been developing a new control system for the new game.

Valve itself partnered with HTC to produce the HTC Vive headset, and released its own branded, high-fidelity Valve Index setup earlier this year. Simply judging by the name, the Internet seems to in agreement that this game will focus on Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2. But it has resisted starting work on Half-Life 3. Despite the actual fact that some would possibly maybe perhaps peep that as a true ingredient, because it method when you happen to don't contain procure entry to to VR then you're handiest missing out on a aspect sage.

Talk of a new Half-Life title kicked off when an alleged interview transcript between Valve executives was leaked online.

Given the first two instalments of the Half-Life franchise pushed the boundaries at the time, it does make some kind of sense that the next part of the series could be VR-based, and such rumours definitely aren't new.
