By Clinton Matos

Many games, such as Beat Saber or Superhot VR, are playable on the Quest store, but since Alyx is a flagship VR title, it'll only be available if you have a PC to hook it up to. Valve knew he had a Half-Life game that he could finish. As you'd expect, VR only accentuates those horror elements more.

"Half-Life: Alyx is coming in March, and we are celebrating early by making all games in the Half-Life Series FREE to play for Steam users, from now until the day it launches!"

"It started scarier, for sure", Casali told GameSpot. That's a 13-year wait between series entries, and Polygon had a simple question for legendary Valve game designer Robin Walker, who has worked on games like Team Fortress Classic, Half-Life 2Y Dota 2: Will we have to wait another 13 years for more? "I "d like to think that we're as excellent as we have actually ever been at structure Half-Life at this moment, and I hope we continue to make somemore I do not think there's going to be another 13 years [until the next one], and if it is, I most likely won" t be dealing with it".

As mentioned above, we are about to dive into spoiler land here, so turn back now if you don't want to know anymore!

"Trying to avoid jump scares", Davis pointed out, "Because jump scares are bad in VR".


"We ended the game in the way you always end the game as a game developer, which is that the end is when you feel like now you really know how to make this game".

Players will have to pre-load their purchases ahead of time because the file size of Alyx is not to be underestimated.

"We were never really that happy with what we came up with", Casali admitted.

Casali also cited the four difficulty levels as a good way for players to adjust what they're comfortable with.

KitGuru Says: It is great to see Half-Life: Alyx launching with such a positive reception, although I do understand some fans being upset about not being able to experience it. If ever you are planning to familiarize yourself with the series before actually playing Alyx, now is a ideal time!
