Half-Life Alyx: Release Date, Discounted Pre-Order, And VR Headsets

We’re only a month away from a new Half-Life game. Half-Life: Alyx releases March 23. Set before the events of Half-Life 2, you’ll play Alyx in a VR-exclusive adventure. Thankfully, pretty much every PC VR headset is capable of playing Half-Life: Alyx, as Valve has not made it exclusive to the company’s Index headset and controllers–whether you have an Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift S, or Vive, you’re good to go. Best of all, if you pre-order Half-Life: Alyx, you’ll get a 10% discount, bringing the $60 price down to $54. However, if you do own or purchase the Valve Index VR headset–or one of its accessories–then you’ll get Half-Life: Alyx free of any extra charge.

The great thing about Half-Life: Alyx is that very few VR headsets are incompatible. In fact, any headset that works with Steam VR also works with Half-Life: Alyx.

In preparation for Half-Life: Alyx’s launch, Valve recently made every game in the Half-Life series free until Alyx’s launch. If you want to familiarize yourself with the series, now’s an excellent time. According to Valve, Alyx takes place between the events of Half-Life 1 and Half-Life 2. Alyx is the first game in the series for more than a decade. The last entry was 2007’s Half-Life 2: Episode Two, which infamously left its story unresolved.

We’ve compiled a list of everything we know about Half-Life: Alyx so far. This includes the game’s length–which is “about the same” as Half-Life 2–Valve’s history with VR, a rundown of when the rumors started, and more.
