We know the release date of the next game in the Half-Life series


Valve broke the silence.

When in November 2019 Valve unexpectedly announced Half-Life: Alyx, we immediately learned that the game will debut in March. Nevertheless, the exact release date has been kept secret for a long time until now. Valve has finally set a day when players will be able to launch the next installment of the famous Half-Life series for the first time.

The legendary series is back

As you know, Half-Life: Alyx is a production created for VR goggles. Nobody expected such Half-Life, but in fact why not try it? Yes, yes, this is not the dream Episode 3. Half-Life 2, but you have to admit that the game promises to be really good.

Half-Life: Alyx is a first person shooter whose action takes place between the first and second part of the series. It is worth recalling that the main heroine of the game is of course the title Alyx Vance, which players met in Half-Life 2. Alyx is conducting with his father research on the weaknesses of the Combine – a group of aliens that has controlled the Earth since the Black Mes incident. The girl hopes that in this way she will manage to give humanity a chance to defeat the occupiers.

Half-Life only for owners of VR goggles

Half-Life: Alyx will be compatible with goggles such as Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality. Unfortunately, according to the information displayed on the game page on Steam, virtual reality goggles are even required to play the game. Therefore, people who do not have such equipment will not be able to try this part of the Half-Life series.


While those who do not have virtual reality goggles probably deplore the above fact, the opposite is true for those who have them. Most of the titles released so far for VR goggles are usually very short, simple and mechanic games that can be counted on one hand. These devices definitely need titles such as Half-Life: Alyx, which really encourage you to reach for them despite their still excessive prices.

Half-Life: Alyx – release date

So when will Half-Life: Alyx debut? Valve has set a release date of March 23 this year. Since this day will be in less than a month and a half, I don't think there is a risk of delaying the premiere. When setting such a debut day for production, Valve had to be sure that it would be ready on time.

Half-Life: Alyx can be purchased on Steam as part of the presale. The game was valued at usd 214.99, but at the moment it is offered at a promotional price of usd 193.49. We remind you that until the premiere of the title in all other installments of the cycle can be played for free.

Remember that the Steam application can be downloaded from our software database.
