    The latest entry in the Half-Life series is just a little over a month away. Valve has announced that Half-Life: Alyx will be releasing on March 23, 2020, for compatible virtual reality headsets. For those looking to grab a Valve Index for the occasion, or those that have already made their pre-orders, Valve will also be offering certain bonuses, such as Steam VR Home environments that feature props and visuals of locations from the game, which will go live slightly ahead of the game's launch, on March 2nd. Half-Life: Alyx will be supported by the Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift/Quest, and Windows MR headsets.

    I just can't get hyped up about VR games anymore...

    Every one which I looked forward to wasn't all that fun (Budget Cuts, Boneworls, The Gallery Call of the Starseed). And I'm afraid that:
    • It will suck with the Vive wands (the Knuckles are way too expensive for the little to no support)
    • It will be just be good, but not recolutionary

    I like how this game took less than a year to get released and yet still no Half-Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, not Portal 3 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    As someone who doesn't own any VR headsets or even a VR capable machine, I'd definitely buy into that just to try out this game and many of the other ones worth playing. It's getting more and more tempting with every release.

    The way I look at it is that, considering all of the stuff that occurred with a potential HL3 or Episode 3 of Half-Life 2 this last decade, this is better than all of the hints people were searching for that were probably just stuff that Valve was repurposing from their work on Half-Life 2 as opposed to a confirmation that anything was coming at all.

    anyone have both vive and index ? Is supersampling on Vive gonna look good like normal resolution on index ? Some people suggest me to save money and get controllers standalone to pair with Vive and steam vr 1.0.

    The irony of launching the 3rd game of the 2nd installment of Half-life games story on the 23rd is priceless.

    This definitely did NOT take less than a year, they only announced it once development was close to finished.

    I will wait for reviews, but am expecting this game to be the game changer that does what VR has needed to be done for a while. If the game is off rails, and the story draws you in as with previous Half-Life games, then I'll most likely upgrade my GFX card and invest in a VR kit before summer of this year.
