Valve announces Half-Life: Alyx, its first flagship VR game

Two years and nine months after announcing it would build three (3) full-length VR games — a number that Valve Software has historically never been able to count to before, and one of the most exciting announcements in VR’s short history so far — the company has today announced Half-Life: Alyx, the first new game in the acclaimed Half-Life series in well over a decade.

We don’t currently have any details beyond the tweet from Valve above, which appears to be the first tweet from a new, Twitter-verified Valve Software account established in June.

But Alyx almost certainly refers to Half-Life 2 protagonist Gordon Freeman’s closest ally Alyx Vance, who was last seen… who am I kidding, I played Half-Life 2: Episode 2 back in 2007 when it first came out, I gave up on ever seeing another game in the series years ago after, and if I’m just looking up the synopsis on Wikipedia I might as well share it with you too. I do remember it being a huge, emotional cliffhanger.

When pinged for comment, Valve sent me a completely unrelated press release: “CS:GO – OPERATION SHATTERED WEB AVAILABLE NOW.” Thanks, I guess?
