Today, the Valve Corporation announced that they are set to unveil their first flagship VR game, Half-Life: Alyx, on Thursday, November 21. The game will also be shown at the Game Awards show in December, which would also most likely give us a first look at gameplay. No other details have yet been revealed, but the game is likely centered around Alyx Vance, a non-player character in Valve’s 2004 first-person shooter video game Half-Life 2, and its following episodes Half-Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two. Read more for a video and additional information.
In the games, Alyx is portrayed as a young woman in her mid-twenties of Afro-Asian descent, and is a notable figure in the human resistance against the rule of the alien race called the Combine and their human representative, Dr. Wallace Breen. She is a close friend and ally of the player’s main character, Gordon Freeman.
We’re excited to unveil Half-Life: Alyx, our flagship VR game, this Thursday at 10am Pacific Time.
