Half-Life: Alyx now available

Half-Life: Alyx launches to critical acclaim

Now a new Half-Life game is here in the form of Half-Life: Alyx, and as our review mentions, Alyx certainly has fun "tapping into a horror element that Half-Life had only previously toyed with".

Every other Half-Life game is now free!

Contrary to what most of the fans were expecting, the Half-Life series will be revived. Half-Life 2 is one of the most celebrated games of all time, but the stress of creating Source 2 created issues as the studio tried to move on to new projects, and Valve Level Designer Dario Casali recently revealed that was a big part of why a new Half-Life game didn't happen for a long time after Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was done.

Checking in on the metacritic page reveals an overall score of 93 for Half-Life: Alyx, which is based on 21 critic reviews so far.

BTS's Korean Language Series Launches During Lockdown For Free!
The objective of " Learn Korean With BTS " is to present a fun way of teaching non-Korean speaking fans the Korean language. Three-minute Videos will be released to highlight simple Korean grammar and expressions.

"It started scarier, for sure", Casali told GameSpot. How are people able to enjoy it?

While Alyx does have certain shortcomings, such as total weapon selection and occasionally wonky interaction, the general consensus seems clear: if you love VR gaming, and especially the Half-Life series, you're going to want to jump on this title as soon as you can. VR specialist website Road to VR awarded the game a flawless score, noting that "Alyx feels like a Half-Life game through and through as it successfully shifts between combat, exploration, puzzles, and even some notable horror". "The shock of having that guy come around the corner and latch onto you before you'd even know what was going on was just too much".

As it turns out, designing towards a more accessible experience for less experienced players can also help to tone down some of the more unpleasant "horror" elements that they wanted to avoid. We'll be avoiding all story spoilers that aren't relevant to the tease itself, but know that we ARE discussing a scene from the very end of Alyx if you plan to keep reading.

Players will have to pre-load their purchases ahead of time because the file size of Alyx is not to be underestimated. After the release on March 3, the unlock time on Steam for Half Life Alyx will be 5pm GMT.
