Half-Life: Alyx is a new official Half-Life game

Fans around the world have been chomping at the bit for a new Half-Life game which seems to never come forth, and Valve has never shown interest in furthering the franchise.

But not everyone is as excited about the announcement of Half-Life: Alyx, such as Forbes' Erik Kain, most notably because for the first time in a decade, the newest title from the franchise is a VR-only experience.

While Valve hasn't been terribly active in the games space for a while, the company is a major innovator in the VR space.

Aside from the Twitter announcement, nothing more has yet been officially shared about the new Half-Life title. "March 2020, Half-Life: Alyx comin' out", says Keighley in the transcript, all but confirming Valve's next big project, date and all. Over the years, key writers of the previous Half-Life titles have also left, prompting many to wonder whether the series was dead.

Valve has announced that it will be unveiling Half-Life: Alyx, the company's flagship VR game this Thursday, and expectations are, unsurprisingly, ludicrously high.

For those of you holding out for a normal version playable with a keyboard and mouse, you're out of luck. It is a VR game.

The government also confirmed that as of 5pm on Wednesday, March 25, 578 people have died after testing positive from the virus. He aunt posted: "My handsome , kind hearted 21 year old niece Chloe has passed away from Covid-19".

Now that it is official, we're looking forward to seeing the Virtual Reality masterpiece created by Valve. Valve plans on releasing more details on Thursday at 10am PST.

Valve's tweet describes also Half-Life: Alyx as the company's "flagship VR game", meaning you'll probably need a virtual headset to play it.

Both "Half-Life" and "Half-Life 2" celebrate anniversaries this month, with the first game 21 years old, debuting on November 19, 1998, and the second now 15 years old, having released on November 16, 2004. It'll be interesting to revisit her now, particularly considering how much games and gamers' expectations have changed since we last saw her.

Valve may be announcing a new title in the Half Life series.

We wanna know why - No but as you said, the engine is now at a point where it's like, you can do this stuff now, right? According to some of the leaks we saw earlier, this will only be a small teaser followed by a full reveal at The Game Awards in December.

Although many many people will be eager to get their hands on another official Half-Life, Alyx will be something few will find themselves equipped to play.
