Valve shared three gameplay videos for the upcoming VR shooter Half-Life: Alyx, demonstrating the movement system as well as combat elements.
Today we’re releasing three gameplay videos, showing a variety of environments and play styles. Each one is a live capture of the game running in real-time, featuring one of the locomotion mode options available to players: Teleport, Shift, and Continuous.
Half-Life Alyx is playable with all SteamVR-compatible headsets. Bonus content for those who own Valve Index hardware prior to Half-Life: Alyx’s release will start rolling out this Wednesday, starting with a set of SteamVR Home environments showcasing locations from the game.
About Half-Life: Alyx
Alyx allows players to return to the Half-Life series. The events of the game take place between those of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. Playing as Alyx Vance, you are humanity’s only chance for survival. The Combine’s control of the planet since the Black Mesa incident has only strengthened as they corral the remaining population in cities. Among them are some of Earth’s greatest scientists: you and your father, Dr. Eli Vance.
As founders of a fledgling Resistance, you’ve continued your clandestine scientific activity—performing critical research and building invaluable tools for the few humans brave enough to defy the Combine.
Immerse yourself in deep environmental interactions, puzzle-solving, world exploration, and visceral combat.
Lean to aim around a broken wall and under a Barnacle to make an impossible shot. Rummage through shelves to find a healing syringe and some shotgun shells. Manipulate tools to hack alien interfaces. Toss a bottle through a window to distract an enemy. Rip a Headcrab off your face and throw it out the window.
