Today on Valve News Network, we take a look at HLVR, or Half-Life: VR, Valve's next major game release. This is a single-player, story-driven, linear, VR FPS, set to release in 2019, and I'm talking about every single thing I know about this game. Since June of 2016, I have been studying this game, and this report is the fruits of over three years of labor. Half-Life: Alyx is a game set in the 20-year time-gap between Half-Life & Half-Life 2, and you play as Alyx Vance. The game will take you around different places in the Half-Life universe, as well as introduce new concepts to the franchise both mechanically and thematically that will stay with the game for years. As I was once told, "This may not be the single greatest VR game, but it is the single best Half-Life Game yet made." HLA! Get ready, it's coming very soon.
