Valve has announced it will be releasing its Half-Life virtual reality game Half-Life: Alyx on March 23, 2020. This means the game will be released as originally planned and will not be delayed.
According to a recent announcement, the game will take place between Half-Life and Half-Life 2. It can be considered a prequel to Half-Life 2. In the game Alyx Vance and her father Eli mount an early resistance to the Combine's brutal occupation of Earth.
In VR, players will be able to make use of "gravity gloves" to manipulate objects in 3D space similarly to the iconic gravity gun introduced in Half-Life 2. The game is expected to introduce several other new enhancements not seen before in the franchise.
