Half-Life: Alyx is priced 40 percent off through the end of March to mark the one-year anniversary of the release of Valve’s VR masterpiece.
The game is priced at $35.99 through March 31, down from its typical price of $59.99. You can buy it now on Steam and if you haven’t played it already, and you own a PC VR headset, the discount should get some of the last remaining hold outs to experience Valve’s incredible world. We rated it five stars out of five in our review last year and, since release, Valve added Steam Workshop support allowing players to mod the game into a range of game modes and environments. Valve also added more than three hours of commentary to the game with some deep insight into the title’s design.
Half-Life: Alyx also won a lot of best of VR awards and it remains a major milestone in virtual reality game design. We’re intensely curious, of course, what Valve might be planning for the future since there’s deisre for the fabled Half-Life 3 that fans have been hoping to see for many years and there’s clearly a huge amount of VR design experience within the company. Is Valve likely to make that sequel without VR? The upcoming Sony VR headset might also be a candidate for release of Half-Life: Alyx, though that headset isn’t releasing in 2021 and the possibility of Half-Life: Alyx coming to it remains complete speculation at this point.
