Half-Life: Alyx

Half-Life: Alyx Box Art

Half-Life: Alyx is a VR-exclusive shooter and the first entry in the series since 2007. It is not the long-awaited continuation to Half-Life 2: Episode 2, but rather a tie-in that takes place between the events of the first and second games. Players take control of Alyx Vance, and together with her father Eli, mount a resistance against the Combine’s invasion of Earth.

The game is built from ground-up for VR, and supports every SteamVR-compatible headset including HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, and Valve’s own Index. Input-wise, it works with both button-based and modern finger tracking systems.
