After today’s reveal and subsequent info-dump of Half-Life: Alyx content, Geoff Keighley announced that there’s more to come at The Game Awards ceremony, scheduled to take place early next month on December 12.
Valve revealed Half-Life: Alyx yesterday after much speculation and a long-awaited confirmation earlier in the week. The game places you in the shoes of Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2 and serves as a prequel, set between the events of Half-Life 1 and 2.
The game was built from the ground-up for VR and won’t be coming to traditional PC displays. However, it will work with any SteamVR headset with motion controllers, granted you have a computer that meets the minimum requirements as well.
We got a beautiful and exhilarating first look at the game in the reveal trailer yesterday. We’ve also covered a bunch of other new details on the game, including support for ‘community built environments‘, the locomotion options available, and some of the exclusive optional interactions that are only available with Valve Index controllers.
However, it won’t be long before we get even more details, and hopefully some more footage, of Half-Life: Alyx. On Twitter yesterday, Geoff Keighley wrote, “Stay tuned to #TheGameAwards on December 12 for more on Half-Life: Alyx, and lots more to tell in 2020!”
Fingers crossed that we get another trailer or a proper look at some gameplay at The Game Awards. It won’t be the only VR component of the night though – The Game Awards will also feature a Best VR/AR Game category, for which Beat Saber, Blood & Truth, Asgard’s Wrath and more are nominated this year.
