A brand new Half-Life is coming, and whereas it is not Half-Life 3, and even Episode 3, it feels superb to sort that out. Half-Life: Alyx is a VR spin-off set earlier than Half-Life 2, although, so what in regards to the sequence’ future and different platforms? Whereas we most likely will not see Alyx seem exterior of VR, Valve nonetheless has plans for Half-Life past the newest outing.
The Verge requested designer David Speyrer if this was a full return to Half-Life and if we might anticipate extra video games within the sequence now that Valve has lastly introduced it out of stasis. He confirmed that it was, including that Valve’s discovered information methods to inform tales and make video games via Half-Life: Alyx’s growth that it desires to proceed to discover.
“It’s probably no surprise that many people at Valve have been wanting to get back to the Half-Life universe for a long time, and this experience has only reinforced that,” he stated. “In the process of creating Half-Life: Alyx, we’ve had to explore new ways to tell stories with these characters and this world, and we’ve discovered a lot of new gameplay experiences that go beyond what we’ve been able to do before. Of course, we’ll have to wait and see how people react to Half-Life: Alyx once it’s out, but we’d love to continue pushing forward.”
After years of ready, it appears like we’re nearer than ever to Half-Life 3, however for all of the anticipation I am more and more glad that Valve’s return to the sequence is one thing a bit completely different, relatively than the sequel we have been hungering for. Whereas some would possibly rankle on the considered shelling out £300 for a headset, on the low finish, it is about time VR had a system-selling recreation.
