Half-Life: Alyx will be one of the biggest releases this year when it comes to gaming. Not just for VR but for gaming fans all over the world.
As previously reported, Half-Life: Alyx is currently being built by a team of around 60. On average we see a team of around 100 – 1,500 people working on AAA game titles. According to Ubisoft Reflections managing director Pauline Jacquey, their team assigned around 400 to 600 people creating an Assassin’s Creed game.
About the game
Half-Life: Alyx is Valve’s VR return to the Half-Life series. It’s the story of an impossible fight against a vicious alien race known as the Combine, set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.
Playing as Alyx Vance, you are humanity’s only chance for survival. The Combine’s control of the planet since the Black Mesa incident has only strengthened as they corral the remaining population in cities. Among them are some of Earth’s greatest scientists: you and your father, Dr. Eli Vance.
As founders of a fledgling resistance, you’ve continued your clandestine scientific activity—performing critical research, and building invaluable tools for the few humans brave enough to defy the Combine.
Every day, you learn more about your enemy, and every day you work toward finding a weakness.
If you happen to own a Valve Index HMD and purchase the game you will also receive the following benefits as perks:
- Explore environments from Half-Life: Alyx in your SteamVR Home space
- Alternate gun skins to embellish Alyx’s arsenal
- Special Half-Life: Alyx-themed content for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2
Half Life: Alyx is set to release in March of 2020. You can check out their Steam page here and pre-order for $53.99.
During the AMA session with Valve, we’ll probably get to hear some in-depth developments about the game and maybe even get to see some new gameplay or trailers along with the session. We will be providing the updates here.
