Rise and shine

After all these years, the next chapter in Valve's unshakable sci-fi saga is nearly upon us. Half-Life: Alyx will release on March 23, 2020, with support for the Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift headsets.

"Pre-order bonuses for anyone who has purchased a Valve Index will start rolling out the week of March 2, beginning with Steam VR Home environments inspired by locations in Half-Life: Alyx," Valve announced today. "We will have more information on upcoming Valve Index availability soon."

I feel like the less I know going in, the better, but if you're curious about the scope of the game, Half-Life: Alyx is said to be comparable to Half-Life 2 "in terms of total amount of content." The built-for-VR game is set between Half-Life 1 and 2, and you'll "battle to save the future of humanity: engaging in visceral combat, solving puzzles, and exploring a world decimated by a mysterious alien race."

If you're in a Half-Life mood, it's worth remembering that the whole dang series is free to play on Steam right now. That promotion extends until Alyx's launch day on March 23, so you can marathon it.
