The VR segment of gaming has always been interesting. These games immerse you in fantastic worlds like you\u2019re there in real life. There have been a ton of successful games in this space, but one of the most anticipated is <i>Half-Life: Alyx<\/i>. It\u2019s definitely a novel direction that Valve is taking compared to the rest of the Half-Life series.\r\n\r\nMany were hoping for a legitimate third entry, but a VR title seems pretty interesting in its own right. It will be the first time this series has entered the VR sector, and judging by trailer highlights, it\u2019s looking like an amazing experience. We now know the game is set to release officially on March 23. Valve made this announcement on their official Twitter page. It looks like they aren\u2019t going to be facing any major delays.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=WVppyZdUg-Q\r\n\r\nThat\u2019s great news if you\u2019ve been a die-hard fan of this series all the way back to the original. It\u2019s rare that you find a series with as much support as the Half-Life franchise. Valve certainly knew what they were doing with this project and have delivered some of the best video games of all time according to many.\r\n\r\nSure, this VR release isn\u2019t <i>Half-Life 3<\/i> like many had hoped for, but at least the series is still moving forward. Valve looks to be fully utilizing this VR technology, too. We\u2019ve seen trailers of some of the gameplay firsthand, where the player moves objects out of the way on a shelf to get bullets. Now this sequence may not seem like a big deal, but if you\u2019ve played any VR title, the sequence shows a lot of promise.\r\n\r\nEven small details like loading your gun seem so real. That bodes well for the combat in this game, which seems to be built around interesting character interactions and intense bullet fights. March 23rd isn\u2019t that too far away if you really think about it.\r\n\r\nThe month-long wait will be worth it considering how long the Half-Life series has been absent from the gaming community. Fans have only been able to enjoy the series by going back and playing the first two games. They\u2019re amazing by all accounts, but it\u2019s nice to see Valve pick up where they left off.\r\n\r\nIf <i>Alyx<\/i> is successful, it wouldn\u2019t be surprising to see Valve make more VR titles going forward. And hopefully, fans still are treated to <i>Half-Life 3<\/i>. Anything is possible at this point.
