  • Set between Half-Life and Half-Life 2, Valve have now properly announced Half-Life: Alyx (updated)

    Half-Life: Alyx, the first Half-Life title in far too long has now been officially revealed with the Steam store page for it now available and you can also pre-purchase. However, their email clearly stated that Half-Life: Alyx will be "Free for owners of the Valve Index VR headset".

    This is a title built from the ground up for Virtual Reality, so only those with a VR kit will be able to play. Valve said it has "all of the hallmarks of a classic Half-Life game" including exploration, puzzle solving, visceral combat and a story that connects it all together with the Half-Life universe. Valve also said it will be compatible with "all PC-based VR headsets", it's powered by their own Source 2 game engine and it will release in March 2020.

  • Humble are giving away Serial Cleaner free for their Fall Sale now live

    You have around 72 hours to grab Serial Cleaner completely free, along with the start of the Humble Store Fall Sale.

    As always, there's tons of titles on sale. Plenty of indie games, plus multiple publishers have all put their games up with big discounts on them too.

  • BATTLETECH Heavy Metal has firmly stomped its way to release

    BATTLETECH Heavy Metal, the latest expansion to the turn-based strategy game that has you fight with massive lumbering 'mechs is out now.

    We've been told this is the definitive expansion, so it's likely to be the last as Harebrained Schemes move onto their next game. Quite an exciting expansion though and the naming of the expansion is very on point, since it comes with a bunch of classic 'mech designs from the original ​BATTLETECH​ board game plus a new 'mech designed just for Heavy Metal.

Half-Life: Alyx Releasing In March 2020

  • Half-Life: Alyx Releasing In March 2020 With Linux Support

    Half-Life: Alyx is powered by SteamVR on Valve's Source Engine 2. On Linux that means Vulkan rendering. Half-Life: Alyx will work with all PC-based VR headsets.

    More details on Half-Life: Alyx at Half-Life.com and the Steam page. It's been close to a year since last pulling out the HTC Vive, so at least this will make for a fun and fresh Linux VR look next year.
