Half-Life: Alyx dev talks VR, the future of the franchise (and a dream VR project)

Half-Life: Alyx has been a watershed moment for virtual reality gaming. Not only did it revive the long-dormant and much loved Half-Life franchise, but it saw the developers at Valve push the boundaries of what was possible in virtual reality. With gorgeous, triple-A visuals and a tactile and believable physics system, it’s not just a must-play VR game, but a must-play game – period.

That achievement is being celebrated this week, close to a year since Half-Life: Alyx’s initial release, as the BAFTA Game Awards has offered up four nominations in its 2021 awards ceremony to Valve. Taking place on Thursday 25 March, Half-Life: Alyx is in the running to win coveted accolades for ‘Artistic Achievement’, ‘Audio Achievement’, ‘Game Design’, and the top prize, ‘Best Game’.
