Half-Life: Alyx Finished Development

In a latest AMA session on Reddit, Half-Life: Alyx developers revealed the game is finished developing.

After a decade-long hiatus, Valve Corporation has returned to game developing but not essentially with Half-Life 3. Instead, they are offering players a brand-new VR experience though Half-Life 2 prequel game, Half-Life: Alyx.

During a recent AMA session on Reddit, dev team has revealed new information on HL: A, including the game is already pretty much complete and was worked on by largest development team in Valve history on board.

On previously set time, Alyx team joined fans for an AMA sharing many key-moments and promised that the game will absolutely not be delayed for launch in two months as they are done aside from some tweaking to its final scene.

Hearing that from developers themselves is a huge relief considering New Year of 2020 has seen a series of delay for many AAA-titles. Even Half-Life 2 was delayed for a year and players never saw release of Half-Life 2: Episode 3 till date.

They also added working with a development team of 80 members, which has been the largest one in history of Valve. Many of them and play-testers within studio have run through entire HL: A for more than once by now.

As they are expected, dev team is currently busy fixing bugs and polishing at this stage they are in to reach their planned release window. Keeping VR features in mind, Valve worked around with accessibility and possible movements.

Gameplay is focused on two-handed play at once but weapons are generally for one-handed use but players can grab them by offhand for steady aim while your other hand will be occupied with flashlight, gravity gloves and interactions.

In terms of game length, Alyx will roughly take as long as it would require to playthrough HL2. Players can of course put a bucket over headcrabs but they will be able to move it as they keep crawling and play-testers reported it as a bug.

Half-Life: Alyx has also changed voice actress Merle Dandridge for its protagonist and replaced her with Ozioma Akagha. Initially, Valve started working with Merle but then decided to approach a different route by the end.

In terms of voicing for a younger Alyx, Akagha makes more sense according to a past statement from designer Greg Coomer. Though it didn't made fans happy, many games have successfully changed voice actors in past for various reasons.

Mainline games of Half-Life series mostly had theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman in lead role, who is silent but deadly. However, upcoming VR-exclusive title will solely focus on his closest ally and recurring character Alyx Vance.

Fans were so excited following official announcement last year that there was a rise in selling of Valve Index VR headsets on a large number in Canada and North America, leading to stock shortages in many stores of those regions.

Though people are not getting their hands on HL3 just yet, at least a return to Half-Life universe is not that bad. Who knows, maybe events of HL: A can eventually bring back Gordon Freeman and make a third installment happen in future.

Lately, Valve has made entire Half-Life series of games free-to-play on Steam until release of Half-Life: Alyx in March 2020. So, you can take this time to go back to catch up to past events before entering the world of Alyx in virtual reality.

Entire narrative of the cinematic revolves around an unnamed female character who is a resident of New Orleans, living her daily life like everyone else until a fateful day when society has collapsed upon the rise of dead army.

Everyday citizens become violent scavengers looking for supplies and wouldn't hesitate to put down another or sacrifice people to a roaming horde for loot and it all comes back to that young girl who has now become an axe wielding survivor.

Set within the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead series by renowned Image Comics writer Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible), Saints & Sinners explores human stories in times of major crisis like a zombie apocalypse.

Players will have to deal more than swarm of undead hordes and continue struggling if they are to survive. Although it has nothing to do with Telltale Games, the game is a survival horror that follows choice-based storytelling.

RELATED: Cuphead Hits 5 Million Sales

Saints and Sinners VR game is set three years after initial outbreak took place and players will wander within New Orleans, where a powerful group called The Tower has control over everything and can be more threatening than a pack of zombies.

Entire campaign is around 15 hours worth of story, where you can come across other faction members and get into conflict. Your objective is to look for a lost bunker full of supplies and chop off some undead heads while you are at it.

Often times, VR games fail to give players a gameplay depth and many of them are simply an "immersive experience" through virtual reality but Skydance Interactive is trying their best to provide a proper gaming experience.

Doom Eternal, RAGE 2 and Wolfenstein Comes to Steam

Upcoming titles from Bethesda like Doom Eternal, RAGE 2 and Wolfenstein will be heading towards Steam.

In a heated war between Epic Games Store and Steam, developer/publisher Bethesda is apparently taking a stand against the former and is siding with the latter as they are about to bring some of their most anticipated titles to Valve's platform.

With a recent emergence of Epic Games' brand-new digital outlet, many game developers of the video game industry has sided with them by signing timed exclusives, leaving Steam behind with not much support and then, along came Bethesda.

Ever since Epic Games have launched their very own distribution platforms last year, Valve Corporation is suddenly getting some tough competition and even lost some major AAA-titles to their rivals like Metro Exodus and The Division 2.

In case of the above-mentioned games, developer studios have pulled of their titles that were already announced and available for pre-order on Steam for some time and moved them over to Epic Games Store for a lucrative exclusive deal.

Many yet to be released titles like Control, Phoenix Point and The Outer Worlds will also are heading to their store as well. Bethesda decided to pick a side in this waging war of exclusivities and will release some of their renowned franchises to Steam.

Players will get their hands on games like Doom Eternal, RAGE 2, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and Wolfenstein: Youngblood on their scheduled launch date now via Valve's distribution outlet, with possibility of more to join the march in future as well.

Also joining to the bunch later in 2019 is Fallout 76, arguably one of the worst games of 2018 for a series of mishaps including a buggy release and controversies for delivering cheap nylon bags over West Tek canvas duffel bag with its Power Armor Edition.

Many players on PC also decided to opt out from buying the game because of having to play it on official Bethesda launcher that everyone hates. However, a Steam release might finally have some interested customer eventually purchase it after all.

Though Steam is no way a perfect digital outlet at all, PC gamers do have a soft spot for the platform because of their pro-consumer behaviors like having a friendly refund policy and a dedicated forum for customers to help them out in need.

Bethesda letting Valve host their games takes a new turn in ongoing storefront wars between them and Epic. Hopefully, other publishers would consider being more friendly to their customer base on PC in future and will not be greedy for exclusive deals.
