Half Life Alyx-7

Here are the minimum PC requirements for running Half-Life: Alyx

Valve has revealed the official minimum PC requirements for its next Half-Life game, Half-Life: Alyx. According to the specs, PC gamers will at least need an Intel Core i5-7500 or an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 with 12GB of RAM.

Valve also lists the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1060 and the AMD Radeon RX580 as the game’s minimum GPU requirements. Unfortunately, there is no word on whether the game will support a low-level API like DirectX 12 or Vulkan.

Half-Life: Alyx is set in the 20 year time gap between Half-Life and Half-Life 2. The game will be using Source 2 Engine and will feature a single-player, story-driven linear FPS campaign. The game will also heavily utilize physics and will include a physical player body.

Half Life Alyx will come out in March 2020 and, as Valve has explained, it will be playable only on VR devices.

Below you can find the game’s minimum PC requirements.

    • Processor: Core i5-7500 / Ryzen 5 1600
    • Memory: 12 GB RAM

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
