Half Life Alyx feature

New Half-Life: Alyx gameplay videos showcase Russell’s Lab and City 17

Valve has released two environments/maps from Half-Life: Alyx that owners of the Valve Index can explore. As such, YouTube’s ‘2kliksphilip’ has decided to share two new gameplay videos in which he explores these environments.

The first video showcases Russell’s Lab, while the second video shows off City 17.

Do note, that these environments are not as interactive as their counterparts in the game itself. Still, they will give you a small glimpse at what you can expect from this new VR game.

Half-Life: Alyx is Valve’s VR return to the Half-Life series. The game tells the story of an impossible fight against a vicious alien race known as the Combine. Furthermore, the game is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

In Half-Life: Alyx, players will immerse themselves in deep environmental interactions, puzzle solving, world exploration, and visceral combat. Players will lean to aim around a broken wall and under a Barnacle to make an impossible shot. Players will also rummage through shelves to find a healing syringe and some shotgun shells.
