4. Valve released three new videos showing more details of its upcoming "Half-Life: Alyx" VR game. The much-anticipated title, which is set to come out on March 23, looks to include classic enemies such as headcrabs, Combine soldiers, and barnacles and semi-realistic gunfights, including manually reloading while being mobbed by said enemies. The videos also confirm that Alyx will still use Half-Life’s old-school health stations and medkits, offering a nod toward explaining them within the game’s fiction. The gameplay features a lot of different hand interactions, and Valve has actually promised that its Index controllers (see review below) will allow for extra options, although no specifics on that have been shared yet. Alyx will be VR-only but playable on any PC-based headset. Writer Adi Robertson points out, however, that anyone looking to purchase a VR headset to play the game will face difficulties, as Valve is still trying to restock its Index headsets, and Oculus Quest is heavily back-ordered, due to coronavirus-related delays. – THE VERGE
