I haven't played a VR game that felt like a real full game yet, so strongly waiting and seeing. Cool that the series isn't dead though.

No offense to Half-Life fans (I've never played it), but if they're going to make a VR game, how about a Left 4 Dead VR game.

I've heard for so long how amazing they are, but I'm afraid they wouldn't hold up as well at this point, being 15 and 20 years old. I'll probably never get around to playing them anyway.

L4D2 is still solid. I haven't fired it up in a year or so, but now I want to. It's such a fantastic game.

Isn't Dead by Daylight more or less a newer version of L4D?

I mean, cool I guess... but a total let down when what I've wanted for like 15 years is Half-Life 3.

Dead by Daylight is nothing like L4D.

for you left 4 dead fans, the Left 4 Dead creator's are working on Back 4 Blood it will be a spiritual successor to the Left 4 Dead series.

Thanks for the heads up! I loved Left 4 Dead back in the day, and Back 4 Blood looks fun. The only thing that worries me is that Evolve was literally the worst game I've ever bought.

All they did was announce they're making something. Highly doubt they're far in any development.

lol aren't you a bag of sunshine. i just wanted fans of the game to know that the people that made it are working on another game, so they can keep an eye out for it.

imagine if instead of this it would have been Half Life 3 and it is going to be a VR exclusive lol there would be such an outrage followed by VR Headsets being sold out everywhere.

I think if this did well we'd likely see some other Valve VR games.. but I don't know. I don't have the time or energy to play a Half Life VR game. I'm sure I'll check it out at some point, but if I have to buy their hardware to play it, fudge that. I'll just youtube it.

Looks like it has plenty of Wii 2.0 VR motion control nonsense. But hey, it's Half-Life, so I'll be playing it.

Valve Index owners get it for free. That's a pretty sweet perk.

i'll play it in 2+ years when i think VR is more worth getting into. i rather play with ultra settings than with potato graphics and gimmick game play, that and most VR games are really short, but for those that want to give it a shot and not pay over 1k, the Rift S will be on sale on BF for $350

Damnit.

In addition to Index, Hale-Life: Alyx will be compatible with the HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality, and Oculus Rift headsets. Oculus Quest headsets will also work when connected to a PC via USB cable.

Honestly the best way to VR is with a a PC. Something less powerful would probably look like crap.

PS4 VR isn't crap. I mean it could be better, but it's pretty amazing really.

They demo's this with a Valve Index, damn the finger tracking... honestly if I was going to get a VR headset on PC Valve Index would be the one I would get.

VR is something I want, but I get motion sickness easily... I know the PSVR was ok but it was one damn game.

i guess it depends on the person. i'm used to ultra graphics and high refresh rates i tried VR on PC and it looked like potato pc graphics and the game play felt like a gimmick, so it's hard for me to imagine it would be a better experience on something like a PS4

Oh yeah baby! Not only do Valve Index owners get the game for free. The game is ALREADY IN MY ACCOUNT, that's awesome! The wait is going to suck!

It actually is really fun. H3VR(Hotdogs, Horseshoes, and Handgrenades), Blade and Sorcery, Organ Quarter, Arizona Sunshine, Compound, Pavlov VR, GORN, SuperHot VR, and a ton of other games work wonderfully. There just needs to be bigger game experience and I hope that HL: Alyx and Boneworks will be a major injection into the VR scene.

The Index is $1k? Balls. New kid on the way, no way I can swing that.... Yet.

Yeah... 1k isn't feasible for anyone with children.

I got pretty bad motion sickness trying Borderlands 3 on PS4 VR. I wonder if this is any better. It would absolutely suck to shell out so much money and not be able to play it.
