This next-level immersive VR ‘masterpiece’ is 40% off right now

Reviewers have called this game the greatest VR game ever made with cinematic storytelling, visuals, and sound that showcases the immersion that VR is capable of.

It might not be the Half-Life we wanted, but Half-life: Alyx is a fantastic VR prequel to what many consider the best video game of all time.


Taking place five years before the events of Half-Life 2, you play as a teenage Alyx, the daughter of Dr. Eli Vance. You both join the human resistance, fight aliens, and steal resources from the Combine that took over Earth.

Half-Life: Alyx is the best that VR, and Valve, have to offer. It’s a VR masterpiece.”



If you’ve got an Oculus Quest, HTC Vive, Valve Index, or Windows Mixed reality headset and haven’t played Half-Life: Alyx, today’s your lucky day. The immersive VR game is 40% off right now on Steam. It’s still $36, but it sure beats paying $60.

No VR?

What if you don’t have VR? There’s actually an Alyx mod on GitHub that lets you play without VR, but at a cost. It’s not the same, but still very gratifying.



If you’re like me, impatiently waiting for Half-Life 3 to eventually (hopefully) arrive, this will hold you over and bring back some serious G-Man and Citadel vibes.
