Fight Half-Life’s the Combine in VR with ORIGIN PC
November 22, 2019 | By brian
When the first-person shooter (FPS) Half-Life debuted in 1998, it forever changed PC gaming by introducing then-new concepts such as nearly complete uninterrupted control of Gordon Freeman the main character, a seamless narrative, and realistic gameplay. When Half-Life 2 was released in 2004, it improved on its predecessor, earning tremendous acclaim. Today, it’s considered one of the greatest games of all-time.
After more than a decade of players eagerly awaiting an announcement on a Half-Life sequel, developer Valve announced the upcoming release of Half-Life: Alyx scheduled for release in March of next year. The fusion of FPS and virtual reality (VR) gameplay features the character Alyx Vance, introduced in Half-Life 2 as she and her father Eli fight the multidimensional alien empire known as the Combine seeking to occupy Earth. Players will get to use a feature called “gravity gloves” allowing creative uses such as picking up a distant pistol.
It’s worth noting that Half-Life: Alyx is exclusively a VR title, which means you’ll need a headset plus a VR-ready PC capable of handling the extra demands and processing power required by VR titles. At ORIGIN PC, we have the customizable systems ready for you to help Alyx Vance defeat the Combine.
