Half-Life: Alyx is a virtual reality first-person shooter game developed and published by Valve. It was released in 2020 for Windows and Linux with support for most PC-compatible VR headsets. Set between the events of Half-Life (1998) and Half-Life 2 (2004), players control Alyx Vance on a mission to seize a superweapon belonging to the alien Combine. Like previous Half-Life games, Alyx incorporates combat, puzzles, exploration and survival horror. Players use VR to interact with the environment and fight enemies, using "gravity gloves" to manipulate objects, similarly to the gravity gun from Half-Life 2.
