Half-Life: Alyx

Half-Life: Alyx isn't Half Life 3, or even Half-Life 2: Episode 3. But it's a full-length VR Half-Life game, which is reason enough for excitement. On Thursday, Valve unveiled a bunch of details about the game, including this box art.

It's a VR game, but not just for Valve's Index headset. It'll work on all PC-based headsets. Those who own an Index will get it for free, though.
