Half-Life: Alyx launched with a secret non-VR mode for developers

Valve Half-Life Alyx Robin Walker VR

After the successful launch of Valve's Half-Life Alyx virtual reality game yesterday, Valve has confirmed that the other three or possibly two VR title left, and first announced by Valve's Gabe Newell back in 2017 may not be in development.

And while many fans who are itching to get a look at Valve's latest game might be disappointed that Coomber's video is not a typical Let's Play, if you stick through the entire lesson you'll get a glimpse of Alyx's in-game apartment building and its, um, inhabitants.

Described as the return of the legendary Half-Life series, Half-Life: Alyx finally met with game lovers.

Interactivity is the key here, as the team at Valve specifically designed the game so players can interact with almost every object in Half-Life: Alyx's world in meaningful ways.

But Valve's game engine, which allows mod support, may still be our savior in this regard. Also like, what exactly is coming next for VR?

This is all a long way from a playable game, and Walker's prediction that a non-VR Alyx will inevitably be disappointing may well prove accurate.

Half-Life: Alyx was clearly designed for VR from the ground up and it shows.

Continuing his comments, Robin Walker said, "I'm looking forward to (Mode)". "Number of concurrent Twitch viewers (300k) is 7x the amount of concurrent players, showing that many are watching the game as they likely do not have the hardware to experience it themselves".

"As a result, when people reach the version without VR and lose all the things gained by turning to VR, they will understand very well why we made this choice". "So I think we've- obviously we get that question from many people". Also what's coming next for Half-Life?
