Video game developer
Velve has announced a brand-new Half-Life game that will be a VR-exclusive and
the biggest Velve project jet. Though this game is not exactly Half-Life 3 it
still looks quite impressive. The game is titled Half-Life: Alyx and the events
of the game take place somewhere between Half-Life and Half-Life 2 and follows
the story of Alyx Vance and her father Eli. In this game they form a resistance
to take on the invasion of the Combine – an alien force. This story will fill
in the story gap in which protagonist Gordon Freeman was in stasis.

announcement says that Half-Life: Alyx “was designed from the ground up and
features all of the hallmarks of a classic Half-Life game: world exploration,
puzzle solving, visceral combat, and an intricately woven story that connects
it all with the characters iconic to the Half-Life universe.”
The environment of the
game will be familiar for players who have played Half-Life 2. It will be set
in City 17 which is a dilapidated Eastern European city taken owner by alien
force Combine. In the trailer we also see some weaponry inspired by Half-Life 2
– Gravity Gloves. These gloves can be used as a battle tool. In Half-Life 2 the
gravity gun was given to Gordon Freeman and Alyx had gravity gloves. So, we can
assume that these gloves can also be used to lift, pull and throw objects
around. Though in VR there are probably a couple more things that you can do
with them. The gloves also show health status, you can see three hearts on the
