Half-Life: Alyx May Come to PSVR 2
Valve's Half-Life: Alyx might make its way to Sony's PSVR 2, sources say.
Half-Life: Alyx, may soon find its way to PSVR 2. This is according to XboxEra’s Nick Baker. Sony unveiled its next-generation VR gaming headset this week, called PSVR 2. In the tweet, Baker stated that Valve and Sony came to a deal to bring Alyx to PSVR2. He continued by saying “I thought this was one of those open secrets?” This implies that people were already speculating that the latest entry in the Half-Life series would make its way to Sony‘s PSVR 2.
From what I’ve been told, they have. Not sure when it’s happening though. I thought this was one of those open secrets? https://t.co/RPrdPArDLc

Half-Life: Alyx, released in 2020, was critically acclaimed and won multiple game awards in 2020. Valve wanted to create a game that would help make VR mainstream. The game is set between Half-Life 1 and 2. Seeing a new Half-Life game in 2020 was a surprise, to be sure, but a welcomed one. Not only did Valve succeed in making a mainstream VR game, they also paved the way for future AAA titles on VR headsets.
Currently, Half-Life: Alyx is only available on steam on Windows compatible VR headsets. Bringing the title to the PSVR 2 makes a lot of sense in terms of widening its reach. If the deal goes through, expect to hear more about this news later this year. Valve currently offers its own VR headset, the Valve Index, which starts at $999. A base current generation PSVR has an MSRP of $499. While we do not know the price of the PSVR 2, we can expect it to be somewhere in between the Index and PSVR.
Sony also announced a new VR title, Horizon Call of the Mountain as a launch title. There was no mention of when the new VR set and title will release, although some expect a release late this year. Some sources even claim that it might release sooner than that but we will just have to wait and see. Let us know what you think about Half-Life: Alyx potentially making its way to the PSVR 2.
