Tested has gotten some hands-on time with Valve’s highly anticipated Half-Life: Alyx, resulting in around 30 minutes of gameplay footage for you to tuck into. What’s more, a Half Life: Alyx PSVR release sounds like it may yet be on the cards, according to a new report.

First things first. Check out the Half-Life: Alyx gameplay below.
Next up, there’s fresh hope that Half-Life: Alyx may yet make the jump to PSVR, although it appears nothing is in the pipeline right now.
Speaking with Push Square, Valve’s Greg Coomer reiterated that the “initial” versions of the new Half-Life game will be “available for SteamVR only.” He added: “We believe Sony’s VR platform has been a huge success for the medium, and we assume that lots of Sony customers would love to experience this new chapter of Half-Life.”
Cooper added that a PSVR version of Half-Life: Alyx is not currently in production “because we’re very focused on the initial release.” Despite this, he assured fans that Valve has “not ruled anything out.”
Half-Life: Alyx is currently pencilled in for a March 2020 release. Here’s the official blurb for more info:
Set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2, Alyx Vance and her father Eli mount an early resistance to the Combine’s brutal occupation of Earth.
The loss of the Seven-Hour War is still fresh. In the shadow of a rising Combine fortress known as the Citadel, residents of City 17 learn to live under the rule of their invaders. But among this scattered population are two of Earth’s most resourceful scientists: Dr. Eli Vance and his daughter Alyx, the founders of a fledgling resistance.
You and your father were relocated to City 17. In the years since, you’ve continued your clandestine scientific activity—performing critical research, and building invaluable tools for the few humans brave enough to defy the Combine.
Every day you learn more about your enemy, and every day you work toward finding a weakness.
