Right, time to seize all of the salt in your instantly neighborhood. Pop to the retailers, when you should. Then sit down and browse this hearsay I don’t fairly consider a few VR-only Half-Life game that Valve are supposedly going to announce on December 12th.

According to a Pastebin poster who refers to their supply as “the same user” who leaked the existence of Dota Underlords, the VR game known as Half-Life: Alyx. No actual additional particulars about this game which may or may not exist are identified at the moment. This suits Valve’s announcement from 2017 that they have been constructing three VR games, however yunno, so would an excellent hoax. Make your individual thoughts up why not.

A further document exhibits screenshots of somebody known as “Midoriyan” sharing elements of an interview transcript. It’s carried out by Geoff Keighley, the host of The Game Awards, interviewing Robin Walker and somebody who the doc guesses is Gabe Newell. Towards the top, the transcript identities Keighley as happening to say “Speaking of “Half-Life: Alyx”, (It might be at) The Game Awards, December 12th. We may have extra to share with you on the game there so I hope you get to tune in. I’m excited to indicate extra of it there.”

Keighley seems to ask why they’ve opted for VR-only, to which an ambigous respondent says: “Yeah, I mean we would love to be delivering a version of this that you could play with a mouse and a keyboard, but like as we said, it began as an exploration of VR”.

The doc additionally claims that “Midoriyan” has “been confirmed to the same person who leaked Underlords, and they’ve been confirmed by both ‘testinglol’ and Tyler McVicker to not be lying about their identity.”

Tyler McVicker runs a fairly large fan web site known as the Valve News Network, and he’s messing around on Twitter fairly than denying his hyperlink to this doc that I presume he may have seen. I’d choose a means of confirming the supply’s identification as a beforehand confirmed leaker that didn’t contain so many assumptions, however right here we’re. It’s believable.

Here’s the one half within the supposed interview the place supposed Gabe Newall talks in regards to the game:

“You can see their whole body– Respond to the situation. You know, panicking, dropping clips on the ground as they fumble their weapons ’cause a zombie’s in front of them, all these things, they’re just – it’s been really fun watching playtests.”

Thoroughly informative, that. Ta possibly Gabe.

It can be a savvy transfer. Making a VR unique Half-Life game would clearly assist Valve promote Vives. There are a number of causes to consider this leak is legit.

I’ll consider it once I see it.
