‘Half-Life: Alyx’ Celebrates 1st Anniversary With 40% Discount

Save big on Valve’s captivating VR shooter for a limited time.

Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of Half-Life: Alyx’s launch on SteamVR. In celebration of this momentous occasion, Valve is offering a limited-time discount on its award-winning first-person VR shooter.

Those who’ve yet to experience Valve’s expertly-crafted VR adventure can pick up the game for just $35.99 now through March 31st. That’s 40%-off the original price tag; a considerably large discount compared to the one offered this past November for 25%. Put simply, this is the cheapest the game’s been since launch, making it the perfect time to dive into one of the best VR games currently available on headsets.

Set five years before the events of Half-Life 2, Half-Life: Alyx has you stepping into the shoes of Alyx Vance; brilliant hacker, daring resistance fighter, and future sidekick to everyone’s favorite ass-kicking theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman. While out on a scouting mission, you soon find yourself on a heart-stopping journey through an alien-infested city in an effort to steal a mysterious superweapon that could put an end to the Combine’s global invasion.

Of course, not everything goes as planned and you soon find yourself struggling to survive a never-ending onslaught of horrific enemies and puzzling challenges. Equal parts shooter, adventure, horror, and puzzle game, Half-Life: Alyx blew us away with its beautifully-crafted environments, revolutionary VR gameplay, and captivating storyline.

And that’s not even mentioning the incredible mod scene that has rapidly developed since launch. Players have access to an ever-growing catalog of user-created mods that range from small improvements like additional weapons and improved visuals to larger creations such as original maps and game modes. One crazy bastard even went as far as to recreate the original Bioshock game inside HL:A. I mean, come on, that’s pretty incredible!

If you’ve yet to experience this incredible adventure, I implore you to take advantage of this limited-time offer before it ends on March 31st.

Half-Life: Alyx is available for $35.99 via SteamVR for a limited time.
