Just two days after Valve released new gameplay for Half-Life: Alyx , they have released 2 new previews for the game, that let you visit two new locations: City 17, and Russell’s Laboratory.
The City 17 environment lets you see the half-built Citadel from Half-Life 2, as it is still under construction during the events of Half-Life: Alyx. In Russell’s Laboratory, there is an array of different monitors around the room, possibly a resistance settlement in City 17, hiding from the Combine forces.
“The rendering technology available in SteamVR’s native environments is different than that in Half-Life: Alyx, and the interactivity is significantly lower than what the game itself provides,” Valve says; “So while these scenes do not have quite as much fidelity as they will in the actual game, we think they are a faithful enough translation to provide a fun VR preview of the game’s setting.”
Half-Life: Alyx launches on March 23rd.
