Now, the latest entry in the franchise is almost upon us.

Half-Life: Alyx will be compatible with all the Computer VR headsets including Valve Index, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The company has teased that the latest entry in the series will have a similar length to Half-Life 2 and that it wouldn't be an episodic game. This means that gamers will be getting a meaty new adventure in the world of Black Mesa, G-Man and those horrifying Xen aliens.

Ahead of the game launch, the Steam Store has been offering previous entries in the franchise completely free to the fans. However, it may only be available until the launch of Half-Life Alyx, so be sure to act quickly if you are looking to take advantage of this offer.
