Play the whole series to catch up for its return.
This March was once covered like crazy, but a series of delays has cleared it up considerably. One game that’s still scheduled to hit on the month is the return of the legendary Half-Life series with the VR-focused Half-Life: Alyx. The title is set in-between the first and second games, but there’s hints that there may be some actual sequel tucked away in there somewhere. If you haven’t played the previous titles, or just need a brush up, now’s the perfect time.
Valve announced that until the game releases in March, the previous games in the series are free to play on PC via Steam. That includes Half-Life, Half-Life 2 and both Half-Life 2 post-release episodes, as well as Half-Life: Opposing Force, Blue Shift and Team Fortress Classic. That’s a lot of games to get through by March, so get cracking.
Half-Life: Alyx will release for PC as a VR-only title sometime in March. The previous Half-Life games will be free until that time.
