If you’ve wanted to catch up on the Half-Life series in time for Half-Life: Alyx (and haven’t picked the games up during a Steam sale), then Valve has an awesome offer for you. You can play the entire series for free on Steam until April 1. That gives you plenty of time to fill yourself in on the story before Half-Life: Alyx’s release date, which is slated for sometime in March.
The games included in the free-play promotion include Half-Life, Half-Life: Opposing Force, Half-Life: Blue Shift, Half-Life: Source, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, and Half-Life 2: Episode Two.
The Half-Life series is regarded as one of the all-time greats. It puts you in the role of scientist Gordon Freeman, moments before a horrible catastrophe takes place at the Black Mesa Research Facility. Strange monsters start roaming the hallways, claiming the bodies of Gordon’s co-workers and being general nuisances. It’s your job to escape and get to the bottom of what’s going on.
As for the upcoming Half-Life: Alyx, it’s a virtual-reality exclusive. Thankfully, pretty much anyone with a VR headset that can connect to a PC will be able to play it. The game will be compatible with the Valve Index, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest (with Link), HTC Vive headsets, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. You can pre-order it on Steam for $54 USD.
