  • Largest game team Valve has ever formed.
  • 1/3rd have worked on previous HL games. The recently acquired Campo Santo devs also helped.
  • Set between HL1 and HL2
  • Game length as long as HL2, with some players taking even longer, if they fall in love interacting with the world
  • Young Alyx recast. The actress is Ozioma Akagha: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4846460/
  • Vortigaunts, Combine Overwatch, G-Man have returning voice actors
  • Eli had to be recast because the voice actor died. He is played by James Moses Black this time: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1664127/
  • Marc Laidlaw did not work on this game as he has retired, but he has responded to questions about the HL universe the writers had
  • It will be compatible with all headsets, and all types of experiences, room scale, standing, sitting down..

If you want to push a hardware, you need a AAA Exclusive which is Valve trying to do. It is the first time I heard of a AAA VR exclusive game.  Valve made a lots of money from Steam so it can afford to take big risks. I’m sure that they will make a non VR mode once the storm settle down.

People who can't use VR can wait for the normal release. I just hope it happens, the trailer was good.

VR is pretty cheap now starting at $200 so not a big deal.

Won't be the same experience though. I have played the lab on a superior device with better VR motion tracker controllers and there was night and day difference. I am sure with index controllers and base station, the experience would be nothing short of exceptional.
