Well, here we are: the next Half-Lifeand we are definitely here for it. What Valve has called their “flagship” VR title, Half-Life Alyx has been a long time in the making. Set before Half-Life 2: Episode 2, players control Alyx Vance as she fights the alien combine. Similar to other entries in the series, Half-Life Alyx is a first-person shooter with puzzle elements, but this time around, the gameplay was designed around VR for a much more immersive experience. Half-Life Alyx will launch for $59.99 on Windows. It requires a VR headset to play.

The latest game from Ninja Theory is quite an interesting one. It’s an online arena brawler with a focus on heroes. Bleeding Edge has twelve different heroes to choose from and three different classes, damage, support and tank, which forces players to focus on creating the best team by mixing and matching the heroes. While most characters are melee-based, there are a few with ranged attacks amounting to a very unique title.
