Recently Released Half-Life: Alyx Screenshots Tease New Enemies And Environments
Take a look at some of the baddies you’ll be facing in Valve’s upcoming Half-Life VR game.

This March Half-Life: Alyx will make its highly-anticipated debut on VR headsets, marking the first official release of a Half-Life game in 13 years. The first of three upcoming VR titles currently in development by Valve, the company promises the Half-Life: Alyx will set a new standard for modern VR gaming, offering players a visceral immersive experience unlike anything available at the moment.

While information regarding the prequel/sequel hybrid remains scarce, yesterday an Imgur user by the name of TheJQKTeam dropped a handful of never-before-seen screenshots supposedly showing off a variety of new enemies and locations. While it’s unclear how these assets were obtained, the images featured in the post appear to be legit. Alongside each photo posted is a small caption providing additional context.


  • “New error model for Source 2, thinner lettering.”

  • “Warning sign with Combine language writing.”

  • “Building under construction.”

  • “Possible Cremator remake from the Half Life 2 Beta.”

  • “Canals screenshot, allegedly cropped to prevent story spoilers.”

  • “Same models in front, with the guy in the back being a newly designed Elite unit. Also Combine scanner in the back with new decals on it.”

  • “New models for the Combine that we saw in the trailer, white suits instead of grey.”

One such photo supposedly features the Cremator, an older enemy class featured briefly in the Half-Life 2 beta. Another appears to showcase the gruesome remains of an individual ravaged by a face-hugging headcrab. What really gets my engine revving, however, is the “error” model, a small tease of the modding capabilities promised by Valve. The company has stated that Half-Life: Alyx will launch alongside a series of developer tools that will allow users to create their own maps and game modes.

Half-Life: Alyx arrives this March on the Valve Index, HTC Vive/Vive Pro, Windows Mixed Reality, Oculus Rift/Rift S, and Oculus Quest via Oculus Link.
