Half-Life: Alyx gets a “steamy” 40% anniversary discount

If you own a VR headset, chances are that you’ve heard of Half-Life: Alyx. Everyone seems to agree that it’s totally the best thing since sliced bread. Then again, sliced bread doesn’t cost 50 euros or dollars. If it does, your bakery probably uses a different white powder instead of flour. But I digress. You might have had second thoughts on getting Half-Life: Alyx because of the price tag. Good news, Freeman! Steam is treating you to a 40% discount because of Alyx’s anniversary.

Yes, Half-Life: Alyx just got a nice price cut, making this piece of VR marvel slightly more affordable. For just 30 smackeroonies, you can now join in on this epic Half-Life adventure. If you are new to the world of Virtual Reality and have no clue what I’m talking about, have a glance at the trailer below.

Now, I hear you thinking: “30 is still a hefty price for this VR gimmick”, and normally I’d agree with you. Most VR games are merely a few hours long and feel like a tech demo of a grander project. Not Alyx though. Half-Life Alyx is a full-fledged game that will approximately take 8 hours to complete. So this isn’t just a diluted game experience. And let’s be fair. You’ve likely spent double the price on games that roughly took you 8 hours to finish.

So what are you waiting for? Alyx isn’t just gonna come to you, so go get it, for Pete’s sake. And if you’re wondering if this anniversary deal comes with complimentary cake, you’re shit out of luck. It doesn’t.
