You know it's coming and now is the day here: Half-Life 3 has been announced and is exclusive to the Epic Game Store. The announcement from Valve is not a surprise since Half-Life 3 will be called Valve Index.
Valve will release Half-Life 3 as exclusive to the new VR Valve Index header, the HTC Vive successor, which he co-developed with the manufacturer of smartphones. HTC has a future Vive headset in production and launch at the end of this year, with Valve continuing to work with HTC on these headsets, making Half-Life 3 a part of this huge year in hardware releases for the company.
Half-Life 3 will see you play Gordon Freeman again, the game with the Valve engine has its own Source 3.0 engine next generation, which will be used for a good effect in the new Orange Box. The new Orange Box in Valve will consist of new games from the developer, including Half-Life 3, Portal 3, Left 4 Dead 3, Team Fortress 3 and CS: GO 2.
The whole package costs $ 50 and is available at Steam from April 1
Yes, of course, this is a joke of April, and I'm sorry if some of you were cheated or angry because of this. I have Aussie to dig, that's what we do. I want all these things to actually happen, and Valve has to step out of his ass and do something about it. I sincerely hope that we will see a new industry moment when Valve could beat all other developers and digital distribution platforms into their ass.
Things are really dragged with the new releases of the game from Valve, which is a two-way issue: first, Valve is a private company. He does not report to a large conglomerate or a board of investors, which means that we do not just launch new games in legendary franchises, such as Portal and Half-Life every year, as we make another franchise, like Call of Duty.
But the other side of the coin means that Valve has the freedom to do whatever it wants, and to create something that leaves a long-lasting influence. Just like almost every game they released. Just think about this list:
- Half-Life 2
- Portal 2
- Team Fortress
- Team Fortress 2
- Left 4 Dead
- 19659018] Counter-Strike
- CS: GO
- Dota 2
Each game on this list improved with a new release, and most of these games were released many, many years ago. Imagine new games from Valve with new game mechanics, graphics, AI, the new Steam (layout, interface, features, etc.) and more. Valve could do this, and I hope that we will get it (much) sooner rather than later.
Valve, do it.
