Half-Life Alyx can now be played on Steam Deck and without VR glasses, all thanks to the community
Much has been said about how Valve, despite not releasing many games, when they do they break the market. Half-Life: Alyx is proof of this, because not only did it recover the saga that had been lying fallow for 13 years, but it also came as an impeccable VR experience. Now, and apart from that version modded by the community to run the game without glasses on PC, Half-Life: Alyx Arrives on Steam Deck.
Thus, the mode “Half-Life Alyx Non-VR“It opens optimized for the American laptop as a half-baked project, and at the moment we can only play up to level 7. However, do not despair, and it is that although the team of modders behind still has work ahead, they promise to continue updating and improving the mode.
Regarding the current version of the game on Steam Deck, it is appreciated certain errors and there is still room for improvement in the interface or stability of the game, but the team is committed to the work. Of course, as you might expect, you need to have a legal key of Half-Life: Alyx on your system and Steam account, since the mode modifies the official version and adapts it to a foreEsports Extrasgame mode.
Without a doubt, what the community does is spectacular, and it is that we are talking about a work done solely and exclusively by the users. Valve has had nothing to do with it, but the result is phenomenal. This mode in question modifies the base game and adapts it to a format of first person where the movement of the camera is done with the joystick or the mouse, in case you play it on PC.
A huge step forward for a community eager to see more Valve games, not just the Half-Life saga. The next step for Newell’s is Counter-Strike 2, which right now is enjoying a closed beta and will launch its full version in the summer.
