Half-Life: Alyx was just released a week ago and it was an absolute bomb. While it is not the Half-Life 3 that fans have always waited for, it is undeniably the best VR game currently on the market and a game that is worthy of the name of the Half-Life series.

New 'Level Editor' Feature So Players Can Their Own Content

While Half-Life: Alyx is a great game, once you have finished everything and discovered all the secrets, there are few reasons left for you to go back and play it again. But Valve knows this and they also know what could make people keep coming back to the game, a sandbox mode.

With this tool, the true potential of Half-Life: Alyx will be unleased by the creativity of millions of players. From one game, it will create thousands of other games that could even change the VR game industry.
