We recently heard about the growing success of Half-Life: Alyx and Valve Index VR Headset. The latest game and VR headset has completely revived VR Gaming and took it to the next level. Since the game is VR Only, its quite difficult for everyone to play it. First, you need a VR Headset, afterward, there are various settings. Well, it is a long period, and someone like me who would prefer non-VR version of the Half-Life: Alyx cannot enjoy it.


Valve expects non-VR mod from fans
There were some rumors about Valve releasing a non-VR version of Alyx. The rumors are true, but they are a bit different. According to the game’s programmer and designer Robin Walker, fan-made non VR mode could be a possibility.

In an interview with Polygon, Walker said, “I know it’s going to happen,” when asked about the likelihood that fans will begin to work on modding Half-Life: Alyx to make it playable with a mouse and keyboard. 

He further said that there was a reason why Valve made it VR Only. Once any fan-made non VR mod gets out, people will find out why it was VR only. Robin explained “have an even greater understanding” on their decision.

“It will clearly demonstrate to people why we did this in VR,” Walker said. “It will be a very crisp way of seeing all the stuff we got for the move into VR. If people play [a modded version on a standard display] and say this is just as good, that will teach me a lot. I will realize I’m wrong, and we didn’t get as much as we thought, and I love to know whenever I’m wrong.” 

Everyone wants a non-VR mod
Half-Life: Alyx without a doubt the best VR game for me. It has so many details and don’t get me wrong, the story is very well-mannered. Considering how popular it is on Steam, and looking at excellent reviews. Everyone would like to play the non-VR version of it. Fans often make great mods, we could expect one coming out soon.
