Half-Life Alyx: Levitation mod is out today

  • November 25, 2022

Levitation, a mod that continues the story of Valve’s hit VR game Half-Life: Alyx, is now available on Steam (opens in new tab). The mod picks up right after the events of Half-Life: Alyx, bringing the titular character and her pal Russell back to City 17 to save her friends, and possibly the whole resistance.

Half-Life: Alyx – Levitation has gone from announcement to completion in very short order, especially in comparison to the development of the game itself: It was only revealed (opens in new tab) in April this year. The final result is scaled back a wee bit from what was initially promised—the story is expected to run 3-4 hours, rather than 4-5—but even so it sounds like a very beefy experience, with eight levels featuring new voice lines and character animations. The launch trailer looks pretty great, too.
