This isn’t the only crossover happening with Half-Life: Alyx, with the upcoming release of Death Stranding on PC also set to feature head crabs and gravity gloves.

Half-Life: Alyx is a prequel to Half-Life 2, where players return to City 17 as Alyx Vance. The game is only available in VR, and hopes to be a significant advancement of what we’ve come to expect from the platform.

Half-Life: Alyx is available now on Steam.
