*Theory:* Valve noticed HL2:VR with the Oculus Rift. While experimenting in Half-Life 3's development, Valve thought it would be fun to make a Half-Life VR game, but not have Half-Life 3 as a VR due to motion sickness (like with the adhesive gel in Portal 2's development) and possibly because of potential backlash from fans (such as 'I can't afford VR, this sucks, etc.'). So it would make sense for Valve to go ahead with a HL:VR game that's fun and all, but wouldn't disrupt their flagship series, especially with something as controversial for them like Half-Life 3. Projects have been scrapped and recycled to give life to new things, like Episode 3 mutating into Stars of Blood (despite that being scrapped too). This doesn't mean Half-Life 3 will stop development, it will happen. I'm guessing HL:VR will use some HL3 assets & coding. A HL:VR game would be a tremendous breath of fresh (Half-Life) air, reassure fans who have given up hope, and buy Valve more time to make Half-Life 3 perfect. (Also I *am* disappointed with the whole Artifact thing but I know how Valve works internally as a company so I really can't argue. I'm still disappointed though because it makes Valve look like they don't give a rip at all and it gives fellow fans a false sense of hopelessness).

UNITY!!!! Valve already has a good game engine, In fact 2!!!! 3 IF YOU COUNT GOLD SOURCE!!!!!!! Why would valve run their VR games in unity if they've done so much with Gold Source, Source, and Source 2. Do they not think it's good enough for VR? I'm not raging, I'm just confused.

"HLVR player" might not refer to the person playing the game, but some sort of video player or other output on the VR device

I hate Valve, let me tell you why. They created the best PC FPS ever, it was fantastic for it's time and is STILL impressive now. They gave us 2 add-ons that were just as good!, we all loved them but everything stopped for years until HL 2 and it's add ons. {I dont rate HL2 anywhere near HL and its add ons} but we all rushed out and bought them anyway like loyal customers. Valve treats requests for HL3 and a bit of a nuisance, Oh stop asking about it like naughty children. I bought HL at least 4 times over many years, I also bought ALL the HL2 stuff, I recently bought the wonderful "Fan made" update {the best £15 you will ever spend} .Listen Valve, it's the money I and all the other fans gave you that you have built your empire on, who ever heards of a business that takes absolutly no notice of loyal fans. You make me sick

btw, in destinations and at valves introduction to a VR controller they used hands/glove and other props that are listed in this video http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/283336/Devs_show_off_Valves_new_VR_controller_prototype.php last video at the bottom, nothing much of an interest just thought i'd let you know.

I will take a VR HL title, if that's what it takes to play another HL game. I will. After seeing the Aperture Robot Repair demo, it could really do a lot for it, game-mechanics wise. Maybe this could even be a test for HL3, maybe a little too optimistic, but, I guess we'll see?
Bubble Double (1 year ago)
In my opinion, Valve is gonna release HL3 when the company is about to die

Dude, you just earned a sub, I like the way you cover news quickly without a 10minute inro and gameplay in the background, thanks bro!

If it wasn't for Steam, Valve could fuck off already. 101 how to piss off your fans. No HL3 is no news.
TareoO (1 year ago)
I don't know how to send you a message, me not using google+, reddit or anything i can find where you're actually active... so let's try here: I just started up Half Life 2: Episode One and in the graphics setting there is a "Virtual Reality Mode" property. It's disabled for me, but I don't have VR headset to test if it is enabled once the pc detects it..
GSgiraffes (1 year ago)
Odd that they've been using Unity. I guess a lot of employees are familiar with it (and maybe Source 2 is too new of an engine)
GSgiraffes (1 year ago)
Let's be real here. Valve releasing a game? Uhh no?
cfryant (1 year ago)
I don't know why I keep watching these videos. It's a constant roller coaster ride of hope and plunging disappointment. I don't mean to sound all grimdark but this has been going on way too long, I'm done being constantly disappointed. No offense to the guy who made these videos, you did an awesome job, up until this point this has been my source (no pun intended) for any HL related news. Thanks for all your hard work.
Hanro50 (1 year ago)
since many of Valve's games are based of half-life 2, maybe their porting it over to source 2 to make it much easier to port things like cs:go and tf2 the glass code could also be used by something like a new sequel or some new games valve is creating

VR is just killing the business. I'm not hyped about anything related to VR. Just disgusting. I want standard polished game. Unless they're making different versions to cater to many people. Which they should then!

Dota2 has an observable VR mode. Wouldn't this just be referring to that?

i can't beleve that valve fans think that thay still make games LOL XD

+Petko Fuchalksi You missed my point. Why would they develop a brand new next gen engine if they aren't going to do nothing with it.

NFMynster (1 year ago)
That code you found is from an .fgd file, which is used in Hammer. Basically the communication between the compiled code and hammer is in the fgd. Also, are you aware that the source 2013 base has vr modes integrated, as seen in tf2?

I think it's pretty obvious that the next Half Life, if it's ever going to be a thing, will be released for VR if Valve ever needs to boost the Vive's sales or kill Oculus. Thabks for the video!

HyperGolem (1 year ago)
My guess is that Valve will release a VR Half-Life game that is not HL3. If that succeeds, we might get HL3.
Crowbar (1 year ago)
+Артемий Бондаренко they will release it when its ready.
・面倒臭い (1 year ago)
watch dogs made money eventhough it is shit. Just because it was hyped. They've been creating hype around hl3 and will release it when the hype will start to go down which is pretty much now.
Crowbar (1 year ago)
because they dont know if HL3 will make money? Okay ... just the most hyped game of all time.

Instead of intentionally leaking shit, why don't they just tell us what the fuck they're doing.

+Hydra They're not an indie game company, so they should quit acting like it. They've been doing this for a while now, and its really getting old. Most of us just want solid answers about new games coming from them.

you're wrong about the Gordon Freeman doesnt talk.  Gordon Freeman doesnt talk because you are Gordon, if you are in VR and you can talk with NPCs you are still Gordon.

But Valve aren't going to make a new half-life, they can make a ton of money by just rehashing their existing games into vr. which is what they are doing.

Always judge the work by the outcome, and the outcome is null by 2016.
Dariusz Deoniziak (1 year ago)
I never heard anybody from HL developers telling/confirm that Gordon is speachless. I think it's more game design concept, the same reason why we don't see our body or legs in game and the same reason why there are no animations for opening doors, etc. Some people call it floating camera, but today it's less technical and more art direction. There are some articles over the web about it. But in short, imagine situation that you need to press a button (modeled object on actual scene) in FPP game. Without in-game character animation it works like this: YOU press a button on keyboard/pad -> button in game works as YOU would press it (well, more or less). Now same situation when there are FPP arms animations: YOU press a button on keyboard -> character animation triggers and character press the button in game -> button in games works, but you haven't pressed it, you made only YOUR character press it, it is like adding one more part of interface into the game. Of course there are games which concentrate more on characters (Duke is a good example) and that's cool too.

Andrew Wells (1 year ago)
You know, they could be using "Speak" to simplify their intentions, like within the half life source code comments, meaning some kind of data communication between the two? Inventory trading? I'm just speculating.
Douglas Rosa (1 year ago)
Tyler, do you follow any ARG that might be happening?
Tyler Kershaw (1 year ago)
RE: the communication thing, I remember reading a while ago about them testing out using sign language in HL3, so maybe Gordon will be able to use it. I was wondering how they'd implement this with a mouse+keyboard , if it were a simple button prompt they wouldn't mention it but VR seems to be the answer to this.

Yeah valve. Make a hlvr while we csgo players got graffiti that you have to pay for it instead of importing custom graffiti and not fixing the game. Yeah that pretty gr8 Volvo.
