Originally intended to launch with the game, the delay was due to the COVID-19 outbreak. With the new Half-Life: Alyx developer commentary, players will see 147 points of interests throughout the game. The floating headsets are where you need to be. Just grab one, put it on, and you will get to experience the developers sharing more about the game design, art, animation, rendering, and audio.
Behind the curtains
Once you are done learning, just remove the virtual headset and it will return to its floating position. The Half-Life: Alyx developer commentary will come in a variety of languages. It will include French, German, Japanese, Korean, Castilian Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Russian, Polish, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese.
The recommendation is to finish the game in its entirety first before accessing the Half-Life: Alyx developer commentary. For those already into the game, you will need to start a new one to see the new additions. Valve also warned that audio levels may not be at their most optimal, as everyone has been working from home. Perhaps the lack of studio-quality recording will not be a problem though when you are learning so much more.
As part of the new update, there are other changes coming to the game. In-game localization for the Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Norwegian, Romanian, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish languages have been added. A new option is now available if you wish to make ladders more realistic as well.
