> Gordon Freeman fans recently got their hands on Half-Life: Alyx , the virtual reality title dedicated to the legendary Valve series.
Now, however, it is A clip of Half-Life: Episode 4 (also known as Half-Life Return to Ravenholm ), in production at Arkane Studios but appeared later deleted from Valve.

Arkane actually worked on the game in 2007, although the project was later blocked by Valve (who announced that Episode 3 – which in turn never came out – would be the official epilogue of the Half- plot. Life 2 ).
In all probability Half-Life 2: Episode 4 could therefore have been the conclusion of the story of Alyx Vance and Dog , before the release of the spin-off designed for VR.
Here are some old statements by the writer Marc Laidlaw:
We are big fans of Arkane and we wanted to think to a project to work on together. We launched ideas, built some interesting things, but in the end we decided that it didn’t make sense to pursue them at the time.
Half-Life 2: Episode 4 should have have more horror tones (in zombie style), in line with the style of the town of Ravenholm seen in Half-Life 2 .
We remember in any case that Alyx , new chapter of the Valve series designed exclusively for virtual reality, has been available for PC users since March of this year.
