Half-Life: Alyx is the long-awaited next game in the venerable Half-Life series. If you already have Steam installed, then all you need to do is to click on their respective links. Actually, it's a pretty ingenious strategy not only to build up hype for Half-Life: Alyx but also to make sure everyone will be on the same page with that game launches. As of press time, this offer appears to be a temporary unlock of the games until the VR-only adventure game Half-Life Alyx launches in roughly two months; their free availability will likely expire after HL:A launches. Given how crowded the spring release bracket is, Valve needed something to remind us that Alyx was coming, and it succeeded.

You may be wondering why Valve is being so generous, even if only for a limited amount of time.

Thing is, as PC Gamer notes, there isn't a Half-Life Collection available on Steam - but there is a Half-Life Complete offering.

Chemical blast in Catalonia kills one and injures six
The coastal city of Tarragona, with its 800,000 residents, is located some 115 kilometers (71 miles) southwest of Barcelona. Interior department chief Miquel Buch tweeted that the fire was not toxic but he advised residents to remain inside.

The Half-Life franchise is one of Valve's biggest contributions to the gaming industry next to Steam.

Half-Life: Alyx is set before the events of Half-Life 2 and shares some of the same characters and background story, so Valve says playing or revisiting the old games is the best way to get ready for the new one. That said, you'll still have slightly over a month to go through them at the very least.

In case essentially renting the entire Half-Life franchise isn't enough, though, you can buy them in the Half-Life Complete bundle, which is now 40% off. Primarily to drum up interest for Half-Life: Alyx - its new VR game set before the events of Half-Life 2 and both Episodes.
