Valve working on a new VR headset, Half-Life VR prequel

SC04noWatermark

Of interest is the rumor that if Valve does go to market with the leaked VR headsets, they may package the hardware with a Half-Life game.

According to UploadVR, Valve's latest project is an upcoming Half-Life game.

One shot reveals two SteamVR photodiodes inside the headset for tracking, as well as two visible cameras and integrated headphones. According to leaked images appearing on Imgur and shared by UploadVR, Valve has its own headsets in the works, apparently meant to be bundled with Valve's 'Knuckle' controllers and a Half-Life VR game.

The report suggests the resolution isn't drastically changing, with Valve's attempt instead focusing on increasing the field of view to 135-degrees. These will apparently use the latest Valve "knuckles" type of VR controller. However, a virtual reality headset would be much more complicated to manufacture in comparison.

More interestingly, the site notes that Valve is working on a Half-Life VR game, also to be part of the same bundle.


Valve has already been deep into VR thanks to its tie-up with HTC on the Vive headset, which has evolved nicely with the Vive Pro sitting at the top of the line. This difference does highlight the possibility that if Valve is developing a VR headset in-house, they are doing it without HTC's involvement.

This would be a big deal for a number of reasons, not only would Half-Life make its long awaited return but it would also be a big push for the Source 2 engine. The lenses of the device, however, seem significantly larger than what we've seen from competitors so far.

Added to this, UploadVR claims to have some inside knowledge of what we're looking at here.

Obviously, Valve-time is a real thing, so even if all of this is all legitimate information, it could still be a few years before we see any of it come to fruition.
