Playing Half-Life Alyx Without VR, Explained

You can play Half-Life Alyx without VR by downloading the NoVR mod from GB_2 Development Team. But, of course, you must purchase the game on Steam before installing the new content.

NoVR mod allows users to play the campaign from start to finish and earn the same Steam achievements you would get from the original version. Yet, nine trophies are excluded from this pack, such as Dead Giveaway, Zombie with a Shotgun, and Combine Harvester. Players can expect these achievements in future installments as GB_2 Development Team implements more updates.

The latest Update 6 exhibits a wide variety of new content to further the experience of Half-Life Alyx, specifically with the enhancement of the handy Gravity Gloves. You can also increase a weapon’s performance with three upgrades per tool, along with the addition of smooth movement speed and environmental interactions.

If you have other mods downloaded onto Half-Life Alyx, the team is working on the support of the most popular add-ons. Nonetheless, players can still encounter bugs or issues with this version, so it’s recommended to check on the mod’s page frequently to install any recent updates.
