Half-life: Alyx System Requirements

To run the title on PC, you’ll need the following specifications.


  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Core i5-7500 / Ryzen 5 1600
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GTX 1060 / RX 580 – 6GB VRAM

The game is fairly demanding and if you plan to play it at higher resolutions and frame-rate you’ll need a beefy system for sure.


You can get it on Steam and you will need a support VR headset to play it.

For non-VR users, Valve has commented that they’re sure that some form of the non-VR mod will eventually come out.

We’re excited to see what Valve has in store for non-VR users, and for VR in general.


The game currently has a Metacritic score of 92, and an open critic score of 92 as well.

Despite being a VR only title, the game saw a peak player count of 42k, and it seems like a success.

Valve has also commented that the direction they take when it comes to future titles will depend on how well Alyx does.
