The rumours of Valve VR Headset and the launch Half-Life 3 are probably true

According to a report, Half-Life 3 is releasing and it will come together with “Knuckles” controllers and brand new VR headset from Valve. Images of a new headset leaked on Imgur points at the probability of a recent headset made by Valve. The first model of the headset released carry Valve’s logo. The prevailing HTC Vive VR headsets are due to the alliance between Valve and HTC. In case the reports are correct, Valve will launch its hardware in the market. Valve VR headset has Steam VR sensors, a double camera system, and headphones as shown in the leaked images. If the images are considered to be true, the current headset will have a superior view than the Vive headset from HTC. The sources of website UploadVR have assured that 135º field of view is offered by the new headset.

As per the reports, for the new headset, Valve is aiming more to escalate the field of view. To create a VR headset, developers put their efforts on specific elements so that our mind trusts the things that it visualises in the virtual world. In order to develop the feel of “presence” in the non-physically existing world, refresh rate, frame rate and high resolution should be blended in a proper way so that your mind is tricked into believing the images you perceive through the lens. Users will get connected to the virtual space with a superior field of view, thus, making Valve focus more on this specific feature than angular resolution.

There are sources which claim that Valve is still working on this game. This necessarily does not mean that Half-Life 3 will be the forthcoming game, as it can be anything, from a basic VR model of the past released games to an entirely a new version from Valve.

In the year 1998, the real Half-Life game was launched. This revolved around a physicist, Gordon Freeman, who sets out to live and fix the circumstances when the facility is invaded by aliens. Later, Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2 Episodes are the two more games that were released by Valve. An episodic series was experienced in the latter. In 2006 and 2007, the first and the second episode came out respectively. Since these releases, people are waiting for part 3 as Valve declared and called off several games.

Half-Life 3’s details are still under wraps. In the previous year, Valve declared on developing shipping games, but it has not launched any game for a few years and fans have almost lost their hope for any good games from Valve.

Artifact is another game that is meant to be launched in 2018, but in case of Half-Life series, no news has been shared by the studio. Gabe Newell, the founder of Valve, stated that the studio is creating new games during Reddit’s ask-me-anything forum. His statements keep the fans’ hopes alive, they still feel that Half-Life 3 will be a reality someday.
