Look up in the sky. What do you see? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's another Half-Life Alyx mod! Bad jokes aside, Half-Life: Alyx - Levitation is a new campaign mod that adds 3-4 hours of gameplay. It also offers new voicelines, new character animations, and eight levels that should challenge the average player.

The mod's storyline starts right after the ending of Half-Life: Alyx, so if you wanted some sort of resolution to the overall Alyx plot, this Half-Life: Alyx mod might give you some kind of closure. Basically, after meeting G-man, Alyx returns to City 17 and teams up with Russell once more. During Alyx's absence, a new building that levitates has appeared in the Sector X region. Barry and Maya, two key members of the resistance, tried to infiltrate and investigate the Sector, but haven't been heard from in some time after they discovered a "sinister project". As Alyx, you must save your friends and possibly the entire resistance as well.

Half-Life: Alyx - Levitation isn't the only mod to recently launch for the game. We've had a wave-based mod created by professionals, and a mod that crossed over with BioShock for some reason. Both mods are fairly different to Levitation, so if you have completed these two mods and are hankering for more, Levitation just might fit the bill. It's also been in development for two years, so it should be pretty polished, but to know for sure you'll have to download it and try it.

If you're interested, downloading and installing Levitation is simple: just click the "subscribe to all" button here (you will, of course, need to own Half-Life: Alyx). It's on the Steam Workshop, so it'll install and upgrade without you having to do anything else besides initially subscribing to it.
