The latest Half-Life: Alyx patch answers a big player request.

Half-Life: Alyx has received a small, but important new update. The patch adds the ability to continuously turn, which allows turning in-game to mimic real-life movement.

The game’s Quick Turn option has been renamed to Snap Turn, which should better explain what each of them do. Continuous turn, for its part, comes with options to customise turning speed. The patch also allows players to remove controller turning through a new toggle.

Outside of those, there are a few other bug fixes. You can see everything in the patch notes below:

  • Added Continuous Turn, and associated turning speed options.
  • Renamed Quick turn to Snap Turn to make its functionality clearer.
  • Added option to disable controller turning.
  • Improved hand-over-mouth pose usability for Windows MR controllers.
  • Improved the resolution of impact decals on enemies.
  • Improved automatic detection of default Quality settings for some machine configurations.
  • Fixed an issue where some sounds didn’t play as intended.
  • Fixed an issue where the main menu could become less responsive if you had many save games.
  • Fixed several crashes.
