Valve explained in a tweet that Half-Life: Alyx will begin pre-loading on March 20, while the game won't unlock for VR gamers until March 23 at 10AM PT / 1PM ET. This means we're only days away from its launch, with Half-Life: Alyx opening up the pre-loading flood gates the day DOOM Eternal drops on March 20.
