Black Mesa will finally be available later this month
Earlier today, the official website for Black Mesa, the highly anticipated fan-developed, HD, Source powered remake of the original Half-Life launched a countdown clock, which is set to go off on September 14. When the clock reaches zero, the game will be released after seven long years in development!
Unfortunately, the mod’s initial release will not contain the final chapters in Xen or multiplayer but there’s still plenty to be excited about if you’re anxiously awaiting your chance to play though Gordon Freeman’s first outing in glorious HD. At least that’s if this leaked footage is any indication of what the final product is like:
If you think the 14th can’t arrive fast enough, the development team has made the soundtrack available for download right here, so you’ll have some music to listen to help pass the time.
So… whose excited?
Editor’s Note: A special thank you goes out to g1 JustApollo for filling me in on all of the details!
Instead of puttering around re-telling Half-Life 1, they could have put all this effort into making a fan-made conclusion: HL2 - Episode 3
yeah but unfortunately with this developer, it feels more like 'something's better than nothing'.
I can't wait to experience this, there's only two things that I am a little disappointed in, first, some of the swearing bothers me, secondly its too bad the Xen chapters aren't included. Outside of that, this looks great, and I like most of the dialogue too. As for the linked video that shares a bunch of the story and history of the Half-Life/Portal World, that really gives me a new perspective and sounds like someone has no life and really figured out a lot about the whole story, so I can enjoy learning about it without the pain of figuring it out for myself.
Is it just me or do the voices for the soliders taking to each other sound a bit odd?
I was worried they gave up on the project, glad they didn't!
As DLC, I mean.
Well, Cold Stream, the L4D 2 map that was created by fans has just recently seen a LIVE release. I really don't expect this to reach 360, but it's not impossible.
...true enough, id do want to go swimming... GAH!! *Flails along with him*
Actually, with more Half Life, they'll keep pining for even more Half Life
I really wish they'd just make a fist and say "this is how it's going to be"
BUT I WANT TO GO SWIMMING! *FLAILS*
I can imagine valve saying "finally! something that'll shut them up for a while"
Great to finally have it.
Great to finally have it.
If your PC can run Half Life 2 just fine, then I think BM:S should run just fine. :)
If you actually seen Half Life Source, you'd know this mod had improved more than just water effects.
Same here. Whatever happened to "when it's done"? Still, I am thankful they are going to release the mod
Ha. That voice of the second soldier. Duke Nukem impression.
No half life source is the worst looking source game that exists. Followed by CS:S. This looks on par with the recent source games.
