Welcome back Mr. Freeman, Black mesa is now available on Early Access, Black Mesa is what we had all hoped half life source would have been, a total re invisoning of the Classic brought up to date with higher definition models, textures and more.

Crowbar collective state. “Making a game with the scope and scale of Black Mesa is a massive undertaking. Back in 2012 we made the decision to release what we had completed up to that point, and were blown away by the community’s response, feedback, and improvements to our work. We want to keep that relationship alive and well by using Early Access as a tool for allowing our community to participate in the final phase of Black Mesa’s development.

In addition, our ambitions go beyond the original Xen chapters found in Half-Life. We have a standard of quality that we have to achieve. Early Access allows us to commit resources to bring you the remaining chapters with the quality that you expect.”

"We currently have the first ~85% of our single player campaign completed. For the last 15% we want to not only recreate it, but improve upon it to make it an enjoyable and memorable experience. We feel it will take us considerable time to get the last 15% up to our standards, and putting a time estimate on it would be a total guess.”

This EA release sees you playing over 10 hours of single player campaign. Multiplayer deathmatch and team deathmatch with 6 completely re-imagined Half-Life 1 maps on the Source Engine.

When I compare this game to Renegade-X, Starcraft Mass Recall and the upcoming Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth, they have more quality advantages over this one overall and even those are free to play and download. I am not paying a single cent for this indie game even when Xen is released despite under the Source Engine 2013 and limited multiplayer. Probably by then when this game is finished the graphics will be outdated compared to the more developed Unreal Engine 3 and 4 games, free or not.

I am already utterly disappointed with the developers using Valve's permission to sell the remake even when it's not worth anything at all.

What is the difference between this mod and the one on Steam?
Why should I spend 19.99$?
Are both the same?

this mod is now officially dead.

The steam version will include mutiplayer, lastest updates and xen.

I personally fell like this is a game, because of all the original content the devs made to it.

If some modder that made his mod free come and say "**** you, they reused assets!" Also remember that The Stanley Parable ALSO used some assets, but still is a game and an awesome one. Why all this rage? Honestly they have spent 8 years on this and I wouldn't mind paying 20$ since this is a great title and almost everyone on the america is full of money.

(The rest of the comment wasn't for you, but mostly to the people who say this sucks, sorry any disturbance).

The mods not dead, they already said they are going to port over fixes and other things from the steam release to the mod when they get the time to.
