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.

Could you guy maybe provide a standalone demo of Black Mesa? Sort of like the Uplink demo for HL1? I want to be sure my relatively ancient PC can run Black Mesa before buying it. I remember playing the free version back in 2014, but things could have changed.

Well, it is early access, and will be updated in the future with Xen for free as long as you got the retail version.

There are still perks for buying it now like the new models, and of course the new and amazing multiplayer everyone has been hyped for.

But the free version won't be as advance and as cool looking as the retail and to my knowledge the free version won't EVER include Xen unless Black Mesa devs are nice enough to still let part of the game be free.

I would still but it if I were you, the devs deserve the money. They gave us more then half the game already for free and they want it for cheap, but you can buy it or not your choice.

That's why it's still free I think.
