As promised, the Black Mesa team is proud to present "Stage 2," the final stage of our media release. This time around, you'll see some new and updated media shots in many areas. In response to community critiques, we've updated the Glock and Mp5 weapons, the outdoor area at the start of Residue Processing, and the Gargantua render. We also have lots of new material to give you, including a high poly model of one of our grunt variations, more shots of Blast Pit, Anomalous Materials, Lambda Core, and an animation of our Houndeye. Several updates to the site have also taken place, courtesy of our new dedicated web designer, Brett Alton.

The Black Mesa team has made the decision not to release any ingame videos for "Stage 2." We are going to save this footage for a much more opportune time, to be revealed in the coming months. You'll thank us for it later, we promise!

here's a taste of our new media, as always, catch it ALL at !

Residue Processing 04Lambda Core 09

Enjoy the new media, and thank you for your support of Black Mesa!

Wonderful stuff as always :D though, the maps still look a little bit bland. Some cool lighting effects would help.

Add some DIRT to those map textures! :p looks great though but I reckon it could do with a little more dirt cause right now it looks too clean. The level design is some of the best and the models are brilliant. Probably the only single player mod i've ever looked forward to. :D

Looks amazing!!!
The houndeye in the video looks too cute, i don't know how will i shoot something that cute.
Glock now looks better. But I still hate to see that sight on the MP5, can u make one more model without it plz?
Maps look great, just add a bit more dirt and dust as mikewood said. Also i love how you keep the original feel, and don't remake the whole map, so theres no way you can tell on which part of HL1 is this map from.

Hello, Black Mesa mod Team! :D
First of all, congatulations on entering the Phase 2 of voting. Pff, no doubt you would enter it he-he.
Nice Release, but to be honest, I was waiting for more. More stunning. Nah, I like Garg, houndeye animation video, those Lamba Core shots remind me about SiN: Episodes (it's a praise ;) ) and the Credits theme is awesome... But Anomalous Materials shots are rather poor, and I don't understand, why do you keep showing high-poly renders. Yup, there nice, teasing, etc... But it would be rather disappointing to see a worse-detailed model in game.
All the same, it was a nice month! I was very impressed as a further player :) Can't wait for the first gameplay video.
