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.

The visuals in this mod look the best from any mod ive seen for any game and its not even completed yet. I cant comment on gameplay yet since there is sadly no demo :(. But keep up this progress guys, i cant wait to play this. I guess ill be playing CS:S and DoD:S in the meantime :D.

Hey all, to answer a few questions

We won't be releasing a public beta version of the modification, we only get one shot to shine on release, so we'll spend a while getting everything wrapped up for a public release after interal alphas/beta stages are complete.

We are looking over voice dialogue requirements at the minute, if we need extra lines recorded we'll issue a public statement

There is a nice range in the music on our original soundtrack, Plink our sound artist is playing around with different genre's and types of music to fit the theme.

Weapons will behave just like in the original, we're keep them all the same, ammo counts, reload times, you name it. The models, textures, animations and sounds will be remade though to modern say standards

Why don't you guys hire people to do some of the voices for you.
As we all know, Black Mesa has alot of staff and it would soud strange them all sounding the same like in HL1.

Just a suggestion of course. Anyone agree?

It would suffice playing the uplink demo over and over again for about a year... So any news on that?

This mod is amazing! Feels like i'm playing a Valve's game, not a modification.
Now i understand what people felt like in 1998.

At first i made a really nice review to this game mod. But then i advanced further in the game and i got really pissed off... Yeah its pretty and scenic , yeah most of the voice acting is great and the music is fantastic but there is a huge annoying gash that just makes the game shit! AI: WHAT BASICALLY MAKES THE GAME SHIT AI: SHIIIT Soldiers...Im fine with other critters plaing running to eat you but soldiers(well the alien soldiers suck in this department as well). Anyway so where were we? oh…
