41 comments by TKAzA on May 9th, 2015

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.

Im guessing this might be false, but if this is not, then **** the BM team, their mod and all sure, but this is an big "**** you, suck my **** and buy my game" to the fans.

Well it was nice knowing you Black Mesa, I hope EA and Valve Hire you to become their salves.

No, it's not fake, it's very real.

The mod version won't have Xen due to engine issues. Also, do you want to play Xen or not? Do you really want to see the team releasing it for the game version and then wait another couple of years just for the sake of having it for free? Damned logic. If you don't want to pay 20$, then wait for the sales and get it much cheaper.

The team deserve to earn money for what it's now a GAME, not a MOD anymore. Stop with this childish attitude, it ain't going to help anyone.

Well, I guess it's up to everyone to decide what to do with the money, but I'd (and will) gladly support a team who recreated a game from 0 and worked on it for over 10 years (the development started in 2004-2005 I believe).

So yeah, it's certainly worth if you ask me (and other fans). There are many advantages to buy the actual game anyway, such as continuous support, Steam Workshop, Trading Cards, Multiplayer, and much more.

It's not free, they've previously said the paid version will be different to the free version.

thats what i said, but they have a torrent up for the steam version, (because it has the slightly better options and graphics) and really think it's stupid when there is a free one!

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…
