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.

Even if I'll pay for this, because it's now the only way to do it,
I just need to say : **** you ********.

You're just liars. You said that it won't exceed 10-12 dollars, you said that the free version would still be available.

I know you deserve this money for all your hard work, but you lie to the customers. So **** you. Like I'd say **** you to Stev Jobs for releasing each year a poor updated Iphone, I'll buy it but **** it anyway.

You can print my money and use it to clean your ***.
But thanks for the hard work (still).

And look, suddenly ignatiusrahardi, another convenient ******* who registered today only to defend BMS, I feel the fake account, oh great.

"Guys listen This is a Free mod if you want to support them buy it now
"How much does Black Mesa cost?

Black Mesa is a free modification; the developers will never charge you for playing mainly because they wouldn't want to make people pay to play. As long as you have Steam installed on your computer, Black Mesa will cost you nothing.

However, Valve has granted the Dev Team permission to sell Black Mesa as a retail game on Steam. They will also continue to update and support the free mod version [8]. "

A Version For Free will be up soon don't know when ATM:
"The Plan
Soon you'll see Black Mesa available on Steam for a relatively low price. But we aren't dropping all support for the free version. In fact shortly after the Steam release there will be a completely new free version of the game. We also plan to open source our maps and some game assets to the modding community"

repost this from some guy in steam

if you dont, you have to wait again for the free full version

I don't know about you guys, but I have no problem paying in order to play a 10+ hours high quality game with a multiplayer mode included.

This game started out as a mod. So what?

Ever heard of Counter Strike? Day of Defeat? Garry's Mod? Killing Floor? Insurgency? Project Reality?... list goes on and on.

This is an early access release, meaning it's not a final release.
This is the time to show your support to the devs for 10 years of work they put in recreating this game classic.

I think it's worth it.

The problem is you could play the 90% of the mod for free and now you need pay for xen leves(one hour of game) and MP with only deathmach mode.

I can't deny that this news really disappoints me. Goes back to the old adage: don't make promises you [don't intend] to keep. If they want to stem the backlash over their breach of their own promises, they could have at least made a comprehensive list of what bonuses people actually get rather than just say "enhancements". That could mean anything, really.

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…
