44 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.

Actually it looks like they are not doing anything else with the free version of Black Mesa for anyone who's wondering.

So to be sure, the free version will include Xen, but will not include the in-game improvements that come with the retail version, and it will not include multiplayer either? Can someone confirm this for me?

I don't mind Black Mesa coming to steam with a price tag, I mind it coming to steam as still an early access title. Early access games only serve to further remove video games as a work of art and establish them more as a business practice.

I can hear the arguments of people telling me that the money will motivate the developers to carry out their projects, but that only serves if the money incentive comes at the end of a completed product. Midway, it's only a safety cushion for returns with no obligation to finish (see Day-Z).

i prefer original half-life on goldsrc or half-life source, because here i feel like i play a different game which isnt part of the half-life series. the ultra hd models, graphics, effects etc looks good, but doesnt fit into half-life + it breaks the immersion. if i play this mod, it wont bring back memories back.

I know exactly how you feel. It's missing something but I can't quite put my finger on it, and it's not Xen.

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…
