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.

If you put it on sale this summer I'll buy it.

Don't feel like a whopping 20$ is justified for such an outdated engine like the Source engine.

Especially when I see complete indie games with higher graphic fidelity going for a measly 10$.

Is higher graphic really important?

The Source engine isn't outdated at all... It gets regularly updated even today... :)

Show me at least one Source game running on DX11. By running i mean utilizing dx 11 not DX 9 libires and not being ported to Steam platform by another company with they own or modified engine of different source than Vavle.

I upgraded my PC to expirince eye candy, fluid grpahics and gamplay.

Just see the game, when used correctly Source is NOT outdated.

The early access version is much better than the free version, less bugs less lag and it's alot smoother new animations better sound new scenes. I laugh at the people that are crying about the mod not being free anymore. $21.00 is hardly expensive in this day and age most games are $60.00 and up and this game is defintley worth more than that. Plus the mod will receive frequent updates on top that making it worth buying.

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.

Chow!

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.

Due to engine issues, really?if you want to waste your money fine but im not going to pay 20 $ for a "game" that i have played the old one which costs less than 8 $ and this one from moddb

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.

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…
