GoldenEye: Source is a total conversion modification of Half-Life 2. It is a fan made recreation, released for free, with only one goal in mind; to bring the memories and experiences from the original GoldenEye64 back to life using Source Technology. We want you to look at this mod and remember the first best multiplayer first-person shooter ever made. We are doing our best to bring in the opinions of the community to create a game that everyone is going to enjoy. But, we are not here to recreate the game exactly how it was in GE64, a lot of things have changed since they first designed that game, mainly in technology and gamers experiences. We are here to take the game even further but at the same time provide a lot of those fun elements that hardcore GE64 fans will enjoy. We've got experienced team members all across the board, from professional level, to amateurs looking to make it into the business working hard to make this dream a reality.

GE:S v4.2 Release Date

July 20th
*Delayed*



Coming in at #4 (scroll down the link to see us) is none other than GoldenEye: Source, being the only full conversion modification to be listed in the fan art article by website Cracked.com as being a bettering through fan-art of the original. Although that was never our real goal, we just wanted to give the world and modding community at large a worthy update and continuing of GoldenEye fun and fanaticism!

Check out the article and like our relevant links on Facebook regarding the article, and feel free to keep it buzzing about with any means you choose! Also, we have noted they linked to our 9 screen gameplay video from 4.1. The comments are showing new interest from Youtube users and a fair bump in views! Nice news for everyone involved in our community and Enzo.Matrix; our co-creator who made the video.



The goal of the objective icons is to integrate the current gameplay scenarios objective, like the Golden Gun in MWGG, directly on-screen. The objective icons are unobtrusive and constantly point to the direction of the objective when the player is not looking directly towards it. Scenarios can define custom text that is displayed above the indicator arrow to distinguish actions the player should take. Scenarios can also filter icons so that you will only see them if you are holding a particular object or are on a particular team.

Teammate Icons rendered overhead help ease players into teamplay scenarios in GoldenEye: Source. Since we are remaining true to the original game and do not use colored overlays or different skins to distinguish teammates, new players often found it difficult to tell between teams. These icons are intended to alleviate that confusion. We have also included team based voice chat icons to maintain consistency.

As we roll out these updates you will see 4.2 has seen face lifts and tweaks aplenty from Fourtecks and all of the level design team. Facility has been given an extensive revamp this release. Given both a visual and architectural face-lift. Always a beautiful map, this update really makes you feel like you're playing in a Russian chemical base. New hard chiseled lines, and a very harsh ‘cold’ feeling throughout. Followed by a couple of brand new halls and routes that alleviate choke points. Though trust us, this map is still cutthroat with it's team based and deadly edge.

Here are some screenshots of it in action:

I hope there's some servers for 4.2 this time, but the main thing is the bots for SP.
