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.
Culminating with three years of code-base optimization, v4.1 is our first release to drop the 'beta' handle, and give fans the best GoldenEye: Source yet. 20+ servers ready for you!

Hey loyal fans and friends,
For anyone who is on the fence about downloading this game, or downloaded and not gotten in game yet, here is something to get you excited. Video by Enzo.matrix, and special thanks to Wake and the whole Beta Test crew for making this cool concept come alive! Watch it on youtube and feel free to give us some positive response!
Goldeneye source v4.1 includes ;
[Official UK server provider]
ClicknKill.com - Lee got in contact with us interested in providing some servers under an official banner. These guys have a near monopoly on great and cheap servers that host GE:S out of the UK. They are providing three servers for us. You could even rent some yourself from 35p/slot and we are glad to have them presenting our mod with quad core powered servers to experience our new release. Support them by playing in the official servers and looking into renting a server yourself, to support us!
With ClicknKill, you can easily order up a UK server with just a few clicks. Many of our community already go to them in the past year or more, for their great deals and good support for Goldeneye: Source. Hell, you and your friends can split the bill, and the fun, with v4.1 on ClicknKill server hosting!
[Official U.S Server provider]
Wakkaservers.com - Walker expressed a straight up offer of 6 servers to donate to our latest release of GoldenEye: Source. Big thanks to the guys at Wakka. Looks like they will be our Official U.S server provider for December if not beyond, and the community should see some great configurations and conditions directly from the team. We hope to show you the full range of GE:S fun, with each server to be vastly tailored over the weekend period.
These 6 servers will run a variety of modes and combination's to show off what the mod can do. Server hosts will no doubt be interested to check out what we do, and we'll be certain to make some posts in the coming days and weeks giving hints to how we setup our officials, and get the most out of the mod.
Thanks to all of those who contacted us regarding the server pre-load. Members of our support staff, such as our Beta Testers, are now actively seeking to spread the server package to various servers that are currently running Beta 4. If you don’t see some of your favorite servers in the next couple of days, they might be upgrading to v4.1!
We give thanks to these contributors who answered the call to actively support our v4.1 release, the most complete GoldenEye: Source experience yet!
Gamerscoalition.com - Mookie, a representative of GamersCoalition, has always hosted our mod and will continue with a Chicago based installment on the way for v4.1. Mookie is also a long standing and dedicated community member, not just a provider of servers.
<email@example.com> "Steve Cunningham"
Steve requested we throw him a bone with the v4.1 download, so he and his clan mates could get into some fun on release day. We are not sure which server he represents but we trust he is having some fun as we speak!
<firstname.lastname@example.org> "Devin Sinitiere"
Devin is an independent provider who hosts 'events' for popular mods, and expressed an interest in gathering some friends via online communities for the release night and continuing the trend. We love to see this type of initiative. "I plan to hold one of these invitation style events and possibly kick off the new release with a bang by having a server going for it instead of having to rely on others." Top stuff, Devin!
Of course there is also our tried and true providers whom we always fast-track our files to, and
appreciate their dedication and generosity. The clans and communities that have given you, the playing community, so much of themselves over the years. Thank you.
If you are interested seeing even more available servers hosting our mod, get in touch with any provider you know and tell them they ought to know GE:S is out there with a prime example of what modding entertainment is all about. Pass this email address along with our server download links, to make a difference to your server climate, today - Official email contact for server info. Aside from the above list, there are a few lagging behind and we ask you be patient. This is a screen showing we had players in beta 4 who simply couldn't wait, just 12 hours before release:
Spread the word across the web about this news release and that we are having another big party each night, which will see many developers involved. Head to our GE:S Group Steam Chat at 5pm U.S (east) until late.
Watch this news post throughout the day to see the possible inclusion of our video - Plus, don't forget once you've played v4.1 we'd love to get your verdict on whether we are your Mod of the Year. Head to the page to vote or just comment on our ModDB profile if you've already voted! Remind the friends you drag in-game this weekend about their opportunity to support us in the MOTY awards, too!
