Operation: Black Mesa is a total Source remake of Half Life: Opposing Force. Using the Source engine, the developers plan to recreate the Black Mesa research Facility as it was seen by Corporal Adrian Shephard of the H.E.C.U. Half-life: Opposing Force is still an amazing game, although it's not nearly as amazing as it was when it was released.

It's been a long time since you last heard from us, but now its time for another Media Release featuring four maps and concept art!

Posted by on

Hello everyone and welcome to another OpBM media release!

It's been a long time since we updated the community with media but we've been hard at work and are ready to show some more!

Since last time around, several new members have joined the development team. I'm pleased to announce that our mapping team is now almost full with one final spot pending. Our cadre of talented mappers have been hard at work to recreate the enviroments of Black Mesa in the Orange box engine and we've got no less than four chapters to show.

Welcome to Black Mesa


Missing In Action





Foxtrot Uniform


We also recently had several excellent modelling applicants who are now striving to fill the mod with items like the new combat knife and the desert eagle pistol, as well as another addition to our team of concept artists who never cease to amaze with their art.

Concept Art - Zombies


Concept art - Enviroment



Then what positions does that leave? We are still in need of a texture artist or two to work on enviromental textures and prop skinning, an animator and a coder.

Wrapping this article up we'd like to point out that even if we don't post updates every second week we're not dead, far from it. We are all hard at work and will continue to do so till this thing is done!

Wow, adding a Desert Eagle.
Really, no game is complete without this weapon. *yawn*

I'm so glad Black Mesa won't go without the oh-so-very-obvious rendition of yet another boring lame Desert Eagle. You guys must really be excited too. A Desert Eagle. My God..

Maybe because BMS is a remake of Half life, which had a revolver while Operation Black Mesa is a remake of Opposing Force which had a desert eagle instead?

Oh, ****. Nice.

Beautiful zombie concepts. Great looking maps. Really looking forward to seing in-game screens of the labs. Especially that teleporting center.

But hey, in the third screen, that green blob looks really bad. As if it's rendered in GoldSrc, seriously. Can't you make it apear more fluid-like... ?

It´s just a concept and would you be so kind and give us any suggestions what exactly you don´t like ?
It´s nice that you are saying you don´t like it, but it´s not helpful in any way, because we have no clue what´s wrong ;)

Wow man.. Read the summary. rofl

Black mesa source = Half-Life
Operation black mesa = Opposing Force

Two different stories, in the same facility.
If you haven't heard of Opposing Force or Blue shift, then this mod isn't for you.
