Developed and remade by Cracked Computer Studios

Originally created by Valve, Gearbox Software, Ritual Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios
Originally published by Valve

Boasting the ability of re-creation with talented producers and creators, Recovered Operations will exuberate high-class, padded gameplay with instantaneous enjoyment - stemming from the delectably written dialog and scenes!

Recovered Operations is a Half-Life 2 modification that aims to recreate, reinterpret, and reimagine Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes, the Counter-Strike series' sole single-player experience. Recovered Operations is not merely a graphical update: it will incorporate many new features and elements aimed at creating a more polished, realistic, and story-driven experience than the original game. In the mod, as in the original, players will assume the roles of various elite counter-terrorist operatives, and deploy across the globe to conduct missions in a variety of countries and environments.

Following a long and tumultuous development period, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero was released in March of 2004 after suffering numerous setbacks and passing through several developers. A scrapped single-player version of the game, developed by Ritual Entertainment, was released separately as Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes. Deleted Scenes was met with mixed reviews, with many pointing out its severely dated graphics and general lack of polish. In spite of this, the game has managed to accrue a modest fanbase. As such, we feel Deleted Scenes deserves a modern update, produced to a higher standard of quality.

June 2017 Media Release

We promised to keep you updated and here we are again with another media release.
This is what's been happening:

Since we last updated you we've been hard at work composing, animating, modeling, drawing concept art and much more, some of which we'll show off in this article and some that will be shown off later in another article.

To start this off this media release we have three tracks we’d like you to listen to. These are all tracks to be featured in the mission `Recoil`.

All tracks composed by our talented composer, David M.

Last time we showed off a couple of guns, here are two more

Just look at this bad boy, the Desert Eagle Mark XIX .50AE
Capable of literally blowing your mind, and then some.

We also have an AKM model to show off, but this one was made by our animator, this is also their first model ever and we think it turned out great!

This beauty was made by our second wonderful 3D artist, Hoàng L.

The AKM made by our fabulous animator, Budai G.

Since we all like weapons in motion, here is a look at the Beretta 8000 2.0 and Desert Eagle

“Didn’t you show off the Cougar in the last article?”, you may ask. And the answer to that is yes. Yes we did. Our animator has been hard at work trying to find their style and they finally have found their own unique style of animating, and this is the Cougar and Desert Eagle in action with this new style applied.

Done by our fabulous animator, Budai G.

Now over to some concept art, these are some of the key ST6 operatives

From Top to Bottom: Commander, Delta Sniper, “Operative” w/ outfit concept.

These concept art pieces have been put together by our (yet again) wonderful 2D artist, Hoang L.

Recovered Operations: ST6 Commander

What next...?

And that concludes the media release article, and as promised we'll continue putting effort into Recovered Operations. Make sure to keep checking in as we will stay in touch with the community through our forums, as well as posting updates on ModDB.
