19 comments by Archie_SnC on Dec 12th, 2013

We want to thank the phenomenal community of ModDB so much for helping us get this far - I am being completely sincere when I say that if it wasn't for your unparalleled support this mod simply would not exist. Getting into the top 100 mods of the year for two years running is simply unbelievable.

As the mod has grown in popularity, so too has the realisation that this mod has to be the best we can possibly make it. Expectations are running high and we are trying our absolute hardest to create the  gameplay experience you folks deserve for supporting us. It's for that reason that we don't actually have a download link to give you just yet, but we hope that this trailer will in some small way communicate our passion for this and let you forgive us for taking so long to release the mod. 

With that in mind, here we have the first ever reveal of gameplay in The Core. You guys are amazing. Please vote for us in the Mod of the Year awards if you think we deserve it and have a god-damn fantastic day.

All the best,

Mod of the Year Awards

I did this comment on your video to :-). You can just imagine the sequal using the HL 2/3 Source Engine.. "THE CORE: Ashes".. it could be a "City2" escapee/s (could make it 2player coop) who stumbles into Black Mesa somehow and needs to escape the facility before the remaining Xen Army finds you, weapons and ammo are scarce (weapon and ammo pickups stay during MP but can only be pickes up once). In this sequal the Black Mesa Facility is your sandbox, journey through the whole facility to find your way out, even use the remaining portal technology to advance greater distances, but The Core is offline, an optional objective "Restart The Core" and return full power to the facility, then run for your life. You could even bring back Shepherd as the main character and get him to say "Oh sh** not this hell hole again" when you stumble into the lost facility.

One thing we don't have is an animator. There are a lot of new models being used with their own animations but we aren't having any new animations made specifically for the mod.
