The wait was just long enough for all kinds of crazy bets to be made, but time to cash those in, because the Black Mesa Trailer is good to go and up for viewing! You can download the high resolution version straight off of Monkey-Junkie's website and or stream it right here on ModDB. We hope this gives you a small taste of what the game will be like, and we hope it was worth the extra wait!

We also forgot to include some great Power Up shots by Kim Dahlgren, so be sure and check those out on our media page! This officially concludes our media release, but not future updates! And as stated in the trailer, the days this mod stays in development are truly numbered. Hang tight, because at long last, it is coming.

The day this comes out, I pick up a 40 bag, yes, a 40 bag if some of you know what that is

And stay home for 2 days an play it straight, take my sweet *** time and look at all the details an everything

Then move on to Half-life 2, then Episode 1 then Episode 2

Just to get the whole half-life experiance

I must say that this looks awesome, and as a hardcore Half-Life fan, I cannot wait. However, just like this trailer, I encourage you to not rush it. I know that for me personally, I would rather wait a couple more months and have this live up to its potential, than have it released too early and be only a mediocre game.

again, I'm not used to the way valve games work, I would need to buy Half Life 2 Orange Box to play it, right?

Nope, as long as you have one source game that you paid for you should be able to play it.

Here's a list of Source games that includes the Source SDK base (which is what you need in order to run Source mods).

Cheapest option being Half-life 2 Deathmatch for $5

MrDev Dec 1 2008 replied:

And an even cheaper option for Nvidia Graphics card owners is this promo, old but still valid Valves' Nvidia Hardwarepromo maybe some one has the ATi link still sitting around?

Just tested this myself to confirm that it works on its own and with mods. Even if your machine isn't nvidia powered I'm sure you can create an account and register on a friends computer :P

OkeiDo Dec 1 2008 replied:

The free HL2DM versions you get from Nvidia and ATI offers does not include the Source SDK base which is what they need to play mods. So the cheapest way for mod playing is $5.

So, I could pick up Left 4 Dead and be able to play the Half Life Orange Box Mods? Cool.

Actually I tested this out by making a new steam account with nothing on it but the ATI offer, and it let me use source sdk.

I can never thank the guys, both past and present, on the Black Mesa Source team for their work. I will sit here patiently waiting because I am so happy to see what has come from waiting I can stand to wait some more.

Thanks guys!

My god. I knew this mod would be one of quality, but this is just insane.
Rare is it that you see this kind of dedication in a single player mod. I hope this works as a demonstration of your teams talents, and helps you get into the industry.
