We're freaking out over here! It is so exciting to share this news with you!

  • You can now Download the Black Mesa Soundtrack, courtesy of our very own Joel Nielsen, at the very generous price of whatever you want! Enjoy and share!
  • In the near future you'll see our Website, Wiki and Forums all taken down temporarily for renovations.
  • On September 14th you will see the first release of Black Mesa! This will include our re-envisioning of Half-Life all the way up to Lambda Core. We believe this is a great way to provide a complete-feeling 8-10 hour experience with a solid ending, make our fans happy and help us make the best overall game possible.

We are still working hard on Xen and BMDM, but instead of making you wait we are giving you Black Mesa as soon as it's ready! We're doing our best to help bring the immense vision of this project into reality, and we are very excited for what the future brings!

High-Fives Yo,
Carlos Montero - Project Leader

Is Xen going to take a long time? I find it strange you would go this long, then release it unfinished.

It's strange you would want to delay the release even longer than it has been. The game is up to Lamba Core is finished, and bug fixed and polished up the wazoo and you want us all to wait longer before playing the game after already waiting 7 years... I have no problem waiting for BMDM, that was expected. Xen on the other hand, I can see some people being sad about having to wait for it, especially because its something they have shown zero of because they wanted it to be surprise... but also I expect because its the hardest to modernize because it was the weakest part of HL for many. Showing it off unfinished would attract to much negative vibes. I'm fine with playing BM while we wait for Xen.

Same, a torrent would be convenient, probably someone with a large server and **** loads of trackers to make this a torrent.

I cannot wait! I hated the Xen levels anyway. I finished the game the first time but every playthrough after that I stopped right before Xen.

Thanks for all of your hard work!!!

I hope Valve screws the Steam Greenlight, and rams this mod right into Steam, approved, no questions asked.

The devs have done an absolutely great job of remaking Half-Life and I think it will take me a few days to get past Anomalous Materials, as I will be that obsessed in the detail of every last bit of the level.

Good show!

After tracking this like forever, this is just awsome news. But I am going to restrain myself and wait for the full version to undergo the experience, after all this time, I think I am capable of that :D! Nice Jobs guys!

I'm glad to wait and be able to be patient for five years for this moment that we all had been waiting for. I like their perseverance and commitment to work on the mod since 2005! I'm happy to be a part of the community. It has been a long time! :)

Does nobody else think that this is going to break the internet...? I doubt that any of the download servers will stay up for long.

Ah its a shame Xen isnt already included i was most exited about those parts of the game because half life 2 dont has these trippy alien maps i liked in hl1,but its a very good replay value to replay it another 20 times :p
