Welcome back Mr. Freeman, Black mesa is now available on Early Access, Black Mesa is what we had all hoped half life source would have been, a total re invisoning of the Classic brought up to date with higher definition models, textures and more.

Crowbar collective state. “Making a game with the scope and scale of Black Mesa is a massive undertaking. Back in 2012 we made the decision to release what we had completed up to that point, and were blown away by the community’s response, feedback, and improvements to our work. We want to keep that relationship alive and well by using Early Access as a tool for allowing our community to participate in the final phase of Black Mesa’s development.

In addition, our ambitions go beyond the original Xen chapters found in Half-Life. We have a standard of quality that we have to achieve. Early Access allows us to commit resources to bring you the remaining chapters with the quality that you expect.”

"We currently have the first ~85% of our single player campaign completed. For the last 15% we want to not only recreate it, but improve upon it to make it an enjoyable and memorable experience. We feel it will take us considerable time to get the last 15% up to our standards, and putting a time estimate on it would be a total guess.”

This EA release sees you playing over 10 hours of single player campaign. Multiplayer deathmatch and team deathmatch with 6 completely re-imagined Half-Life 1 maps on the Source Engine.

I would like to give you my feedback about this mod. The work you put into this is amazing. The architecture design is superior than the vanilla game. I loved the new features such as the ambush sequence which I didn't expect. The wait was worth it ever since it was announced back in the mid 2000s.

I also agree from what I learned about the Xen segment: while it was impressive to see what the dimension was like, it was indeed short and uninspiring. Which is why I agree that the vanilla game should have ended at the Lambda Core chapter while Xen should have been an expansion standalone, which also by the way this version of Xen is stunning!

i hope to see the Xen segment completed this year.

So far, I think we can agree that getting this mod greenlit, so it would become an actual remastered game, is far more worth the wait than actually waiting for a free mod version that limits the potential that these dev's have to fully utilize the source engine's capacity such as features, graphical modifications, gameplay, etc. I remember someone crying over paying 20 bucks for something that is "outdated", but this thing just turned stuff around and made it friggin eye candy if you ask me.

Last couple of maps is almost out peeps, let's prepare for a long awaited celebration.

The technical beta of Xen is released at this time. Switch to the public beta branch in the game's properties. Hop in for 6 maps.

If you're still waiting for the full Xen experience, then you'll need to be a little more patient.

Someone released Xen sooner (as an extension mod for Black Mesa) before the Black Mesa team will release their own: Moddb.com

Wow, thanks for the heads up. This looks amazing and one dude beat an entire team to launch. He's been clear that he can't compete with the crowbar collective so he's setting no unrealistic claims so Good on him!

i can feel your pain, for more then 7 years and i still dream to get a computer who can handle any game i want to play for the upcoming years without need to buy another one after 1 or 2 years, even HL2 MMod still play with drop frames in some locations. But it will happen one day and before Project Borealis and Boreal Alyph of course

You are exactly describing my pain also. Ever since 2012 when this mod was new I still dream of playing it with a smooth frame rate, but I keep on getting slow gameplay. Seeing people play this on youtube like it's normal just gets me down sometimes, but I hope I won't be sad for long because I believe the day will come. wish you luck man, as well as myself

This mod is amazing! Feels like i'm playing a Valve's game, not a modification.
Now i understand what people felt like in 1998.
