Operation Black Mesa is a total remake of Half-Life: Opposing Force. Utilizing the Source engine, Tripmine Studios plans to recreate the Black Mesa Research Facility from the ground up, as seen by the protagonist, Adrian Shephard.


Planned Features
• As a total conversion mod, Operation Black Mesa aims to be composed custom content entirely.
• All original maps re-created and re-envisioned for better realism and gameplay.
• Some maps are enlarged / extended to create a more lengthy and immersive experience.
• Improved AI, making enemies smarter and combat more dynamic.
• More enemy encounters to keep the action fresh.
• Scripted scenes with all the original Opposing Force characters to help bring the story to life.
• Textures and models pushing the limits of the Source engine, to bring you as much artistic detail as possible.
• New voice acting, new sound assets and a new soundtrack.
• Multiplayer that will bring back the classic gameplay, but also many new features, maps and game modes!
• Guard Duty, a remake of Half-Life: Blue shift is also being developed as DLC for Operation: Black Mesa.

Greetings!I hope you all had a great start to 2022. We sure did! And even if most of us had spent our holiday time with families and close friends, we haven´t stopped working hard on Operation: Black Mesa and Guard Duty.


As always, it was hell of a ride for us at Tripmine Studios. This year was once again very important in regards to the progress. Not only that we are pumping out assets, keeping on assembling levels, but we have also managed to bring a lot of important new features to the Source engine, such as PBR rendering. Thanks to enormous efforts from our programming team, Source Engine looks better than ever.

And just right for Christmas, we have launched our Steam Store page, which was a climax of our traditional "Tripmas event". What are you waiting for? Head over there, and do not forget to add us to your wishlist! The event itself brought you some extra media from our game and even more was unleashed with the Steam store launch.


If you missed the Tripmas event, you can still go scroll through our Twitter or Facebook to find out all the goodies. And do not forget to join our Discord as well.

Will this ever be released, I was 25 when I first learnt of this remake, I am now 40! at this point I have more faith in Half-Life 2 episode 3 coming out first. But seriously great work you are doing.

They're taking their time to work on OBM, as I far know they won't state a release at the moment but I'm pretty sure it will reach of the light someday.

Well obviously they are still using the Source Engine with the CSGO branch.
