Every Secret is Protected by a Lie

Resurgence: The Union goes back to Black Mesa Research Facility to dig into the yet untold tale of one of the survivors during the feral day when Resonance Cascade incident occured. Darryl Brooks - a Security Force officer stranded alone in the now hostile environment is forced to decide whether to save his own life or follow the rules of his initial job and save the others.

Setting

In The Union you will experience the disaster from the perspective of Darryl Brooks - a Security Officer who is now caught in between right and wrong, trying to escape from the impending doom. Serving as a demo for the main game formula, The Union provides you with the reduced Resurgence features like Weapon Lockers, Original set of Characters, it's own Storyline and more!


Key Features

» Unique short story
» Original Characters
» Original Soundtrack
» Weapon Lockers
» Set in Black Mesa
» New Shaders



Requirements

Mouse, keyboard, monitor and semi-decent computer. And Steam. That's all.



Backstory of the project

The Union acts as spinoff and a demo of the main game at the same time - it will give you an idea of how the Resurgence will look like while presenting it's own short story instead of using the main game levels. Development of this little project is basically like roasting two chickens on one stick - you get to visit the universe sooner than expected and we are able to produce some of the main game assets on the way.

Hello, long time no hear. We have promised an update in the first quarter of 2019 and even though we are 1 day late, we think it was worth the wait. Let's not waste anymore time and dive into today's BEEFY update!

As you may know, we have had some struggles with development in the past but that is not the case anymore. We are happy to announce that we have been approached by Epic Games in order to bring the best out of Resurgence. Because of that we are excited to announce our most original and unique idea so far!


Yes, that's right! I bet you didn't see THAT one coming did you? We know our fans will be extremly happy about this development and since according to our long time friends at EA singleplayer games are becoming obsolete, we have decided to scrap the entire boring campaign in favor of this revolutionary gamemode. Now, you're thinking "but how is that even gonna work?" Well, let me tell you!


Resurgence Battle Royale is going to drop you on the absolute BIGGEST map in the history of anything you have ever heard of. Utilizing the latest version of Source Engine, our map stretches to whopping 250sq meters (whoa!) Don't worry, it won't make your computers explode as it is specifically designed and optimized for the latest generation Intel integrated video cards (another sponsor!)
The game will drop you and another 126 players into this map, full of danger and excitement you have never even dreamed of. Need a gun to kill your enemies with? Easy, just climb up a tree and use your Loot Crate key in order to access exciting loot (keys will be sold as microtransaction). Need a ride? Easy, just jump on a tricycle bike and run over your enemies with it. Need friends to play with? Don't worry, our Battle Royale is the first ever to exclusivly pitch you against a variety of bots! You don't need those filthy humans to ruins your experience, am I right?


On top of that, we are going to grace you with unbeliveably extensive customization options. Now you can be whoever you always wanted to be! So good! You can customize the look of individual bots aswell, available only if you pre-prepurchase our Ultimate Deluxe Premium Elite Uber Edition, available now for only $299.99! If you are going to place your order within next 15 minutes, we are going to add a stainless steel pan FOR FREE!


Resurgence Battle Royale will premiere on June 31st exclusively on Epic Games Store. If you want to get most of the game, we encourage you to preorder our Ultimate Deluxe Premium Elite Uber Edition, which will provide you with access to 43 DLC packs aswell as 5 Resurcoins (our real money ingame currency which you can buy cosmetic items with). Thank you for your attention and we hope to see you in the battle (or at least the bots do)

In all seriousness now, our team has expanded a bit since the last blog post (we not a skeleton crew anymore, now we're just a bit bigger than a skeleton crew!) and we are happy to report that the development is going fairly well. We do not have any major announcements as of right now, and we know that we teased a very big update for over a year now... we were hoping to make it happen in the first half of this year but it might be pushed back a little bit as we are still working on some things which require polishing before we can share it with you. One word of clarification we want to make though: the big update that is coming is NOT a premiere of the game. Think of it more as a re-reveal where we are going to give you some proper details about the final iteration of Resurgence which we are working on since 2017, aswell as some new media. One thing I can say for sure: even tho I do not like hyping things up or being overly confident, I think that it is safe to say the this update might be a solid contender for the biggest pre-release community update in the history of Half-Life modding (or maybe even game modding in general, who knows?)
We are going to let you know ahead of time when we will be planning to release this update, but for now thanks for sticking around and have a nice day!

I've added [OUTDATED] tag to all media content which is does not represent the current version of the game. Hope it helps avoid any further confusion.

Will we see the combine home-world in this?

Resurgence: The Union is set exclusively during the Black Mesa Incident, in pre-Combine era.

Also, it is worth mentioning that Combine Overworld is extremely hostile to human life and since we are not messing too much with the established canon, I think it's safe to assume that the answer to your question is sadly no.

Did you ever look at a mod called Operation Lambda?

It sounds familiar but I do not remember it to be honest.

Back in 2010 - 2015, there was a mod called Operation lambda, it look really interesting. It was about a Black Mesa employee who vanished in the black mesa incident, he was thrown of into the combine home-world and he had to escape. it looked really good, but the creator cancelled it. It would be really cool if it was revived by other developers. its page is still open on moddb: Moddb.com.

wouldn't that require all the assets they made over the years? that's the only reason Opposing Force 2 had any chance of making a resurgence.
