Half Life: Black Mesa Source Mod Countdown Starts

It’s like everything related to Half-Life or Gordon Freeman is destined to see incredibly long development with little to no news. One such thing is the Half-Life Black Mesa project.

A fan remake of Valve’s original 1998 Half-Life using the Source Engine, Black Mesa promises a fully reconstructed Half-Life universe built from the ground up with new models, maps, soundtrack, voice acting, and textures.

The remake will include the original game’s protagonists, Gordon Freeman, as well as the original cast of characters and environments. The mod project was launched in 2004 following fan disappointment over Valve’s official Half-Life remake, Half-Life: Source. And finally we have news of it’s release.

A counter appeared on the Black Mesa Source webpage, counting down to September 14, with the words “They’re waiting for you Gordon…” the only embellishment.

It’s not the entire game though. Project leader Carlos Montero said in a community post:

“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!”

More content will be on the way, it seems.
