A Half-Life Remake called Black Mesa will launch this month. September 14th will apparently mark the release and allow players to play through the game up to Lambda Core, according to a post on the Black Mesa official forum. “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,” said project leader Carlos Montero in the post.
However, this is not to be confused with Half-Life: Source, which was the original game re-mastered in Source. Instead, Black Mesa sees the game rebuilt from the ground up, built entirely as a conversion of Half-Life 2 in Source. Black Mesa was originally intended to be released in 2009, but it was later delayed. Despite the fact that the initial release will be part of Half-Life, the team promised the rest of the game is still very much in development.
“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,” Montero added. “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!”
You can find more information at the Black Mesa official website. The game’s soundtrack is also available to purchase with a pay-what-you-want price model.
At least this should distract Half-Life fans while they continue to wonder what’s happening with Half-Life 3.
