Yep, you read that right. The long awaited Black Mesa Half-Life total conversion is now available to download!
For those not in the loop, Black Mesa is a total conversion (remake) of the critically-acclaimed Valve Corp. game Half-Life. Black Mesa re-introduces Gordon Freeman to the world, with remade levels and upgraded graphics. It has been in development for over 8 years and many had abandoned it as abandonware (see what I did there?) until a recent announcement saying that the game would be released on September 14th. A Steam Greenlight listing then appeared – on the 13th September the game was confirmed as Greenlit, meaning that Valve has “reached out to this developer to start moving things toward release on Steam”.
You can download Black Mesa from the Official Site, although be warned – the servers are pretty hammered right now! In the meantime, watch the trailer:
