Black Mesa Source Will Be Released on September 14, Part One Anyway
Despite the troublesome gameplay video leak that occurred recently concerning Black Mesa Source, the mod that brings the original Half-Life into the updated Half-Life 2 Source engine, it appears that the development team is finally ready to ship the game/mod. It’s good to hear — it’s only been about 8 years… give or take.
“On September 14th you will see the first release of Black Mesa! This will include our re-envisioning of Half-Life all the way up to Lambda Core. 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.”
So while the entirety of BMS might not be 100% content-complete by September 14, at the very least you’ll be able to download the first part, in what appears to be an episodic release schedule, of the mod. We’ll update you on September 14 when the mod becomes available.
Until then… cat gifs.
