Black Mesa, the fan-made remake of the original Half-Life 1, has finally received a release date of September 14, as its small yet intrepid team of developers is ready to release the recreated game.
Half-Life 1 came out back in 1998 and, while Valve itself launched a Half-Life: Source version, with the old game running in its new Source engine, it still had the same old graphics and visual effects.
As such, a bunch of fans decided to fully recreate the iconic game in the Source engine, complete with overhauled graphics and textures.
Now, after a lengthy wait and multiple delays, Black Mesa
is finally ready to be released on the PC platform on September 14.
The project’s website now displays a special countdown clock and the message: “They’re waiting for you, Gordon.”
According to its developers, they’re still working on some areas of the game, so the current version will feature the campaign up until the Lambda Core segment, which should provide around 10 hours of gameplay.
Expect to hear more about the project soon enough.
