Black Mesa reintroduces the player as Doctor Gordon Freeman, along with the original cast of memorable characters and environments as provided by Valve.
Black Mesa was built and founded on the basis that Half-Life: Source didn’t fully live up to the potential of a Source engine port of Half-Life, so they fully reconstruct the Half-Life universe.
The newly upgraded version of Half-Life isn’t yet available through Steam, but the developer’s website has multiple options for download and is available at no cost. The games soundtrack is also available for free.
To partake in the festivities of the midnight release, users will have to install Steam as well as the Source SDK Base 2007 which is also free.
According to Wikipedia in its eight years in development, Black Mesa has been featured in several video game publications and received direct attention from the software developer.
Happy “Black Mesa” Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!!!
