In March 2021, we informed you about a Half-Life Blue Shift remake in the Black Mesa engine, Black Mesa: Blue Shift. And today, we are happy to report that HECU Collective has released its second chapter.
In Black Mesa: Blue Shift, players will relive the Black Mesa Incident as Gordon Freeman’s best friend, Barney Calhoun. This fan remake currently has the first two chapters of Blue Shift. These chapters are Living Quarters Outbound and Insecurity.
Additionally, HECU Collective added keyboard/mouse/xbox controller icons in the binding options in the new UI. The team also redid some dialogues in the first chapter, fixed some bugs and extended it’s ending for a few minutes.
You can download Black Mesa: Blue Shift from its official ModDB page.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
