Black Mesa, Half-Life Remake in Source Engine, leaves Early Access and fully releases on March 5th

Crowbar Collective has announced that Black Mesa will leave Early Access and will be fully released on March 5th. This basically means that Black Mesa will be feature-complete, and will have both the “Black Mesa” and the Xen levels.

Black Mesa is a fan remake of the first Half-Life game in Source Engine. The game hit Early Access on May 5th, 2015. Thus, it took almost five years for its development team to complete it.

If you have already purchased the game, you can try its release build, version 1.0, in its beta phase. Naturally, the final build will have some additional bug fixes and QoL improvements.

As the Black Mesa team concluded:

“Black Mesa is a video game, it is our video game, and it has its strengths, and its flaws. As Leonardo da Vinci said, “Art is never finished, only abandoned” and while we plan to fully support this game after 1.0 with bug fixes and more, it will never be a perfect game.”
