The mod team behind the upcoming Black Mesa have released an official trailer for their upcoming Source Engine total conversion - a re-creation of the original and classic Half-Life.
Black Mesa (formerly Black Mesa: Source) is a Half-Life 2 total conversion remaking VALVe Software's award-winning PC game, Half-Life. Utilizing the Source engine, Black Mesa will reintroduce the player as Doctor Gordon Freeman, along with the original cast of memorable characters and environments seen in Half-Life. Black Mesa was built and founded on the basis that Half-Life: Source was inadequate as the Source engine port of Half-Life, regardless of the intentions of VALVe Software. As such, Black Mesa was founded to fully reconstruct the Half-Life universe utilizing Source to its fullest potential in terms of art detail, level sizes and code features. This total conversion will not require Half-Life: Source to play - only a copy of any Source Engine game installed on Steam.
Today's trailer offers a very slick look at the mod, definitely a cut-above what you would usually expect from a project like this. Check it out right here
In addition to a complete re-creation of the original Half-Life singleplayer campaign, Black Mesa intends to support full cooperative multiplayer and a deathmatch component. You can find a few more screenshots on our game page
