It was originally supposed to launch in 2009 after that trailer got everyone excited back in 2008, but the dev team behind the fan-project to remake the original Half-life in the Source Engine has released a few new screenshots today, half-way through 2012.

There's still no updated release date on the project, but if it's any consolation, it is looking prettier than the last time we saw it and their Facebook updates promise more glimpses in "the near future".

Hit the thumbs below for the eight new revamped images of memorable Black Mesa locations.

Doesn't really look that great. Maybe in 2008 it did.

That's the problem with fans remaking something, sounds good for about 25 minutes then someone goes out to get ciggerettes and never returns having realised the gravity of a project that big.

even if it came out today it would look just as s*** by today's standards as HL1 looked compared to HL2.

Just give up on it.

Looks great to me, guess i am easily satisfied. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, thats the problem with games these days unless they have a excessive about of bloom and hdr they just don't look good to people.

I played HL2 for about 1 hr and got bored to tears. Got CS source and hated it compared to 1.3. I loved HL1 however, so if i can use the source engine that came with CS source then I might just get my moneys worth outta that. I hope they're allowed to use all the original music, that really made that game.

I'd prolly check it out but just thinking of re-doing those xen levels again puts me off.

xen was only daunting because it was so different. playing it again years later as an older more seasoned gamer it isn't that bad, just feels so alien. and that was the point... i hated it at the time too.

i was freaked out by the boss at the end of xen because it sounded like it was saying my name.

lul you must have been waiting a while from when cs 1.3 ended to when source came out because 1.3 was patched over years before

Yeah it's like those people you might run into occasionally and always plan to "go have a drink" but it never eventuates.

It's not valve, it's a fan made remake using hl2 engine. Only thing I remember about xen apart from the different environment is spending ages trying to work out how to jump down the floating rocks.

I had no problems with Xen, you are clearly a bunch of noobs.
