Black Mesa, the Source Engine re-creation of Half-Life, will have its first release on September 14th.
Black Mesa, the Source Engine re-creation of Half-Life, will have its first release on September 14th. Project Leader Carlos Montero announced the news via their community forums early this morning.
Polygon recently spoke with Montero about the game's complications. The project began back in 2004, when a volunteer development team set out to totally remake the game as opposed to a port like Half-Life: Source. Black Mesa was set for a 2009 release, but failed to meet its deadline due to the team's dissatisfaction with the game.
Montero also announced that the game's soundtrack would be available to purchase for whatever price buyers see fit. In addition, the Black Mesa website, wiki, and forums will be temporarily disabled for renovations.
You can purchase the soundtrack and view the official countdown by visiting the Black Mesa site.
Correction: A previous version of this article implied that the creators of the Half-Life port were also involved with Black Mesa.
