After 14 years of original Half-Life, a new total conversion of the game is now available for download. Developed using the newest version of the Source Engine, the third-party mod "Black Mesa" took almost 8 years to develop with a volunteer team of 40-persons. The Half-life mod is not just a re-skinned game, but a whole new complete gaming experience. The conversion mod fully exploits the changes in newer "Source Engine" to provide a reconstructed Half-Life universe with better art details, level sizes and code features.
The game is out now for free download and features a brand-new gameplay and feel, with more complex and challenging environments. Black Mesa reintroduces the popular "Half-Life" player character Doctor Gordon Freeman, along with the original characters seen in Half-Life. Offering tremendously detailed environments, a huge cast of characters and experimental weaponry. All-new music, voice acting, choreography and dialogues provides a more expansive and immersive experience than ever before.
