Half-Life Remake Black Mesa preps for its 1.0 release

Black Mesa is almost ready for its 1.0 launch, with Crowbar Collective’s development efforts now being focused on releasing a 1.0 preview release, a beta which will pave the game’s way out of Steam’s Early Access programme. 

For the uninitiated, Black Mesa is a fan-remake of Valve’s Half-Life. The remake received Valve’s blessing and became a retail product on Steam and now stands as one of the best ways to replay Valve’s seminal shooter.  

Version 1.0 will be Black Mesa’s official release, but Crowbar Collective has confirmed that its work on the game will not end there. Version 1.5, which is also known as “Black Mesa: Definitive Edition” is also on the works, an update which will polish some areas of the game and polish some of the title’s artwork. Improvements to the game’s Steam Workshop support is also on the cards. 

Black Mesa started its early access journey in 2015, and soon that journey will be at an end. At this time it is unknown what Crowbar Collective will do after the full release of Black Mesa and its “Definitive Edition” update. All we know is that we will be looking at the team’s future products with interest. 

As it stands, Black Mesa is one of the best ways to re-experience Half-Life, offering higher quality visuals, enhanced gameplay in several areas and the same story that we know and love from the original. Expect more news soon as Black Mesa’s release draws nearer.
