Half-Life remake Black Mesa finally leaves Steam early access next week

Black Mesa, developer Crowbar Collective’s Valve-sanctioned Half-Life 1 remake, will finally launch on Steam next Thursday, 5th March, after five years in early access.

As it happens, Black Mesa has been around much, much longer than its 2015 early access release might suggest. The project originally began in 2004, as an attempt by fans to recreate 1998’s Half-Life 1 in Valve’s then-new Source engine.

An early iteration of Black Mesa eventually released as a free download in 2012, and then, having received permission from Valve to launch the project commercially, Crowbar ushered an impressive, but incomplete version of the game – which included multiplayer and a ten-hour chunk of the story campaign – into Steam Early Access in 2015.
