Half-Life fans take note. There isn’t any news as to when Valve will eventually announce the next Half-Life title. But, what has recently been announced may just keep you waiting as patiently as ever.
In 2004, some fans were very disappointed with Valve’s remake of the original Half-Life, which utilized the Source engine. So disappointed, that they actually decided to make a new Half-Life remake, dubbed Black Mesa: Source.
Eight years on, and it appears the game may just the “Torchlight” to Blizzard’s “Diablo III”. The community behind the development has announced that the first part of the game will be released on September 14. It will be a “re-envisioning of Half-Life all the way up to Lambda Core”, and promises around 8-10 hours of gameplay.
What’s truly impressive is that the mod is built completely from the ground up, from the models to the voice actors. It will also not require Half-Life: Source to play, but just a Source engine game installed on Steam.
Head on to the mod’s official website here, and make ready that rusty crowbar.
