Now I don't want to get everyone's hopes up, even though I totally did with a title like that, but I think we are finally going to see Black Mesa get released this year. The Black Mesa twitter account posted, "When the Black Mesa facebook page hits 20,000 likes we'll be posting some exciting new media!" Well that happened and here you go, new media.
Ok so they're just new screenshots, but they're pretty sweet screenshots. When you think about how this is all from a mod and how much more detail it has then the original Half Life its hard to not be impressed. Screenshots are nothing new however and not a good reason to think its being released. That is until I read this.
Thank you all so much, it's really great to have your support! With your help we have now kicked off our social-media campaign towards our first release! You can expect more updates from us in the near future. Today we are sharing this fantastic batch of screenshots that really gives you the first glimpse into the gameplay of Black Mesa. This is just the beginning. We have more in store for you in the near future! Hold on to your lab coats!
Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but that sounds like, "we are going to release it this year" to me. In conclusion... ah fuck it, GET HYPE!
