Happy Holidays!


The team remains, as always, hard at work on Xen! Currently our specific focus is on gameplay: crafting a fun and cohesive experience from start to finish. We want our version of Xen to feel like it really belongs with the rest of the game in terms of mechanics, cohesion and progression. But we also want to push the boundaries and explore this unique and varied setting; to build an experience that feels both fresh and familiar to players from all walks of Half-Life veterancy. While our Xen is certainly going to be gorgeous, we are first and foremost really committed to making sure that the gameplay works on every level.


To give a bit of an exciting tease into what we’re doing at the moment, and as our own little holiday gift to you lot, please enjoy our first ever publicly released screenshot of Xen!


We will have more media for the community in the coming months, as well as more detailed updates as to how we are progressing. Right now we are up against a tough deadline, but we are committed and excited to work towards it and to finally unveil the definitive Black Mesa experience for everyone to enjoy.


Be kind to each other out there, and again, have a happy holiday!


And here's the aforementioned pic






It's a long time coming, but it looks like we'll have the Xen levels in Black Mesa soon, I hope.

You and me both, the entire game in my case. I haven't played BM partly because i'm holding out until the Xen levels are released and mostly because my computer can't handle the game's specs.

It's really missing the feel of the original levels man. I mean I guess I can see the influences but it feels a lot more like those generic caves from episode 1 more then it reminds me in any way of Zen. Kind of sad really, but I hope it'll be fine when it finally comes out to the masses. Gotta hold out the hope.

The screenshot could just be one of the many caves that Xen has, I'm sure they're going to keep the open space vibe... probably.
