Greetings to all Black Mesa and Azure Sheep fans.


We understand that there has not been any news from us for a long time, but the development is still on!

At the moment, the modification is expanded with 11 new maps and an upgraded part from the demo.

We are currently focused on merging all of the existing maps. Now we can play the mod from start to finish. Building maps is almost done, all new locations just expand the mod. But we still have to polish and improve them.

Our team also is working on:

- Creating and refining the soundtrack


Aslan Akhmetov - Parallel (Xen Atmosphere) - ModDB

- Script realization (this one takes too much time, unfortunately)

- Adding new models

- Writing new dialogues

- Improving weapons animations

- Making сhanges to the previous locations

The exact release date has not yet been determined, but we want to finish everything this summer. We hope Black Mesa Xen will not give us more work.

We also want to remind you that we are not a commercial team. We are a group of people whose hobby and objective is to create modifications. All financies are put into current work on the Azure Sheep remake. If you want to support the project – we accept donates.

Good luck to you and us.

which means you either used an existing mod on the Steam Workshop or you made the whole thing up in an attempt to get some attention.

When I compare this game to Renegade-X, Starcraft Mass Recall and the upcoming Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth, they have more quality advantages over this one overall and even those are free to play and download. I am not paying a single cent for this indie game even when Xen is released despite under the Source Engine 2013 and limited multiplayer. Probably by then when this game is finished the graphics will be outdated compared to the more developed Unreal Engine 3 and 4 games, free or not.

I am already utterly disappointed with the developers using Valve's permission to sell the remake even when it's not worth anything at all.

Comparing FPS to RTS is nonsense but I kinda gleaned a different meaning of "as a remake i don't see the point because by the time its done it'll still look dated" which is totally fair.

Um. Excuse me, but it seems more like FPSs aren't your cup of tea than the game being low quality as all the games you compared this to are RTS not FPSs. It is more proper to compare this to games like DOOM and COD. Also, graphics aren't everything. Who gives a **** whether a game is made in Source, Unreal, Unity, or any other engine (unless it is some crap engine made by 3 russians in a basement)

What is the difference between this mod and the one on Steam?
Why should I spend 19.99$?
Are both the same?

this mod is now officially dead.

The steam version will include mutiplayer, lastest updates and xen.

I personally fell like this is a game, because of all the original content the devs made to it.

If some modder that made his mod free come and say "**** you, they reused assets!" Also remember that The Stanley Parable ALSO used some assets, but still is a game and an awesome one. Why all this rage? Honestly they have spent 8 years on this and I wouldn't mind paying 20$ since this is a great title and almost everyone on the america is full of money.

(The rest of the comment wasn't for you, but mostly to the people who say this sucks, sorry any disturbance).

The mods not dead, they already said they are going to port over fixes and other things from the steam release to the mod when they get the time to.

No. They are not planning to release any bug fixes of continue to support it as stated on their Steam FAQ Steamcommunity.com
"Will the mod be updated with Xen and other features when it’s finished?
Unfortunately it is impossible to backport our new features to the mod engine. With the retail version we have access to parts of the engine we could not touch in the mod version."

Yet i'm pretty sure there will be some modders who will try as best they can to port Xen to mod version)) Not saying it will look and work well, probs even a bit broken but it's possible!

It is worth those 20 dollars for this.
