PostPosted: Wed Nov 27, 2013 22:52    Post subject:  New release of Black Mesa on steam
Subject description: commercial version of BM to be sold on steam
 

There will be a new commercial version of Black Mesa for purchase on steam. The dev team has made an agreement with Valve which allows them to sell BM as a standalone game. The retail version will be ported to the new engine.

The Plan:
Soon you'll see Black Mesa available on Steam for a relatively low price. But we aren't dropping all support for the free version. In fact shortly after the Steam release there will be a completely new free version of the game. We also plan to open source our maps and some game assets to the modding community!
Purchasing the Steam version of Black Mesa is more about supporting the team and our efforts than anything else. However, the Steam version will include features that the free version simply can not have. We will be paying careful attention to feedback, and you'll have a very real say in how the final game turns out.

Long-Term Plans and Xen:
We've been overwhelmed by fan anticipation for Xen, and we're excited so many people are eager to conclude the game. To be totally honest however, Xen is still a ways off. Over the past year, we have spent a HUGE amount of time porting the game to a new engine and fixing hundreds of bugs. The work to port to the new engine was not because of the decision to go retail, this was work that had to be done to get Black Mesa onto Steam and support our future plans.
So, please be patient with us as we work to make Xen a stunning and worthy conclusion to Black Mesa. Until Xen is completed, we have multiple interesting additions planned for the Steam version of Black Mesa, which we will announce later on down the road.

So, what we know for sure is:
1. The new BM will be released on steam for purchase
2. The commercial version will be on the new engine. The dev team can't disclose what engine it is but people speculate that it may be Source 2.
3. They will release new free version but it will be not distributed via steam.
4. The code will be open source for modders.

The release dates are to be announced. We don't know if Xen chapters and Deathmatch will be available for free version.

Do you think that BM Deathmatch could be a good alternative for HL2DM? As a retail game I expect a proper support from the developers.
Still we know nothing about HL3 and I doubt that valve will make HL3DM. I hope HL2DM community will move to the BM deathmatch.
What do you think guys? Are you going to buy this game?

I would buy it if it meant more people playing its DM. I really miss HL2DM and want to play it but there is never anyone playing. I suspect a lot of people feel the same as I do.
Also, I still have faith that Valve will release HL3 and HL3DM I just hope they do it before we're all dead Laughing Maybe our grandkids can play it Confused
Either way, thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of this.

Use the server browser there's always people playing if you miss it. Laughing
If the movement is slow in BMDM I can see no one playing it for very long.

That's possible but I hope they know what the "true" deathmatch means.
After release of BM, deathmach should be their priority because they can make money with it. I think that with proper support (updates, steam workshop) the game may become popular for longer time.
