Black Mesa, the broad picture of Half-Life 1, is quite near completion. So close, in actuality, that programmer Crowbar Collective needs players to check the release candidate build.

At a Steam announcement, Crowbar Collective declared it’s pushed a whole build to some public beta division, with the goal of the construct then getting the exact same one released while the game comes from early access. In effect, unless there are really no major, unexpected problems that need fixing in the last minute, this will be the release build of Black Mesa.
