Black Mesa - IGN Exclusive Xen Gameplay

A News for Black Mesa

Earlier today IGN published what is 15 minutes of gameplay through the upcoming Xen Chapters. We finally can look at how Xen has evolved from the blocky dull short chapters in Half-Life 1. And I can say it's Outstanding and had changed the way we've always seen Xen chapters before.

The first video is the opening 6 minutes of the first chapter "Xen" starting from the point Gordon Freeman is in the portal heading towards Xen, and it starts pretty much like the trailer but with full sequence played. Then we explore the first few areas of the gorgeous Xen atmosphere.

The second video is 9 minutes of exploration inside what it seems to be a Xen Jungle forest and it's something we have never EVER experienced before in the original Xen chapters from HL1.

Both videos are recorded in 1080p and 60 FPS stable, actually all resolutions you can choose from has 60 FPS which is great so everyone can enjoy the smooth experience on all devices easily. I myself recommend either 720p or 1080p for the best graphics possible since it deserves to be watched on highest resolution possible.
For me the videos are just awesome, words can't describe how i'm hyped for this and I hope we're seeing it very very soon. Thanks for Crowbar Collective for all this great work, you deserve the best guys :D
