Black Mesa Source out now, here's how to get it

Black Mesa Source, a remake of Valve's original Half-Life is available now after years of waiting. Relive your fond memories today.

UPDATE: it seems like the whole world is trying to download the game at the moment, meaning torrent trackers and download links are either slow or down. We've listed a few places you can get the game below, but bear in mind they might not be working at all times.

The announcement was made over at the official Black Mesa Source site, and the game can currently be accessed via official torrent, which you can grab here. A second torrent can now be found here.

Their site is going insane with traffic just now though, so the devs have kindly popped the game on to Dropbox too.

Black Mesa Source covers all of the original game up to the Xen stages, which will be released as a whole other game at a later date.

Props to AbsoluteZero for flagging up this Shacknews download link too. Thanks.

We've also got in-game screens while you wait for your download. You can find them here.

Thanks PC Gamer.
