Borealis mod is finally out and available for download!

In case if you never heard about it - it's a mod that restores Borealis chapter in a playable state for HL2 Beta. There're totally 6 maps in this mod + background map for the main menu. Specially for this mod Odell ws fully re-voiced plus many new voice lines were additionally recorded. Also the mod has some other custom content.

The development of this mod was started back in 2009 by a member of our community now known as Alfeos (if you have read changelog.txt of Mega Patch 4 you may recognize that nickname), but he ceased development of the mod back then because of how bugged the original Hl2 beta engine was. After the release of LeakNet and Mega Patch 4.0 he decided to make the mod from scratch and as you can see this attempt was more successfull.

Now this mod, despite all the problems that still exist in the leak engine, is out and everyone can walk through the legendary ship in a company of Odell.

Another media update for Half-Life 2 Raising the Bar: Redux mod appeared on their ModDB page. In it the authors of the mod showed few new model renders, screenshots of some new maps and also a concept art of Consul.
More spesifically they shared renders of new weapon models - .357 Magnuam and
Combine Guard Gun, screenshots of Consul Plaza and Ravenholm starting location and also models of ammo boxes for SMG and Pistol.

All those screenshots were added in mod's gallery on our website.

Also the developers promised to share a second part of this update at the end of December / early January.

Meanwhile everyone have missed the release of a demo by one of the 1997 Half-Life restoration mods. And there's no surprise in this fact, it came out just one day before the release of Half-Life: Alyx trailer!

But we will correct this misdeed. Meet the "Office Warrens" chapter restoration from the In Deep mod by Jackathan. This name is an old name of "Office Complex chapter.

You can download this demo from our website, or from ModDB page of this mod.
And we will only add in the end that we hope this wasn't the last release of In Deep and we will see more of it in the future.

We forgot to commemorate an important date for beta community in October, anniversary of an event that leaded to a very existence of our website - so called Half-Life 2 "Beta" was leaked 16 years ago.

Meanwhile, in joy from the news of the recently announced next installment of Half-Life, we almost forgot about another anniversary. Today it is exactly one year since we released Half-Life 2 Beta: Mega Build.

So what can we tell about this and what are the results?
Firstly, much more people were able to check the "beta" and see what can it show to them about game's development cycle. Per year it was downloaded more than 10 000 times from our website alone, not to count torrents and external resources!
Secondly, people became much more aware what really beta is and what Half-Life 2 was or could be,  and what really was a fantasy from some Fakefactory mod's lovers.
Mega Build was played at by few well-known HL games streamers, who showed the beta to a much wider community and also gave our website a good advertisment, for which we thank all of them.

And finally we can add that this is not the end! You can expect much more content for the HL2 Beta, which means there will be future versions of the Mega Build that will include this new content each time. Stay frosty.
