Crowbar Collective posts 2 new Xen screenshots.

Recommended Posts

It looks like a view from under the ocean, rather than the actual Xen to me. But, I also approve this new Xen since I LIKE BLUE COLOR.

Xen always looked like that, just a different color palette.

It does remind me of the ocean floor which in of itself is pretty alien looking, so this interpretation of Xen is effective.

Is it bad that I'm more amazed by the new dynamic light system than Xen?

 

Probably....

 

In any case, this looks awesome and I'm looking forward to playing it.

Is Xen supposed to be so pretty and fairytale-like?

Well it's like half-life meets avatar to me... I've hated the xen jumping puzzles,  but the world in itself was very alien looking.

It's as if they took the sunlust.wad and imported it into the source engine. Absolutely sublime!

It's looking good. This will be worth another playthrough.

Thanks for the heads up, haven't checked for news as of late. These areas looks AMAZING, instant eyergasm.

Seems like Xen might be half the length of the Black Mesa campaign when its finished. That is a hefty update and no wonder its taken so long.

Course not, I'd be almost amazed if anything new in HL's universe ever gets made by Valve, and if it will it won't be the same since the majority of the staff is gone. It'll quite possibly include micro-transactions too, so that's an absolute skip from me. There's some rumors about a HL:VR that's supposedly a prequel to HL2 but does anyone still believe HL rumors after over a decade of absolute silence? Oh, and there's that Portal and HL movies which are still in the shadows.

 

Moving on, not an exact release date, but it's coming sometime in Q2 2019 (Huh, so it's going to be sometime during the summer again).

 

That trailer was unbelievable, I would've never expected to see a trailer before Xen's actual release, but they did it, and man doesn't that look amazing. Fresh, on a much larger scale, very immersive and yet so familiar, but we still don't know a whole lot about it since they aren't going to spill the beans just yet. Interloper is said to be very different from the rest of the chapters, but we haven't seen anything from it for instance.

 

Now all that's left is knowing what they changed in the NPC and graphics department as well as a new update on the state of the chapters in December.

The Source engine is looking as beautiful and impressive as it ever has.

I really wonder what's the point of that tower. Or could it be some kind of citadel? That's actually the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw it.

Looks great. Reminds me of bits of No Man's Sky, but also "Annihilation"

It's a Remake of this most likely, a portal which you jump into in one of the outdoor Interloper sections (c4a1a), but now re-imagined to be in some sort of tower instead, hopefully you still get to it on top of this one of these Alien Crafts heh (with less platforming ofc).
