Black Mesa has launched a new promotion where players get the chance to win a Custom Origin PC. This latest offer is in celebration of the release of the latest patch. Anyway, the best way to describe this Custom PC is that it’s both brains and brawn.

Don’t believe us? Below are the specifications:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-11600K
  • Ram Memory: 32 GB of Corsair Vengeance White RGB PRO DDR4 at 2666 MHz
  • GPU: EVGA RTX 2060
  • OS Drive: 480 GB Force MP510 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD
  • Storage: 500 GB BarraCuda Seagate HDD

All of these are placed inside a sleek Corsair 4000D Airflow case.

For the chance to win, just visit the site and start completing the actions. You can read the terms and conditions here. The promotion starts September 15 and ends October 6. Only entries made during this official time frame are considered valid.

Those who won’t be able to get the top prize have the chance to get Steam gift cards and Black Mesa game keys.


As mentioned, this latest promotion arrives at the same time as a new patch. One important highlight is that it’s going to break save. This means that players need to start the chapter again or continue by loading a map through the console.

Some of the code fixes include:

  • Fixed crash in Interloper A (offset enemy spawn in times).
  • Fixed the HEV chargers giving you the wrong charge amount.
  • Fix for “No Free Edicts” issue in Interloper (timer on Interloper Agunt Pods).
  • Optimized Interloper elevator sequence.
  • Fixed female scientists not healing you.
  • Fixed HEV scientist bodies showing revolver icon on item pickup.
  • Added enginetools.txt to the bin folder.
  • Implemented a fix for the new UI not working on Linux.
  • Fixed hangs on Linux when pressing the Escape button.
  • Fixed for the workshop on Linux.

Read all the changes here.

Black Mesa is the fan-made reimagining of the Half-Life game from Valve Software. Like in the original game, players take on the role of a theoretical physicist named Gordon Freeman. While working at the Black Mesa Research Facility, a routine experiment goes wrong leaving Gordon to fight his way through an interdimensional alien invasion and survive a military clean-up crew.
