People over at the Black Mesa forums just posted a new holiday screenshot of the Black Mesa game, which seems now to be called Xen.

According to the post, the team is now focusing on gameplay: "The team remains, as always, hard at work on Xen," they explained. "Currently our specific focus is on gameplay: crafting a fun and cohesive experience from start to finish. We want our version of Xen to feel like it really belongs with the rest of the game in terms of mechanics, cohesion and progression. But we also want to push the boundaries and explore this unique and varied setting; to build an experience that feels both fresh and familiar to players from all walks of Half-Life veterancy. While our Xen is certainly going to be gorgeous, we are first and foremost really committed to making sure that the gameplay works on every level."

As for more information, the team promises that in the coming months, but for now you can check the first official published screenshot of the game below. Is the new name better than the old?
