Although Xbox LIVE users have had the game for several months now, those waiting patiently for the PSN version will be rewarded with this content. Read on to learn more about the game.
Glendale, CA - October 21, 2010- Leading up to the release of Blacklight: Tango Down on PlayStation® Network, UTV Ignition Entertainment today announced the PSN-exclusive content that will launch with the game on October 26. Not only will fans enjoy a fully-updated version of the $15 shooter -- which has generated more than a million downloads on Xbox LIVE® Arcade and PC-- but they will also be rewarded with 'Crossover,' an all-new map that draws players into the financial district just as it turns into a warzone. Players enter the map just as The Order hijacks a commuter train, fills it with explosives and sends it careening into the heart of Balik. It is up to Blacklight to beat The Order at their own game by sabotaging the tracks and rescuing the train.
"The team wanted to show fans that the wait for Blacklight on PSN would be well worth it," said Jared Gerritzen, Lead Designer at Zombie Studios. "Now with 13 maps and the brand-new Join in Progress feature, the $15 price tag never looked sweeter."
The recipient of rave reviews throughout the summer - including Game Informer declaring it "stands apart from the pack," Machinima branding it "an extremely solid first-person shooter at a bargain price," and PC Gamer stating "it feels nothing like a budget shooter" - Blacklight: Tango Down is set to provide PSN gamers the same wild ride that XBLA and PC gamers have been on for months.
In Blacklight: Tango Down, players are equipped with high-tech, futuristic gear that makes combat fascinating and surreal. Its weapon customization system allows for trillions of different configurations that deliver unlimited adaptability and variety of gameplay. Each player is also equipped with a Hyper Reality Visor (HRV), an advanced imaging system in the player's Heads-up Display that detects nearby enemy and friendly forces and relays the information back to players, giving them immediate battlefield intelligence. UTV Ignition Entertainment will also offer players a free tour of duty in the engaging Blacklight universe with a downloadable multiplayer demo that will be available on the PlayStation® Network alongside the title's release.
