Blacklight: Retribution Carves A Path To Console World
Free-to-play first-person shooter Blacklight: Retribution is thinking outside its PC box and taking a stab at consoles. Zombie Studios negotiated for console rights with Perfect World Entertainment and they’re definitely pleased with the outcome.
“Reacquiring the console rights to Blacklight: Retribution allows us a great deal of flexibility in the growth of the Blacklight franchise,” said Zombie Studios Creative Head Jared Gerritzen to IGN. “We have always had huge plans for the Blacklight franchise and with this move we will finally be able to bring the game to console.”
The game’s Onslaught expansion was released earlier this week with two Last Man Standing modes and a Search and Destroy mode. Also included in the expansion are two new maps and three extra guns.
No word on which specific consoles will welcome Blacklight: Retribution into their happy homes. Zombie Studios are also developing an Unreal Engine 4 title named Daylight, a game they announced earlier this month in Las Vegas at the DICE summit.
