Ignition Announces Multiplayer Shooter Blacklight: Tango Down
Downloadable titles are becoming bigger and better with every passing month, and the latest is a multiplayer-oriented shooter that could be well worth your time and money.
Ignition Entertainment has officially announced Blacklight: Tango Down, "a near-future first person shooter that will offer AAA-quality military shooter action in a downloadable package." Developed by Zombie Studios, it will arrive this summer for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Set in the fictional universe of Blacklight and utilizing the power of the Unreal Engine 3, we will have the benefit of "disturbingly detailed and old-world architecture dripping with modern sci-fi lighting and brightly lit advertisements." Don't confuse the latter part with real in-game ads, though; these are included for the sake of the environment, so the player will still feel as if the futuristic atmosphere is "hauntingly familiar." Said Ajay Chada, Ignition President of Worldwide Studios:
"We’re excited to be working on a gripping new franchise that will deliver the intense action, thoughtful tactics and in-depth strategies of today’s best multiplayer shooters immersed in an all new universe that gamers will really sink their teeth into. Blacklight: Tango Down is set to change the way gamers view the possibilities of downloadable content because it will offer shooter fans the top quality, deep content and exciting experience that they are used to finding in a retail product but in a downloadable package."
Available gameplay modes will include the standard Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, while more will be revealed as the game gets closer to launch. According to the press release, Blacklight's standout element will be the "deep customization features." Players will have the opportunity to upgrade and customize everything from their character to their weapons; customizing your weapons will come with time as the player unlocks more skill and experience points. You will also find a variety of items with which to upgrade, so stay on the lookout for those. Here's hoping Blacklight: Tango Down really does separate itself from the pack...
