Blacklight heading to US PS3s this month

$15 for multiplayer-only first-person shooter.

UTV Ignition and Zombie Studios have announced that Blacklight: Tango Down will be released for PlayStation 3 via PSN on 26th October in the US.

There's no immediate word on a European release date so we've contacted UTV Ignition to see if there's anything doing.

The US version will cost $15 and will include the various updates patched into the game since its Xbox Live Arcade and PC release this summer.

It also includes new features, such as "Join-in-Progress", which lets you and friends jump into a game that's already taking place rather than having to wait for an intermission.

UTV and Zombie have said to expect more PS3-exclusive content soon, too, with further announcements to follow.

Blacklight is a multiplayer-only first-person shooter built on Unreal Engine 3, and its good looks belie its budget price point.

Blacklight only picked up a 5/10 from Eurogamer on release for XBLA this summer, but has proven very popular nonetheless, with more than a million downloads recorded.

Little surprise then that Zombie is already at work on a sequel.

Our first ever multiplayer match on the XBLA version.
