Blacklight: Retribution and Daylight developer Zombie Studios has formerly shut down its doors today after roughly 21 years.
Blacklight developer Zombie Studios is making a new game with Epic's Unreal Engine 4, it's announced.
The completed version of Blacklight: Retribution, the free-to-play PC-only follow-up to 2010 console FPS Blacklight: Tango Down, is available now, publisher Perfect World has announced.
The sequel to 2010 downloadable FPS Blacklight: Tango Down has just got itself a name - Blacklight Retribution - and a publisher.
First revealed earlier this year, the Zombie Studios-developed game is being re-modeled as a free-to-play PC shooter, built on Unreal Engine 3 with DirectX 11 support.
As shown in the trailer below, the game is taking a more futuristic approach than its predecessor, with rocket-powered mechs joining the fray.
Multiplayer FPS Blacklight: Tango Down finally hits PlayStation Network this week but gamers looking for Move compatibility will be disappointed. Developer Zombie Games is much more interested in 3D.
Next week a gaming behemoth lands in our waters. Call of Duty: Black Ops – a game with pre-order numbers big enough to cause retail waves that'll surge higher and further than even those generated by Modern Warfare 2.
The lead designer of Blacklight: Tango Down has hit back at critics of the downloadable multiplayer FPS on the eve of the game's belated PlayStation Network release.
Blacklight: Tango Down will launch on PlayStation Network on 3rd November, publisher UTV Ignition Entertainment has announced.
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.
Zombie Studios boss Mark Long has said that the studio has already turned its attention to Blacklight: Tango Down 2.
Two World Cup-themed weapon tags for Xbox 360 download shooter Blacklight: Tango Down are available.
Blacklight has arrived on the FPS scene with unusual swagger. Kicking in the door, it slumps in your favourite chair, puts its blood-crusted combat boots up on your coffee table and starts making wild, testosterone-fuelled boasts. "Yeah, I'm bringing AAA gameplay in a download game," it scoffs while stubbing a cigar out on the arm of the sofa that you haven't even started paying DFS for yet.
"Oh, and I'm going to be in a comic and a movie," it adds, spitting a sticky mouthful of tobacco phlegm onto your carpet. "Basically, I'm awesome, and you should be licking the powder burns off my still-smoking assault rifle in gratitude because I cost less than a large stuffed crust from Dominos."
It's an impressive display, but it always helps to make sure you're walking the walk before talking the talk. Blacklight doesn't.
Launching in 3, 2... Oh, it's out.

New world order meets zombie terror.
There are a lot of cultural reference points in games these days, deliberate and otherwise, and sometimes they're all the hook you need. But they're also open to misinterpretation. For example, when I sit down to play Blacklight: Tango Down all I can think about is mood lighting and ageing British TV adverts for crap soft drinks.
