Blacklight: Retribution gets release date

Sequel to 2010 shooter Blacklight: Tango Down, Retribution is set for an April 3 release by Perfect World Entertainment. Unlike its predecessor, the game will be free to play and released exclusively on PC.

The game is set to include deeper customization, with both weapons and characters being customizable this time around. New maps, weapons and characters will also be included, with the developers stating a more futuristic look will be adopted this time around complete with mechanised suits.

Currently in open beta, the game is undergoing a bonus XP weekend. If you’re curious, it appears now would be the best time to give it a try.
