Blacklight: Tango Down gets PSN-exclusive content
To apologise to PS3 users for the game’s delay on the console (we like to think so anyway), Zombie Studios and Ignition Entertainment have announced that the PSN version of Blacklight: Tango Down will not only be fully-updated but also feature an exclusive map, bringing the total number of multiplayer maps to thirteen.
Entitled Crossover, this is ‘an all-new map that draws players into the financial district just as it turns into a warzone. Players enter the map just as The Order hijacks a commuter train, fills it with explosives and sends it careening into the heart of Balik. It is up to Blacklight to beat The Order at their own game by sabotaging the tracks and rescuing the train’. Intriguing.
As we reported last week, Blacklight is finally releasing on PSN this week, but that means the title is now directly competing with FPS heavyweights Medal of Honor and Call of Duty: Black Ops (not to mention the ridiculous amount of other games coming out in the next couple of months), so we don’t know if many people will now be interested.
However, to be fair sales figures on other platforms have been pretty impressive, as the title has sold over a million copies since its release in July. There is clearly a market for this kind of game, and the exclusive map is a nice addition, but we’ll have to wait and see if its PSN sales suffer due to its unfortunate release date.
Blacklight: Tango Down releases on the PlayStation Network on 26th October in North America, and 3rd November in Europe, and will be priced at $14.99/£9.99.
