Blacklight: Retribution servers shutting down next month

Free-to-play FPS Blacklight: Retribution is pulling the plug on its mostly-empty servers on March 11th, so say developers Hardsuit Labs via Reddit. The cyberpunk team shooter had a good run, first launching in 2010 as the commercial Blacklight: Tango Down (and the developers were called Zombie) before rebooting as Retribution in 2012. For its final month on PC (the PS4 version is still safe), Hardsuit Labs…

Laid To Rest: Spec Ops Creator Zombie Studios Closes

After two decades making games, Zombie Studios have shut down. Since 1994, they've created the tactical shooter series Spec Ops, brought Zork into semi-3D with Zork Nemesis, dabbled in free-to-play with multiplayer FPS Blacklight: Retribution, spooked people with Daylight, and more. While Zombie is going to the grave [strong wordplay, and tactful too -ed.], Blacklight will live on. Some of the Zombie team have formed…

[CENSORED]: Special Forces: Team X

Imagine if I were to write a [CENSORED] where you couldn't understand [CENSORED] that was going [CENSORED] because [CENSORED] bars were everywhere for no apparent [CENSORED]. Wouldn't that be [CENSORED]? And yet, that's exactly what the latest trailer of Blacklight [CENSORED] Zombie Studios' Special Forces: Team X does, probably because [CENSORED]. It's a weird choice, to say [CENSORED]. Watch the parts of it that are…

War Of The Humans In Tanks: Blacklight’s Siege Mode

Blacklight: Retribution is a bit like a surprise birthday party. For the longest time, I thought nothing of it and went on with my daily business. Then, one day, it crept into my home, turned out the lights, and shouted "SURPRISE!" so loud that I dropped my groceries and grabbed a lamp to brandish in a threatening fashion. I continue to be shocked by how…

Beta Unblocked: Blacklight: Retribution’s Open Beta

Another game that's gone through the retail meat grinder and come out as a tasty free-to-play sausage is Blacklight: Retribution. I've heard good things about Zombie Studio's multiplayer FPS, but I've been kept from the abattoir by a big sign that said "Closed: BETA!". Aside from the questionable typography, it kept me at arm's length. Well now we get to see how the gaming sausage…

Blacklight: Retribution Contains Guns, Men

The signup for Blacklight: Retribution's closed beta is ongoing and another trailer has emerged for your viewing pleasure. It shows off some shooting, some explosions, some vehicles and a mech with strangely chubby legs. But don't take my word for it - see below and attempt to spot all those things for yourself! Perhaps make some form of checklist. That way the trailer is a…

Seedy Looking: Blacklight Retribution Trailer

Blacklight Retribution is a strange name for a game. Is it about some creepy serial killer who was caught when his semen showed up in a victim's basement under the investigator's blacklight, and now - having escaped from prison - he plans to destroy every last ultraviolet bulb in the world? No - insanely it is not. It is in fact the sequel to Blacklight:…

Blacklight Retribution Is Foxtrot Two Papa

Zombie Studio's shooter Blacklight Tango Down didn't go down particularly well with us. We did shrugging and said "s'ahright, spose...", but our indifference has not defeated it because it's back, BACK this year with a fresh incarnation of Unreal-powered near-future gun action: Blacklight Retribution. And there are robots! Slidey rocket-propelled crazybots, if this trailer is to be believed, which is should be, as it is…
