Dev Says Blacklight: Retribution Looks As Good As $60 Retail Games

Zombie Studios released a new developer diary for their upcoming free-to-play shooter, Blacklight: Retribution. They make the bold postulation that Blacklight is a game not to be ignored and that the experience and visuals are about on par with what you would get from a $60 retail game.

Some of you might be wondering why Blacklight: Retribution isn’t on consoles even though the first game was. Well, Perfect World wasn’t keen on playing Microsoft’s three-game publishing requirement, so for now Blacklight: Retribution is only going to be available on PC. You can check out some of the new features that will be in the free-to-play PC exclusive in the dev diary below.

So, being the objective gamers that you are…does Blacklight: Retribution look like a game worth playing and more importantly, does it look like it offers everything you might find in a $60 retail game? Personally, it looks more like a $39.95 multiplayer-only title. But that’s just my humble opinion. I don’t think tossing a lot of tessellation at a game instantly makes it $60 worthy.

Blacklight: Retribution features fully customizable weapons, character leveling, a diverse selection of maps and competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes. You can learn more about the game or sign-up to participate in the closed beta, which is scheduled to go live two days after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches, November 10th.
