Ignition Entertainment and Zombie Studios are bringing a near-future, first-person shooter to XBLA, PSN and PC.
The game, coming summer 2010, will be based in the fictional universe of Blacklight and will use Unreal Engine 3 to bring this world to life. Players will be able to upgrade and customise their characters whilst enjoying numerous varied multiplayer modes.
â€œWeâ€™re excited to be working on a gripping new franchise that will deliver the intense action, thoughtful tactics and in-depth strategies of todayâ€™s best multiplayer shooters immersed in an all new universe that gamers will really sink their teeth into,â€ said Ajay Chadha, Head of Worldwide Publishing, Ignition Entertainment.Â â€œBlacklight: Tango Down is set to change the way gamers view the possibilities of downloadable content because it will offer shooter fans the top quality, deep content and exciting experience that they are used to finding in a retail product but in a downloadable package.â€
“We could not ask for a better partner than Ignition,â€ said Mark Long, of Zombie. â€œTheir digital distribution focus is visionary.Â It matches the aspirations we have for this franchise which already include a feature film and comic.â€
