Free-to-play shooter Blacklight: Retribution coming to PS4
Blacklight: Retribution, a free-to-play first-person shooter available only on PC, will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Sony announced. Like the PC version, Blacklight: Retribution's free-to-play business model will also carry over to the PS4, further emphasizing Sony's commitment to free-to-play games.
"One year and over two million players since its launch, Blacklight: Retribution has been available on PC, but from the start of development Zombie Studios has always wanted Blacklight: Retribution to be available on PlayStation," said Zombie Studios' communications manager Collin Moore.
The game includes 10 maps ranging from the urban war zone of Deadlock to the operational training facility of Helodeck. It also offers nine different game modes including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Domination, Netwar, Kill Confirmed, and Onslaught our co-op survival mode.
Sony is no stranger to the free-to-play business model. The company already operates PlanetSide 2 and DC Universe Online as free-to-play. CCP Games' Dust 514, an MMOFPS that links to the MMO EVE Online, is currently in beta testing and will offer a completely free multiplayer experience with the option to buy weapons and upgrades from an in-game store.
