Blacklight: Retribution gets new mode, maps on PS4 today
The PS4 version of Blacklight: Retribution -- still currently in beta -- received a patch today that adds a new game mode and more maps, among other things. Developer Zombie Studios today touched on a few of the "really, really good" features of today's patch which are:
Onslaught Game Mode
Similar to Gears of War's Horde Mode, Onslaught pits four Blacklight Agents against an endless horde of infected.
Each wave and enemy type will force you to adapt as the threat changes. If you bank too heavily on fortifying one area, you might find yourself overrun. But if you remain too light and mobile, you may not have the heavy firepower you need to punch through what comes next. Rely on your wits and gear to see you through it. Those who find a way to succeed will be rewarded for their efforts!
Two new multiplayer maps
Today's patch brings the Decay and Metro maps to multiplayer. Below are each of their descriptions:
Metro is set in an abandoned subway station long since taken over by squatters. Players will face fierce firefights in the narrow corridors. Only teams who find a way to exploit open avenues of attack can succeed here. Watch your flanks, and make sure you know which way the threat is coming.
Decay is a slum fortress set deep in the worst and most rundown area of the city. Threats will come from above and below in this rat warren. Teams will need to stay sharp as they move together and watch the roof tops and ruined buildings. Keep your eyes peeled for ambushes in the shadows, and don’t get pinned down.
Private Matches, Matchmaking Improvements & Game Optimizations
The ability to set up a private match for just you and your friend(s) has been enabled. Additionally, Zombie Studios has worked to make it easier for you to find a match and has added tools that will "let us further tune this moving forward." Lastly, some behind the scenes optimizations should result in improved frame rates, faster loads, and a smoother experience overall.
Blacklight: Retribution is currently free-to-play on PlayStation 4.
