Ignition Entertainment Announces
Blacklight: Tango Down

Zombie Studios’ New First Person
Shooter to Deliver Intense Multiplayer Action through Downloadable Channels on
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC

Ignition Entertainment and Zombie
Studios are developing Blacklight: Tango Down, a near-future first person
shooter that will offer AAA-quality military shooter action in a downloadable
package. Blacklight: Tango Down will be available Summer 2010 through Xbox LIVE
Arcade for the Xbox 360, PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3, and PC’s.

“We’re excited to be working on a
gripping new franchise that will deliver the intense action, thoughtful tactics
and in-depth strategies of today’s best multiplayer shooters immersed in an all
new universe that gamers will really sink their teeth into,” said Ajay Chada,
President of Worldwide Studios, Ignition Entertainment. “Blacklight: 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.”

Blacklight: Tango Down is a
fast-paced first person shooter based in a new fictional universe called
Blacklight. Utilizing the cutting-edge graphical power of Epic Games’ Unreal
Engine 3, Blacklight: Tango Down’s near-future setting is brought to life with
disturbingly detailed and old-world architecture dripping with modern sci-fi
lighting and brightly lit advertisements, an effect that causes each environment
to appear both futuristically alien as well as hauntingly familiar.

Blacklight: Tango Down will deliver
some of the most exciting multiplayer gameplay available in the shooter category
and features numerous gameplay styles and functionality. These modes include
traditional formats like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch & Control Point, with other
modes being announced in the build up to launch.

Blacklight: Tango Down will set
itself apart from other games by virtue of its incredibly deep customization
features. Players will be able to alter and upgrade not only their character
through experience gained on the battlefield, but also their weapons. Weapon
customizations will unlock as the player gains skill and experience points and
will include more basic add-ons like sniper scopes as well as more complex
enhancements, such as improved accuracy.

Blacklight: Tango Down is expected
to be available in Summer 2010 through Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360,
PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3, and PC via various digital outlets.
