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 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 will include a full co-operative gameplay component – entitled “Black Ops” – in addition to the game’s already robust line-up of competitive multiplayer game modes.
“With Blacklight: Tango Down, we are raising the bar for what gamers can expect from DLC, with the kind of experience that traditionally is found in a $60, AAA retail game,” said Ajay Chadha, President of Worldwide Publishing, Ignition Entertainment. “Cooperative play is a critical part of today’s multiplayer experience, and Blacklight: Tango Down will deliver on this fun and dramatic way to play alongside three of your friends. This kind of elite content is what separates Blacklight: Tango Down from other DLC and makes it the most fully featured downloadable-only shooter available on any console or PC.”
The cooperative “Black Ops” portion of Blacklight: Tango Down is a truly intense and exhilarating experience where players deploy as the Blacklight faction, fighting their way through the dilapidated streets of Balik to confront and defeat soldiers from the opposing faction, The Order.
Black Ops missions will increase the deep replay value of the game by offering upgrades, character growth and more to those who choose to take the cooperative battle. Upon completing Black Ops missions, a player will receive a completion score that varies based on the difficulty setting, overall performance and time the player needed to complete the coop mission. Players can then replay the scenarios, perfecting their assault, in a quest to reach the top of the Black Ops leader boards, gain additional XP to grow their character, and earn new weapon tags.
