'Blacklight: Tango Down' (ALL) Gets A Comic Book

by Rainier on May 20, 2010 @ 8:43 a.m. PDT

Blacklight, an Unreal-engine powered video game, is a covert military action epic set twenty-five years in the future featuring the same characters and high caliber military action as the planned movie and comic book, but with unique, intersecting storylines that complement each other.

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.

Ignition Entertainment and Storm Lion have announced a single shot comic book based on the upcoming multiplayer-focused first-person-shooter Blacklight: Tango Down.

The project is a result of a collaborative process between Blacklight: Tango Down’sdistributor, Ignition Entertainment, the game’s developer Zombie Studios, and Storm Lion Publishing. Created by Zombie Studios co-CEO and style driver Mark Long, Blacklight: Tango Down is written by Jared Gerritzen, Ian Stephens and Cullen Galagher with story by Jason Dean Hall and Eric Lieb, and art direction by Storm Lion’s Zid.

The comic book follows an elite covert ops team as they fight off crazed civilians while trying to rescue an officer from behind enemy lines. The plot ties to the upcoming game while expanding on the lore with a completely separate story line. The comic book will be a pit stop on the non-traditional road the Blacklight franchise is paving, including the summer’s hottest first person shooter and a feature film currently in development.
