Blacklight: Tango Down is a first-person shooter game for the PSN, XBLA, and PC from the team behind America's Army.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Blacklight is a game developed for the PS3, 360, and PC by Zombie Inc. In this military shooter set 25 years in the future, you play as members of an elite covert ops.
The gameplay is similar to that of Call of Duty 4, where customization is extremely important. You can customize everything from your personal appearance to your weaponry. Taking another page from the Modern Warfare series is the leveling system, which goes up to LVL 70. The game was released in Summer 2010 at a price point of $15. Zombie Inc. has also announced plans to bring this product into film and comic books. The weapon customization is very in depth and detailed, with the ability to change anything from the magazine, to the stock and color of your weapon. All of the weapons are based around those used by solders since the 1960's and are grounded in reality. Weapon Tags are also available, and with the amount of customization, no weapon you pick up will be the same as your own, with one of the most robust and huge customization tools seen in a military shooter.
Story and Background[edit | edit source]
In the near-future, the Blacklight: Tango team has been sent to find recently missing Colonel Klein and his personal Blacklight team in the city of Balik. The country had recently broken out in war after the assassination of its president. The rebel group that had killed the president, The Order, is thought to have captured or killed the missing Blacklight team.
They prepare to attack the Order's headquarters when Blacklight Command informs them that the civilians have been infected with an unknown virus, causing them to attack everyone they encounter. As they engage the Order in combat, both sides are attacked by crazed civilians. Because the circumstances have changed, they are ordered to stop The Order at all costs and to Restore a Corrupt world.
