Ignition Entertainment, a UTV Media Communication Company, and Zombie Studios have announced that they are developing a near-future first-person shooter titled Blacklight: Tango Down. Release is scheduled for the Summer of 2010 and the game is to be made available via download for the Xbox LIVE Arcade, the Playstation Network and on the PC.

“We’re delighted 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 Chadha, Head of Worldwide Publishing, 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.”

“We could not ask for a better partner than Ignition,” said Mark Long of Zombie Studios. “Their digital distribution focus is visionary. It matches the aspirations we have for this franchise which already include a feature film and comic.”

Well you certainly can’t fault them for lack of ambition. Blacklight: Tango Down is set to be a fast-paced FPS based in a new fictional universe called Blacklight and which utilises Unreal Engine 3 which will bring its near-future setting to life. We are promised 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.

We are promised some of the most exciting multiplayer gameplay available in the shooter category featuring numerous gameplay styles and functionality including traditional formats such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Control Point with additional modes being announced in the run up to the games launch.

Blacklight: Tango Down will also offer a great degree of customisation with players being able to alter and upgrade their character through experience gained on the battlefield. Weapons can also be customised as the player gains skills and experience points to unlock basic add-ons like sniper scopes as well as more complex enhancements.

If Ignition Entertainment and Zombie Studios manage to deliver everything they have set out to then Blacklight: Tango Down will be a truly great title. Keep an eye out here on Wedotech for further news on the game and its development.
