Blacklight: Retribution (finally) comes to Steam

Much like Tribes: Ascend last week, this week is Zombie, Inc.’s Blacklight: Retribution, the free-to-play sequel to Blacklight: Tango Down. Also like Tribes: Ascend, there is also a DLC Starter Pack which gives you some boosters to get started, much earlier in the game as everything is progression based or requires microtransactions on your end.


The game is multiplayer only, but comes with Steam Achievements. Get it for yourself, now:

Note: If you get a Subscription error while installing the game, restart Steam and that should fix it
