Outspark Announces Action-Packed First-Person Shooter Blackshot

SAN FRANCISCO - July 24, 2008 Outspark today announced the newest addition to its virtual playground: Blackshot. A militaristic first-person shooter loaded with powerful weapons, lifelike characters and gritty environments, Blackshot’s intense multiplayer action will appeal to gamers of all skill levels. Outspark continues to aggressively build out its rich portfolio of free-to-play games, and is bringing its community of nearly three million gamers yet another exciting and immersive title with Blackshot.

Gamers can view the game trailer now and register for the upcoming closed beta at www.playblackshot.com.

With the world in a state of chaos and powerful nations competing for money and resources, Blackshot players must take on the role of a mercenary and make a name for themselves in the game’s dangerous environments. Aspiring soldiers of fortune can enter the Blackshot war zone later this summer, when the game makes its worldwide debut.

“We’re thrilled to add an innovative, free-to-play FPS game to our lineup,” said Susan Choe, founder and CEO of Outspark.“Blackshot offers fast-paced action for casual gamers interested in a quick shootout, while hardcore players will love innovative features like the game’s player-versus-environment mode.”

Outspark will release additional details about Blackshot in the coming weeks.
