IGNITION ENTERTAINMENT UNVEILS NEW HYPER REALITY VISOR GAMEPLAY VIDEO FOR BLACKLIGHT: TANGO DOWN

Glendale, CA—June 7th, 2010—Giving gamers an in-depth look into the summer’s most anticipated shooter, Ignition Entertainment today released a brand-new gameplay video showing off Blacklight: Tango Down’s Hyper Reality Visor (HRV). As one of the most powerful tools in the soldier’s arsenal, the HRV is based on science fact rather than science fiction, and makes Blacklight: Tango Down a shooter like no other. The HRV is an advanced imaging system in the player’s Heads up Display that detects nearby enemy and friendly forces and relays the information back to players, giving them immediate battlefield intelligence. Based on real-life applications, the HRV uses cell phone towers and satellites to detect nearby enemy and friendly forces and identifies nearby objectives including health and ammo stations.

In the game, members of Blacklight and The Order are equipped with the HRV, offering players on both sides a type of augmented reality for an intense and dynamic experience. However, gamers have to act fast when using the HRV, as they are unable to shoot while it is engaged. This tool can also be extremely helpful after respawning, allowing players to quickly get back into the multiplayer action and locate a recent killer for a rapid revenge.

ABOUT BLACKLIGHT: TANGO DOWN

Available this summer on XBLA, PSN, and PC, Blacklight: Tango Down is a fast-paced, action-oriented first-person shooter that marks the first release of what will be a multi-platform entertainment franchise. Beyond the video game, a Blacklight feature film from Twentieth Century Fox and comic book series are currently in development. Designed to bring a fun, absorbing, and high quality AAA multiplayer experience to DLG venues, the game exists in a future between contemporary and sci-fi shooters– part Blade Runner and part Call of Duty.

Developed by Zombie Studios, Blacklight: Tango Down takes place 25 years into the future. The player takes control of an elite covert ops team that is sent after missing American Colonel Klein and his personal Blacklight team. The game will feature four single player/co-op levels that support up to four players at once, 12 multiplayer maps, seven game types and literally millions of weapons customization combinations. As the team advances through regions that consist of old world architecture over laden with ubiquitous modern holographic advertising, the trigger based dynamic AI offers an intense and varied experience every time the game is played.
