March 3, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

The PlayStation Network has been host to some memorable titles, with Fat Princess, WipeOut HD, Flower, the PixelJunk series, and more. Zombie Studios and Ignition Entertainment wish to add to that ever growing list by announcing Blacklight: Tango Down, a game promising to deliver “AAA-quality” material.

Blacklight: Tango Down is a shooter set in the future and will come in the form of a downloadable package. This action-packed game is currently in development by the infamous SAW creators, Zombie Studios. The title will be published this summer, by Ignition Entertainment.

Ajay Chadha, Head of Worldwide Publishing, Ignition Entertainment said:

We’re excited 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. 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

Zombie Studios’ Mark Long had high praise for Ignition:

We could not ask for a better partner than Ignition. Their digital distribution focus is visionary. It matches the aspirations we have for this franchise which already include a feature film and comic.

The fast-paced first person shooter will be based on a fictional universe called ‘Blacklight’ and will be taking full advantage of the Unreal Engine 3.
