Anyone can download and begin playing Blacklight: Retribution by visiting: www.playblacklight.com

"The Blacklight launch is a great achievement and testament to all the hard work from the passionate and talented people at Zombie Studios and Perfect World Entertainment," said Kelly Dickinson, Product Manager, Perfect World Entertainment. "Even though it's free, Blacklight is a technologically advanced, polished, fast-paced first-person shooter with production values that compete with the best the genre has to offer and we are very proud of it."

Blacklight: Retribution fans can expect to strap on their combat helmets tighter than ever before with two upcoming game modes and supporting maps going live shortly after launch. Capture, control and hold areas of a highly hazardous oil rig and pilot a Scorpion Tank through a twisting path of carnage in an experimental weapons facility.
