PlayStation 4 Getting Free-To-Play Shooter Blacklight: Retribution

One of the biggest pieces of news to come from Sony’s PlayStation 4 reveal that went down back in February was that the console would sport a much friendlier architecture. They’re moving to what’s called x86, and that’s a standard for PC games development.

The hope was that more developers would come to the platform now that it was easier to build for. That move seems to be in the process of paying off, as Zombie Studios have announced that their free-to-play shooter is making the jump to the PlayStation 4.

Blacklight: Retribution will bring its 10 maps and nine multiplayer game modes to the PlayStation 4. We assume it will also bring the microtransactions that keep food on the collective table of Zombie Studios. The title’s launch date has not been announced.

Of course, if you’re gaming PC is up to snuff, you can download and play¬†Blacklight: Retribution right this second on Steam. It released on that platform back in July of 2012.

Aside from the presence of a solid shooter on Sony’s next platform, this news also indicates that the PlayStation 4 will definitely be a bastion for free-to-play offerings. The free-to-play genre has been taking the PC gaming world by storm for a while now.
