Perfect World Entertainment announced the official release of Blacklight: Retribution. The premiere first-person shooter has completed its extremely successful beta testing and is now a live free-to-play game.

Building upon Zombie Studios' predecessor, Tango Down, Blacklight: Retribution provides FPS enthusiasts with a new standard for free-to-play games by fully utilizing Unreal 3 technology and implementing Direct X 11 to provide cutting-edge graphics and gameplay.

Perfect World has also released an infographic detailing various in-game achievements made throughout the beta period. Some fun statistics from the infographic include:

• 14 Million Minutes Played
• 280 Million Shots Fired
• 13 Million Agents K.I.A.
• 494 Million Combat Points Spent
• 21 Million GP Earned
• 1.3 Million Headshots
• 300,000 Melee Kills
• 255639 Flags Capped
• 40 Countries Represented

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. Both the new game modes, Netwar and Siege, blend acute team strategy and crafty combat prowess in a heart-pounding race to annihilate or be annihilated.

I stopped playing the game after 2 days. Why? Just totally unbalanced. With real money (Zen), you can buy the most powerful weapon available, even if you're at level 1.

I think on the forum they said its tomorrow. They changed it or something, and there is a upcoming patch too. I hope it fixed the infinite loading screen bug, I literally can't play any matches with that. I can play tutorial, but what fun is jump around randomly tossing grenades at self fun? LOL....

I thought it was supposed to be tomorrow wasn't it MMOBomb? Or was it scheduled later and they finished earlier than expected? Anyway, glad it's up and running live now.
