Dubstep Zombies: Blacklight Retribution Gets New Onslaught Mode
There seems to be some unspoken code about free-to-play shooters and zombie modes. It seems as though 9 times out of 10 a free-to-play shooter offers some sort of cooperative or versus zombie mode. Until recently Blacklight: Retribution had sidestepped the zombie scourge (chalk it up to good hygiene and futuristic medicine), but with the announcement of Retribution's latest expansion called Onslaught it seems as though even the future isn't safe from the zombie epidemic.
The latest expansion adds a new mode by the same name which has four players joining forces to battle huge waves of sprinting zombies. The mode has a very "CoD" Zombies vibe to it, with players sticking together to fend off ever increasing waves of zombies. The update also adds three other new game modes including Search and Destroy, Last Man Standing, and Last Team Standing. The new modes aren't so much new as they are new additions to Blacklight.
There are also three new maps available, with the map Centre exclusive to the new Onslaught Mode while Safehold and Metro are available for most competitive game modes. The update also adds new weapons and a variety of balance changes. All combined the update is the largest yet for Blacklight. The new content is available to download now and you can check out the accompanying trailer above. A full breakdown of the new update can be found here.
