BlackShot is dead! Long live BlackShot!
BlackShot: Revolution is the follow-up to Vertigo Games' free-to-play, mercenary-based shooter BlackShot. It's available for download now via the website and also has a Steam page with the promise of a launch in August.
A press release for Revolution says that it "fully emphasizes ‘play-to-win’, rather than the ‘pay-to-win’ attitude often found in similar free-to-play games" -- which doesn't include its previous incarnation, I'm sure. Other bullet-point features include a "replacement of weapon usage timers with new permanent items and playtime-focused ‘Durability’ system" and a redesigned UI and storefront, as well as a "Vastly expanded" character customization system.
If you're a BlackShot player looking to hop into BlackShot: Revolution, you might also be eligible for a Veteran Supply Package, with goodies based on your service record in BlackShot. The requirements and rewards are spelled out on the website, which already makes BlackShot's veteran rewards program better than Defiance 2050's.
