Perfect World Entertainment unveiled today that its upcoming, next-generation first-person shooter (FPS), Blacklight Retribution, will be going into closed beta on November 10, 2011. Select players will be invited into the closed beta on day one, followed by additional waves of players in the following weeks.
Jared Gerritzen, Creative Director at Zombie Studios said:
“The development of Blacklight Retribution has been a hard earned labor of love and after receiving praise from both fans and media, we’re confident that our work will pay off. Closed beta is another step towards a game that we know people will have a great time playing.”
Andrew Brown, Executive Producer for Perfect World Entertainment added:
“We’ve been looking forward to getting Blacklight Retribution into the hands of gamers, so we’re excited to open the game up to thousands of players. We are confident that many gamers out there will be pleased and will finally have a real first person shooter experience in a F2P environment.”

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
