Blacklight: Retribution Exits Beta With Free Goodies For PS Plus Members

Blacklight: Retribution from Zombie Studios has been in beta on the PlayStation 4 since the console’s November 15, 2013, launch. The free-to-play game is coming out of testing and into full release tomorrow, and there’s something in it for PlayStation Plus members.

In addition to new maps, a weapon, and some improvements to streaming capabilities available in the full release, Zombie Studios is offering a bundle of items to get players going. The PlayStation Plus Starter Pack comes with a Burstfire SMG, a Revival Injector, and 250 ZCoins (in-game currency). The bundles will be delivered automatically.

If you purchased any ZCoins during beta, they will be refunded to you in the coming weeks. All progress will carry over from the beta, though. Trophies are included now, with 20 available at launch (and more coming later).

Our Take
I played a bit of Blacklight Retribution when I first got my PS4. I wasn’t prepared to spend any money on it at the time, but I’m willing to give it another go once it exits beta tomorrow.
