Blacklight: Retribution Beta Rewards
Blacklight: Retribution from Zombie Studios is a fast-paced, action packed first person shooter thats been in Beta on the PS4 since it’s release. A free download via PSN, the game allows players to take advantage of a near limitless customization system for weapons and add-ons/boosters for your loadout. The system does rely on a micro-transaction system, using either GP (In-Game currency) or Z-Coins (Zombie coins, or real currency). 1 Z-Coin = 1 cent, so something that’s 100 Z-Coins is $1.00. However, not to discourage new people to the game, the in-game currency unlocks items for limited periods of time (several days at a time depending on the item) so that you can test out weapon systems with in-game currency and then if you want to, purchase that perfect set-up via Z-Coins. Or simply keep using in-game currency and constantly try new load outs.
Z-Coins are purchasable via the PSN Store, and permanently unlock in-game items for your character. Many people were concerned about what will happen to player levels, unlocked items, and especially purchased items (either in-game or Z-Coins) once the game comes out of beta.
Fear not, as Zombie Studios has pledged that not only will you get to keep any and all unlocks and purchases while in-beta, but you’ll also get back any Z-Coins that you’ve purchased in the game, to upgrade your arsenal even further. So if you spend $10 in Z-Coins, when the game comes out of beta you’ll get $10 worth of Z-Coins to spend again. Pretty sweet deal, and clearly shows the dedication Zombie Studios has for their fans. A sweet reward for those who participate in the beta, and an awesome way to double up on your arsenal if you’re already a fan of the game.
