Blacklight Retribution Launch

Perfect World Entertainment announces that Blacklight Retribution is now out of beta, and the launch version of Zombie Studios' free-to-play online shooter is now live. They follow the news with word on plans for the first post-beta content update: "Blacklight: Retribution fans can expect to strap on their combat helmets tighter than ever before with two upcoming game modes and supporting maps going live shortly after launch. Capture, control and hold areas of a highly hazardous oil rig and pilot a Scorpion Tank through a twisting path of carnage in an experimental weapons facility. Both the new game modes, Netwar and Siege, blend acute team strategy and crafty combat prowess in a heart-pounding race to annihilate or be annihilated."

Despite their claims that it is not pay-to-win, the method for unlocking guns, etc... is entirely just that.

You can unlock them by earning points during multiplayer, but, the gain is so absurdly slow, that you're probably looking at no less than 30-40 full rounds played just to unlock a single gun customization. Then more to get a single attachment, etc...

I thought the first Blacklight was fun enough (got it during the $1 sale Microsoft had back when), but, this one is not remotely worth the time investment if you don't want to just shovel cash out. Very disappointing.
