Blacklight: Retribution now available on Steam with Portal-themed weapon tags

Perfect World Entertainment announced today that Blacklight: Retribution has officially launched on Steam. The F2P shooter has received high marks from critics thus far, and is part of a new wave of games that are helping to redefine the formerly shoddy reputation of F2P.

Blacklight: Retribution first launched back in April, and is now coming to Steam for the first time. As an incentive for all the new players that will doubtlessly be exposed to BL:R through Steam, Perfect World is offering a Portal-themed weapon tag as a free gift to anyone who reaches level 5.

Weapon tags are small customization options for weapon loadouts in BL:R. They're essentially like those little ornaments that people hang on their rearview mirrors. The tags look like little orange portals that hang on your gun.

"We're excited to make Blacklight: Retribution available to all the PC gamers using Steam," said Clifton Chu, Product Manager at Perfect World Entertainment. "The level of competition is going to be raised from intense to cut-throat with the influx of new Steam players." Learn more on the official site.

    I hate the fact that I can't get the Portal gun because I started playing before the game was released on steam.

    I was actually surprised how good this game was when I started reading about it, and watching TotalBiscuit's WTF of it. I really like customization, and the stupid amount of numbers for each part of your gun(s) and options available to you in BL: R is incredible. TB goes over the rental system, which is actually pretty cool. Look it up on YouTube. And I HATED BL: Tango Down on XBLA. So I'm actually glad they improved the sequel and made it more fun to play. It's not radically different from any other FPS, but I find it just very fun to play.
