Blacklight: Tango Down Gets Patched

UTV Ignition has released a patch for Blacklight: Tango Down today, addressing a range of gameplay issues as well as adding a few new features to boot.

"The entire team took fan feedback and critique to heart and constructed the update to specifically address their concerns," said Jared Gerritzen, Lead Designer at Zombie Studios. "As one of the summer’s top XBLA downloads, we’re really happy with the way fans have been enjoying the game, and we’ll continue to make sure players are having the best online experience possible."

The new Blacklight patch will fix the game's spawning issues, round times, matchmaking and a few other issues based on fan feedback, and will also reset the timer on the trial version to allow latecomers to sample the game anew.

So, if you were finding yourself frustrated by spawn campers, the update increases spawn invincibility time to put a stop to cheap players spawn killing. Matchmaking has also been made faster to find and get you into a game quicker.

Blacklight: Tango Down is available on the Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points.

Bloody brilliant. BUT, I hope this includes the glitched 'Gearhead' achievement patch. If I don't get the full 200G on this game just because they can't be arsed to fix it; I will rage. But good to see they've brought it out. I even shouted 'yes' at this article ;D.

@5 Why not? This game is quite tame, it got a T rating over here in the US and from what I played there's barely any blood...

This game was decent, but the fact you cant have players join mid-match is still making me not want to play it. At all..

The matches degrade into spawn camping because the maps are too small and because one team can't keep up with the other team so they just leave and the two people still there can't push back.

Agree with #20. I hate waiting for a match to start and then when it does people quit. I regret buying this game and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

@10 and 17 - It wasn't because of gore, as there is no offline component, and they can't classify online material it effectively got the ol' RC.

Sucks :(

No mention of allowing people to join games in progress; one of the games many flaws.

@26: So you're saying that games with online play only can't be classified in Australia? That's weird. What's the reason for that? It doesn't make sense to me.

They reseted the timer, but I'm still getting spawn camped. Sometimes I instantly die when these pricks chuck over a grenade, and literally as I spawn I go back into spawn. I'm not lying, I honestly don't think they fixed the spawn system at all.

@28 - You know how at the start of games they have that "Online interactions are not classified" type message? Apparently the OFLC has a policy that you can't digitally distribute games with only online portions as they can not classify it and/or monitor who is buying the game like they can over the counter (the key word here is digitally distribute though, which is why MAG still made it over here)

At least that is how it is to the best of my knowledge. Stupid fucking OFLC -__-

@30: I read that somewhere too, but it's total BS. Battlefield 1943 was released here with no problems.

According to a story on Kotaku, Blacklight: Tango Down was never even submitted to the Classification Board.

But then on July 21, they ran another story saying that Ignition Entertainment was now going to submit the game for classification.

Thank God! Are they finally going to fix the random bullshit too? Like me clearly knifing a guy in the head before even knows I'm there and I still get killed. The kills are so random that it makes Nier look linear.
