Blacklight: Retribution, Primal Carnage: Genesis announced for PlayStation 4

Free-to-play FPS and story-driven dinosaur game set for next-gen.

Blacklight: Retribution and Primal Carnage: Genesis are coming to PlayStation 4, Sony has announced at its Game Developers Conference independent games event, PlayStation Indie Game Arcade.

A sequel to Blacklight: Tango Down, which launched on PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and PC in 2010, Blacklight: Retribution is a futuristic free-to-play first-person shooter with over one million players on PC. Developer Zombie Studios aims to bring “a new experience” and “further evolution” of the shooter to PlayStation 4.

And different from last year’s Primal Carnage on PC, which was a class-based multiplayer game, Primal Carnage: Genesis on PlayStation 4 is an Unreal Engine 4-powered, “story driven, episodic single player adventure” set in a world where dinosaurs have been brought back to life. Developer Lukewarm Media “aims to resurrect the immersive dinosaur first-person experience that people have been waiting for.”

Sony has said it recently “enhanced” the services available to third-party publishers and developers with a new “streamlined and faster” Global Product Proposal process for submitting games, which means Sony “can offer more resources and support to publishers and developers than ever before.” Developers can find out more here.
