Zombie Studios has done an amazing job showing the gaming community that free to play shooters don't have to be sub par quality. Blacklight Retribution, along with Tribes: Ascend, has illustrated that studios can build AAA-quality shooters without attaching $60 price tags.
Now, the studio has unveiled a brand new game mode for Blacklight Retribution called Netwar. This game mode features one of the largest Blacklight maps to date, and leans heavily on team actions and strategy. In Netwar, players battle to control sections on the map and also to capture a flag that spawns in the middle of the map. The only way you can capture that flag, however, is to control at least one of the four capture points on the map.
To add a little twist to the familiar Domination-style gameplay, capture points that are left unattended will slowly revert back to a neutral state, meaning that players will need to not only capture these points, but actively police them lest they revert out of their possession.
Capturing the flag and holding these control areas on the map add to your team's points, and the first side to reach a set point limit takes the match. Teamwork and solid tactics will prove essential if you hope to stand a chance in Netwar. Check out some screenshots of the game mode in action, below!
