    Now available on Steam.

    I've played a few hours of it, and it feels a lot like its predecessor, except with a few changes.
    -Call-ins
    -Point based rewards system
    -Free to play now

    I think I like Tribes' F2P system more, but it's still a decent romp if you want some of that pseudo-tactical shooter cheese with a cyberpunk twist.

    I think I tried this a while back. It's basically pay2win and the items you buy only last for a limited time. Fuck that shit.

    Yeah... that's a really stupid thing about Blacklight. Timed purchases.

    Yeah and it is something that free to play games should steer clear of. That Dust 514 game is also doing something similar. Buy your armor and if you get shot too many times you will have to buy more.

    All it is is just temptation for suckers who have more money than brains, but it is going to give other developers wrong ideas.

    Played it before steam.

    Resumed to this:

    Simply put, this game is somewhat "fun" when you don't get competitive. Something that is impossible to do past a specific stage.
