Blacklight: Retribution beta users keep their progress, purchases

People who have been playing the Blacklight: Retribution beta will be able to retain their progress and purchases when developer Zombie Studios brings the free-to-play first-person shooter out of beta, the studio announced today.

Zombie won't reset the character progress that players have made in the beta, which includes anything they've unlocked. Players won't lose anything they've bought, whether with GP (in-game currency) or ZCoins (currency purchased with real money). In addition, Zombie will refund players any ZCoins they've spent in the beta, so users will be able to spend them again.

"We here at Zombie Studios [...] feel this is a great way to give thanks to those Agents that have been helping us by playing and commenting on the beta," said Kael Hammond, an associate producer at Zombie, in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

Zombie has not yet said when it plans to bring Blacklight: Retribution out of beta. The free-to-play title is available for download on PlayStation 4 from the PlayStation Store.
