Section 8: Prejudice $15, Download Only


We knew battlesuit drop-pod extravaganza Section 8 was getting a sequel entitled Section 8: Prejudice with plenty of new content. What developers TimeGate have announced today is that when the title released in Q1 2011 it’ll be download-only and will cost a mere $15, which actually makes it the second download-only multiplayer FPS coming out in that quarter with that price bracket together with contemporary terrain-destruction showcase Breach. Seems more of people want a slice of the invisible pie that was revealed after Battlefield 1943 was such a hit. Mm, invisible pie. A completely awesome trailer awaits below. How awesome? Have a look, and take these protective goggles.

EDIT: Celebrating the announcement, TimeGate have put together a video re-eneacting what I guess they imagine will be everybody’s response. I can only approve of this level of positivity.

Section 8: Prejudice Multiplayer Beta Sign Up

I have to say I rather enjoyed Section 8, despite the game lacking a long term appeal. It was full of fun features, such as falling from the sky and robots smacking each other, and those things made it one of those games that it was great to arse about in for a couple of weeks, without it ever really getting its hooks in. I wasn’t sorry that I played it, but it was rather quickly forgotten, too. Anyway, it seems like Timegate haven’t forgotten about it, because there’s sequel of sorts on the way – Prejudice – and the multiplayer beta sign ups for that are now open. I’m probably going to be taking a look at this, if just to see how the original game has evolved. Also, you’ll be pleased to hear, the game is using “the enhanced Games for Windows-LIVE integration that includes streamlined matchmaking and improved server browsing.” Yaaaaaaaaay.

Just Dropping In: Section 8 – Prejudice

What is war good for? Men whose job it is to put fiery backgrounds on things.
TimeGate have released a trailer for their sequel to Section 8, Prejudice, and you can take a look at that below. Seems like they missed a trick by not calling it Section 9, but who am I to judge the naming exploits of the wider world when I work for a site called Rock, Paper, Shotgun? The trailer shows some lavish new maps, lots more thunderous robo-biff, including the big bots throwing each other about, and dudes getting stabbed. So I think we can expect more of the same only, as the trailer insinuates, it might have evolved a bit.
