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.

A mission! Should you choose to accept it, this internet will self-destruct in five seconds, etc etc. Go and get the Section 8 beta from Fileplanet, and find out what is a-happenin’ in this multiplayer sci-fi shooter. Blues reports that even this simple task won’t be made too easy, as “this event is a staggered beta with keys distributed first come, first served with limited access. Beta keys will be distributed on a regular schedule.” Sounds limited.
And yet, if successful, you will earn some kind of imaginary badge from the RPS Downloading And Playing Academy Of Testing Games That Are Not Finished Yet. Go!

Timegate Studios, they of Kohan II and the most recent F.E.A.R. expansion, are working on a brand new FPS. It’s called Section 8, it’s entirely their own IP, and they’re very, very excited about it. Should we share in their enthusiasm?
