Section 8: Prejudice Drops into PSN July 26th With Extra Weight

Bryan Perez's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, TimeGate Studios

It’s been a long time coming, but Dropping, Jetpacks, Overdriving, Deployables, and every other kick-ass Section 8: Prejudice feature are making their way to the PlayStation Network starting July 26th in North America for only $14.99 and July 27th for our European friends for £12,99. While it was a difficult decision to delay the PS3 release for three months, we knew it would be worth the wait in order to take the time to optimize the game for the platform. We’ve also added new content to the PS3 version, including two additional multiplayer game modes, Assault and Skirmish, as well as exclusive content for PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you’re not a PlayStation Plus member, no worries, we have some free content for you too!

  • For the first week, anyone who purchases Section 8: Prejudice on the PlayStation Network will receive the Blitz Armor Pack and Overdrive Map Pack for free! This includes two armor skins, early unlocks, and two additional multiplayer maps.
  • Free Exclusive In-Game Hunter armor for all PlayStation®Plus subscribers
  • The first 1000 PlayStation Plus subscribers to purchase Section 8: Prejudice will receive the exclusive in-game Hunter Armor as well as a free copy of the original Section 8. a free copy of the original Section 8 via *XMB message
    *Free game offer ends 8/2/11, original Section 8 game will be sent out via XMB message by 8/12/11.

Section 8: Prejudice

Of course, all the free content we are offering during launch week is just a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of content in the base game. Section 8: Prejudice features a five-hour story-driven campaign, four multiplayer game modes (all of which offer offline bot support), Dynamic Combat Missions, highly customizable weapon and equipment loadouts, deep level progression and unlockable content systems, and last but not least, jetpacks (I probably should have put that at the top of the list). Below is a more detailed look at the various game modes PS3 players will encounter in Section 8: Prejudice.

Section 8: Prejudice

Campaign: The campaign follows 8th Armored Infantry, or Section 8, as they defend the Earth against the tyrannical Arm of Orion. In the campaign, you play as Captain Alexander Corde, the leader of an elite group of soldiers, and throughout the campaign you learn more about Alexander Corde, Section 8, and the mysterious Arm of Orion.

Conquest: Conquest is a multiplayer mode where you and up to 32 players play as either 8th Armored Infantry or the Arm of Orion and you fight for control of the battlefield. Each team competes to complete objectives and score Victory Points (VP). When one team earns enough VP to meet the Victory Point goal, they are victorious and the enemy team is defeated.

To earn victory points, players must capture and hold control points. Victory Points are awarded at fixed intervals for each Control Point your team holds. Teams can also earn Victory Points by completing Dynamic Combat Missions (DCMs). There are a number of DCMs that occur during a match. Successful completion of a DCM provides significant Victory Points that can turn the tide of battle.

Skirmish (NEW!): Similar to Conquest, Skirmish is a multiplayer mode where you and up to 32 players compete in a Team-versus-team death match where Control Points cannot be captured and Victory Points are awarded for kills and completed Dynamic Combat Missions.

Assault: Assault is a team-versus-team game mode where teams race to capture all Control Points in the fastest time. While in the attack round, players must work together to capture all control points. During the defense round, players defend their bases for as long as possible. It’s a fast-paced mode that encourages close cooperation with your team and unwavering focus on the goal of capturing or defending the base!

Swarm: In Swarm, you and three other friends defend a single Control Point against an overwhelming number of computer-controlled Arm of Orion enemy units. To attain victory, your team must protect the Control Point from being captured by the enemy before the 15 minute time limit is reached.

Swarm Mode consists of a limited number of enemy waves. As soon as you capture the neutral Control Point, the first wave begins. Every five minutes, an Airstrike will bombard the enemy, eliminating them until the next wave begins.

Again, we’d like to extend a huge thank you to the PlayStation community for patiently waiting for Section 8: Prejudice. We are extremely excited to share this game with everyone, and hope that players enjoy all the free content!

Gotta say, I never played the original, but this looks pretty sweet! I think I’m going to give it a try. And for 15 buck this really does sound like a steal of a deal!

Why isn’t there a space or sci-fi themed strategy game? Real time, turn based or otherwise.

Hey guys, we have actually decided to give the Hunter Armor to all PlayStation®Plus members. If you are a PlayStation®Plus, when you launch the game, the armor will unlock.

Heavenly_king said:

I suppose campaign refers to a full fledged single player experience?? or is it like the single player in Unreal Tournament 3??? (multiplayer missions/scenarios/objectives/mechanics that are not related to the story that is driving it)

    We have a full fledged single player experience with 8 campaign missions telling the story of Section 8 and the Arm of Orion. You can also play all of our multiplayer modes offline with bots.

Heavenly_king said:

the games look like fun, but I mostly play SP mode in my games; that is why I want to know how the campaign plays.
