Section 8: Prejudice Releasing on PSN Tomorrow

TimeGate’s Huge, $15 Dollar Downloadable Shooter Continues to Grow as PlayStation®Network Version Approaches. More details after the jump.

TimeGate Studios continues to expand Section 8®: Prejudice™, breaking numerous laws of physics to jam more content into what is already a ridiculously value-packed offering. One of the year’s most acclaimed shooters gets even bigger in July with the announcement of the new Frontier Colonies Map Pack for the PC and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for only 320 Microsoft Points ($3.99).  If that weren’t enough, TimeGate plans to unleash the new multiplayer Skirmish mode for Xbox LIVE Arcade, PC, and the PlayStation®Network later this month for the low price of $0!

The upcoming Frontier Colonies Map Pack includes two new maps for you to fight over, both on and offline. Desolation is a parched desert world haunted by the remains of a failed colonization attempt. Overseer is home to military facilities overlooking a habitable forest valley. Both maps are playable for all multiplayer game modes, including Conquest, Swarm, Assault, and the soon to be released Skirmish mode.

Touted by TimeGate’s game testers as “oh man, so awesome,” the new Skirmish mode pits the 8th Armored Infantry against the Arm of Orion in a team death match with a twist. Victory Points are awarded for kills and completed missions. Control Points cannot be captured or hacked in this game mode, though, so you’ll need to adjust your gameplay tactics.

The Frontier Colonies Map Pack will be available  on PC for $3.99 starting July 27.

The PlayStation Blog has also announced extra perks for PS3 owners. 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, they 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
