In a crowded FPS shooter genre, Section 8 was released last year with a lot of promise, but ultimately under achieved. It had some great innovations which included choosing where you spawn and dropping to the battle like a comet, but the gameplay didn't feel as tight as the top tier shooters. It's sequel, Section 8: Prejudice, plans to improve on all it predecessors problems while sporting a lower price.
Developer TimeGate will launch Section 8: Prejudice as a download-only title on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, for only $15.00. While other downloadable first-person shooters such as Battlefield 1943 have dropped at a similar price, TimeGate is stressing that Prejudice has all the content of a full-fledged retail title, and will include a 5-hour single-player campaign, 32-player online multiplayer, and 4-player co-op. The game will also feature full bot support, allowing all of the game modes to be enjoyed offline as well.
I think this is a great idea. With everyone still playing Black Ops and Reach, the best way to market is DLC. With the economy still recovering, I like that developers are taking chances and helping and helping our wallets. I'm very curious to see how this game shapes up. Keep up with VGP for more info.
