TimeGate Settles 'Section 8' (X360/PC) Lawsuit With Paramount

by Rainier on April 22, 2009 @ 5:12 p.m. PDT

Section 8 is a futuristic first person shooter that brings strategy and tactics to the genre in a game where players can modify the battlefield on the fly. In Section 8 you are part of an elite infantry squad with a penchant for taking on suicide missions that no one else will tackle.

On the war-torn planets of tomorrow, mankind's greatest battle is about to begin. With its frontier colonies devastated by a growing insurrection, Earth dispatches the elite 8th Armoured Infantry (nicknamed "Section 8") to repel the coming onslaught.

The nickname refers to a discharge from an old United States military regulation for reason of being mentally unfit for service. The near-suicidal missions this division volunteers for brands them as insane by all other military units.

Section 8 deploys directly into battle from their orbital dropships, utilizing the most advanced arsenal of military hardware known to man. Their mission: to scout and secure difficult objectives, and smash the enemy defences in lightning-quick assaults.

Section 8 is an intense first-person shooter that allows players to dynamically alter the flow of combat as they see fit. Employing tactical assets and on-demand vehicle deliveries, players are given unprecedented strategic control over epic sci-fi battlefields.

Features:

  • Customize your loadouts like no other FPS
  • Use Burn-In spawning to drop into the action from 15,000 feet
  • Transform the battlefield with tactical assets and vehicle drops
  • Battle across epic sci-fi landscapes
  • Adapt to ever-evolving team, squad, and player strategies

So get ready to drop, Trooper! The war begins on Xbox 360 and the PC in Q3 2009.
