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.
Available only to those who pre-ordered the game, the Captain's Armor can be worn by members of Section 8 and their adversaries, the Arm of Orion. The captain of a Section 8 squad wears the Imperial Eagle on his shoulder, while an Arm of Orion captain has the Lion of Orion emblazoned on the helmet of their gold-trimmed power armor.
