Section 8: Prejudice Drops Into PSN With Some Extra Weight

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 27th 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.
  • 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.

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!

I’d really need to try a demo before buying this, it looks pretty good but its too high a price to gamble on.

Any day one discounts for plus members?
Anyway, had my eye on this one for a while now, played the Xbox version a while back and loved it. Hope I make the first 1000 so I can play the original. Also: Free maps!

Awesome stuff! i will be one of the first 1000 to buy it on the 27th ;)

danielmccue 13 July, 2011 @ 9:33 pm   4

awesome i’ll be one of the first to buy it.

First 1,000 subscribers? I’m always in the first of everything. Definite buy for me (knew I held off the 360 version for a reason).

 
KC-alpha-14 13 July, 2011 @ 10:05 pm   6

First 1000? You’ve got to be quick on the draw for that!

Have this on the 360 and was fantastic. However I got rid of the 360 so would love to get back into this!

Is this like Tribes 2 minus the vehicles?
Do the first 1000 buyers = all countries? because NZ’s store is usually updated late (slackers).

For the PlayStation Plus offer, is this the first 1000 purchases worldwide, per region (SCEA, SCEE, etc..) or per store (UK, NZ, German, etc..)?

Looks pretty neat, but I’ll really need a demo to help me decide – especially at that price.

And incidentally, the demo should come before any Plus discounts run out (except 1-day deals of course), unlike the current trend of only releasing the demos once any discounts have expired, which I must say is an extremely cynical and insulting ploy indeed.

@biotec It’s worth the money mate. I bought it on 360 during the PSN Downtime cause i fancied something to play online and i too was a bit skeptical but for the amount of content in the game it’s a bargain. Sure story is meh but it’s a full on Single Player Campaign which is quite a fun open one and a length that rivals and in some cases surpasses full retail ones. Ontop of that you got a Horde Mode and then the Online Competitive Mode and a fair few hours to be had in those. Well worth it. Content wise it is a full game big publishers would be charging you £40 for, just dosen’t have the fancy production but still looks darn good for a download.

 

Awesome this is really stuff that makes you buy things day 1. More devolepers should do like this.

yarnboy 14 July, 2011 @ 9:30 am   13

If anyone is wondering why you should buy this, look up a video on youtube where you spawn. It almost makes you look forward to dying because then you get to spawn again.

Mr__Stig 14 July, 2011 @ 9:54 am   14

Awesome cant wait for this. I have platinum trophy on the 1st and loved it. Cant wait 2 see the new trophy list for it.

Quite a high price for a PSN title considering its £9.99 for PC on steam and 3 months late.

 
Pacman_Ownage 14 July, 2011 @ 3:23 pm   16

I agree with the price being a bit high…

…but I am still incredibly tempted to buy it…

offline bots <3

 
SnakeAttak 15 July, 2011 @ 8:42 pm   17

Sorry SCEE, but how does $15 = £12.99???

$15 is equal to just over £9. Sort it out!

 
SCOTCHmfCHIEF 20 July, 2011 @ 11:20 am   18

£12.99 is to high a price i dont get it sounds very cheap to me.its a around 1 quarter what you would pay when buying from any game shops, ill be in the first thousand hopefully just need to find exactly what time itll be available to buy in the store.
