Section 8: Prejudice is Coming Early 2011, Will Be Downloadable Only

Some of you may have played TimeGate’s sci-fi shooter, Section 8, and found it to be surprisingly fun. While the game never interested me with its generic art style, there’s apparently a consistent cult following for the game, even to this day.  So it’s no surprise then that TimeGate is releasing a sequel for the game, titled Section 8: Prejudice.

What is surprising, is that it’ll be downloadable only on Xbox Live, PSN, and the PC, and instead of being the standard retail price, it’ll be sold for a very manageable $14.99, or 1200 Microsoft Points.

Prejudice will feature a five-hour single player campaign, along with multiplayer for up to 32 players and a 4-player co-op mode called Swarm.

This is some smart marketing on TimeGate’s part, as now I want to actually check out the original Section 8 to see if it really is sequelworthy.  Section 8: Prejudice hits the 360, PS3, and PC in early 2011; check out the official site for more info.
