TimeGate holds Section 8: Prejudice

Developer announces full-fledged sequel to last year's multiplatform, multiplayer-focused first-person shooter, due out in 2011.

In antiquated military parlance, one Section 8 would end a career for good. These days, one Section 8 is more likely to be viewed as "a good start."

TimeGate will discharge Section 8: Prejudice on the gaming public next year.

TimeGate Studios certainly believes so, as the developer today announced a full-fledged sequel to its 2009 sci-fi first-person shooter, Section 8. The follow-up, dubbed Section 8: Prejudice, is expected to arrive next year. No platforms or publishers have yet been announced, though a teaser trailer (below) did give fans some footage to comb through for clues.

The original Section 8 launched just over a year ago on the PC and Xbox 360 to generally positive reviews and received a PlayStation 3 port in March. The shooter eschewed convention by merging the genre-standard match types like escort missions and capture the flag into a single Conquest mode that could have multiple team-based objectives running at the same time. The game also featured a distinctive alternative to respawning, with players dropping from orbit and guiding themselves to their desired location on the map as they fell.

Wait, does this game even deserve a sequel? I didn't even think the first game did that well...

Geez, a sequel already? I didn't think Section 8 even did that well in sales. Adequate, but nothing spectacular. Kindof like the gameplay itself.

@Lasiesman17, Loved the first couple of PC Tribes games. I thought the series kind of went off the rails eventually (at about the time the console versions started coming out).

@IceJester45 good opinion. :) lol. ow.. and Tribes series, bring back memories. :?

@Ladiesman17, Basically. Section 8 tries really hard to ape Halo and Tribes. Section 8 is more or less the videogame counterpart of an Asylum film (Snakes on a Train, Transmorphers, The Day the World Stopped).

Section 8 was terrible. I don't understand some articles being included as news.

Well... if the multiplayer is close enough to Tribes I'll consider it.

The original Section 8 was okay but I'm not interested in a sequel. The story was completely forgettable and story mode was over way too quick but maybe that was a good thing and multiplayer was geared towards team engagements.

never played the full game of the first on but I played the demo for it and it was pretty cool and it seemed interesting cause of the new feel to the hole tactical part of the game, and where i buy my games it's a little expensive as a used title and new. but I'm gonna buy this one when I get a chance.

Looks like it got mixed reviews to me. I've never played it, so I don't know. It's definitely not Halo, that's for sure. Looking at other critic reviews, the games was pretty average. [url]http://www.gamerankings.com/ps3/989521-section-8/index.html[/url] I doubt I'll bother with the sequel. I'm kind of surprised they even made a sequel.

I remember when this game went down to, like, 10 bucks on PSN. It still sucked.

I bought the game and loved it, in fact, all of my friends who bought it loved it. The multilayer was new and inventive and a breath of fresh air after Call of Duty 5000. I don't know where the bad opinions come from.

I was really pissed when I bought that game, I really hate it. In fact, I don't know anyone that likes it. It doesn't do anything. Even the single campaign feels like a bad multiplayer game, and I hate the feel of MP games... they are all the same for the most part..."tag, your out"...... save the money and come up with a new IP please.

The problem was the basic shooting was sub-par and the visuals looked murky like Frontlines Fuel of War. There was some good idea's there and the server system was great. To be honest the time when it was launched was a poor choice. And thet should have made the armour less powerful.

Why would you waste time and money on a game that no one really liked or played? The demo was terrible. Felt like a late 90's PC FPS.

I hate the game. It just doesn't suit my taste. It took too long to kill. :(

It's always nice to see game companies willing to rework games that didn't really do so well the first time. I wasn't a fan of it, though, the first time around, but maybe I'll give it a second chance.

The first was one of the better games of 2009 so I'm looking foreword to this.

Awesome. I actually really like the first one. The multiplayer compenent was really fresh, and the auto aim, while overall lessening the fps skill in the game, added a small tactical depth as to usage of the auto aim + which boosts you pick. This is good news imo.

hmm i hope they do the jetpack system a little better (5 sec flytime for like 5min recharge time :/) but i did like the original section 8. bought it this past summer and enjoyed. More maps would be nice too...

Section 8 had a good idea but the design wasn't very good, personally i liked the heavy vehicles and all that massive firepower of them

Section 8 wasn't too bad at all, but it wasn't a shocker either. Hopefully this one will improve on the formula.

Section 8 wasnt a astonishing game BUT it created a strong foundation to build on, if done correctly this game could be great

This reminds me a little of halo, but I'm ok with that. It looks promising.
