When Section 8: Prejudice launches early next year, developer TimeGate Studios is hoping to give gamers shell shock without the sticker shock. Today the Sugar Land, Texas-based developer and publisher announced that the first-person shooter will launch as a $15 (1,200 Microsoft point) downloadable title early next year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

The moral of Prejudice might be, "Don't judge a book by its power armor, no matter how ostentatious its eagle-themed epaulets."

The original Section 8 was a full-priced retail release for the Xbox 360 and PC when it launched in September of 2009. (It received a downloadable PS3 port earlier this year.) The game eschewed convention by merging 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.

Prejudice will feature online multiplayer modes with up to 32 players, as well as a four-player cooperative mode called Swarm. The game also makes concessions to offline gamers with a five-hour single-player campaign and full bot support, ensuring all the game modes can be experienced without going online.
