Section 8: Prejudice Launching At Surprisingly Low Price

Last year's Section 8 was a somewhat underwhelming sci-fi FPS that had some cool innovations such as randomized missions. Its sequel, Section 8: Prejudice, aims to improve upon its predecessor in every way, while sporting a surprisingly low price tag.

Developer TimeGate has chosen to release Section 8: Prejudice as a download-only title on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, for only $15.00. While other downloadable first-person shooters such as Battlefield 1943 have released at a similar price, TimeGate is stressing that Prejudice has all the content of a full-fledged retail title, and will include a 5-hour single-player campaign, 32-player online multiplayer, and 4-player co-op. The game will also feature full bot support, allowing all of the game modes to be played offline as well.

We got to play a preview build of Prejudice earlier in the year, and while it hasn't fixed all of the first title's problems, it's definitely an improvement -- and a $15 price tag sounds like an awesome deal. We'll bring you more on Prejudice as we approach its Q1 2011 release.
