Section 8: Prejudice, TimeGate Studios’ latest team-based shooter, is getting its first DLC pack next week. Set to launch on June 1 for the 360 and PC, the Overdrive Map Pack will include two new multiplayer maps that will be playable in all modes. Abaddon will have players protecting a power cell facility amidst the planet’s craters and streams of lava, while Sky Dock features a disputed military base and space port set on the frozen tundra. The pack is set to go for 320 MS Points ($3.99).
Annnnd done! Just two weeks after TimeGate announced that they would unlock Assault mode for Section 8: Prejudice once players had accumulated 10 million kills, the company has sent word that the count has been reached. For all of their hard work (and glorious victories), 360 and PC gamers now have access to a new assault-and-defend mode where teams square off over ownership of Control Points.
Some news on the Section 8: Prejudice front today. First up, developer TimeGate Studios has launched a kill counter across both the 360 and PC versions to introduce a new mode. The sooner players get to 10 million kills, the sooner the Assault game mode is unlocked for play. In Assault, teams are pitted against one another over Control Points, with the attackers trying to achieve control in the fastest time possible and the defenders trying to hold out for as long as possible. And the other bit of news, most likely spotted by you eagle-eyed readers, is that the PC version of Prejudice is now available for purchase. Shooter fans can find it on Steam, Games for Windows Marketplace, Direct2Drive, and Impulse.
TimeGate Studios has announced a first for Xbox 360 multiplayer gaming. The Kohan developer has teamed up with GameServers.com to provide dedicated server rentals for the 360 version of their latest download-only first-person shooter, Section 8: Prejudice. Beginning today, players can now host customized sessions for up to 32 players, making them Ranked or Unranked, Private or Public, and tweaking game types, maps, and rules.
