Section 8: Prejudice has just gotten a new game mode fueled by players' bloodlust. "Assault Mode" is a team-versus-team control point mode with a time limit. Developer TimeGate says it encourages cooperation between the classes to finish your objectives fast. The mode is now included and unlocked, so no DLC is required.

The Assault mode was set to unlock when the PC and Xbox 360 audiences scored a combined 10 million kills. The impressive feat happened in just over two weeks, so now current and new players alike can enjoy the fruits of their murderous labor.

TimeGate has also announced that it will be holding a Game With Devs session on the Xbox 360 this Sunday, May 15. It will last from 5 to 8 pm EST, and they promise more details coming soon.

A PlayStation 3 edition of the game is also planned for sometime this summer. It's unknown if the Assault Mode will already be unlocked, or if PS3 players will have to meet some new benchmark.

          Its unreal 3 engine so you can mode the config files(tweaks), so it will be better than the Xbox 360 and PS3 for sure.

          Basically graphically only, minor gameplay tweaks for gameplay(FOV) etc, I am not sure of any other differences as for the core game.

          I own the 360 version and have enjoyed it so far. 16 vs 16 gameplay and if a person leaves a bot fills in. I believe Silent Wolf owns it as well.. haven't seen anyone else from the shack on Live so far.

          It feels like Tribes with Brink style generic objectives thrown in (ie stop the convoy, protect a radar site, assassinate all the enemy players, etc).

            "It feels like Tribes..."

            -I think it feels close enough to Tribes that it is awesome. Damn I miss Tribes.

              Whelp, I just spent $15 bucks based on this sentiment, so we'll see how that goes.

      "The mode is now included and unlocked, so no DLC is required."

      What is this? Their not charging you for something that already came with the game like other companies?

      This game is great. I bought it to carry me over until the Brink release, but Brink is far less enjoyable.

      Still not sure why content is locked when they release games? I don't think there are many people that feel the need to play extra hard to unlock content they have no hopes of unlocking on their own. It's not like a MMO (that this was probably taken from) which has achievable and tangible goals on a single player basis.

      I don't think people will buy the game because content is locked, just to unlock it either... what's the point?


      On another note, Prejudice is far more consolized then the original Section 8, while not adding many more features besides a last stand mode that every game and it's mom is doing. I'm glad you guys are enjoying it though.

        It has great potential if they bother to follow through with more content.

      Ahhh, good news. They just announced they *will* be patching in a fix for the horrible FOV. Thank God.
