The week of April 17 will be a big one for shooter fans on all major consoles. SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs will debut on the PlayStation 3, The Conduit 2 is expected to launch on the Wii, and TimeGate Studios today announced that its own Section 8: Prejudice would hit Xbox Live Arcade on April 20. While the other two aforementioned games are system exclusive, TimeGate's first-person shooter sequel will hit PC downloadable storefronts on May 4, with a PS3 edition following this summer.
The original Section 8 was a full-priced retail release for the Xbox 360 and PC when it launched in September of 2009, with a downloadable PS3 edition following last 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.
