Section 8 Prejudice has finally been getting the attention it deserves. It's an amazingly deep shooter for a downloadable game and a great value, and now there's even more to like. For starters TimeGate has built a dedicated server system for Xbox Live players, a first for the online service. Not only that but there's a whole new stat linking scheme that lets you connect your TimeGate profile to your Xbox Live, PSN, or Games for Windows account.
The game is now available for preorder, with the requisite bonuses on the various download services offering Section 8 Prejudice. Personally I find the %10 discount on Steam more tempting than the unlockable bonuses, but that's just me. Check out the stat-linking dev diary below.
Sugar Land, TX - (April 25, 2011). TimeGate Studios revealed today an exclusive partnership with GameServers.com to provide dedicated server rentals for fans playing Section 8: Prejudice (www.warisprejudice.com) on the Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Section 8: Prejudice, 2011’s most anticipated and robust $15 downloadable shooter, rolled out to Xbox consumers on April 20th.
Dedicated servers traditionally exist solely for the PC platform. PC players embrace dedicated servers because of players’ ability to host high-capacity servers, private sessions, configure game types, and generally customize their play experience and environment. Section 8: Prejudice is the first product on the Xbox 360 platform that allows players to run PC-hosted dedicated servers, allowing console players to enjoy the same high-performance, tailored dedicated server experience that PC platform players have enjoyed for many years.
“We’re excited to provide this feature to the Xbox 360 community,” said Adel Chaveleh, President of TimeGate Studios. “Players who rent dedicated servers from GameServers can customize their server so they can play with their clans and friends how and when they want. It’s all about giving more control to the player. Our partnership with GameServers helps us provide a quality service for Xbox gamers never seen before, and we’re proud to reveal this feature for Section 8: Prejudice in a manner that makes setup and management of a dedicated server a no-brainer.”
Beginning today, players are able to rent Xbox 360 servers that support up to 32 players for the Xbox 360 version of Section 8: Prejudice and fully configure it according to their preferences. Gamers can choose between “Ranked” and “Unranked” servers, customize any available features such as maps, game modes, difficulty levels, and gameplay settings, to name a few. Finally, all of these options are made easy to configure and manage via an automated web-based interface, greatly reducing the traditional barrier to entry of setting up a dedicated server.
