Section 8®: Prejudice™ Distribution and Pricing Strategy Confirmed, Aims to Corner Digital FPS Market

Sugar Land, Texas– December 15, 2010 There may be something strange in the water down here in Texas, or perhaps TimeGate Studios’ CEO, Adel Chaveleh, has gone completely mad, but the award-winning independent developer and publisher has revealed that Section 8: Prejudice, a sequel to the full-priced Section 8, will be available exclusively as a digital download on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC for just $14.99 / 1200 Microsoft Points. No joke.

Prejudice is a full-featured, sci-fi-themed, first-person shooter that delivers a 5-hour, story-driven single-player campaign, robust online multiplayer for up to 32 players across a variety of maps, and a new 4-player co-op game mode, entitled Swarm.  As if that wasn’t enough, all game modes and content will be playable offline, as the $14.99 product also includes full bot support.

“We’re challenging the notion of just how much quality and value we can pack into a digital download first-person shooter ,” said Adel Chaveleh, CEO of TimeGate Studios.“Our target is very simply to be the highest quality, best value digital FPS on the market.  Prejudice is a full-retail-scoped product, so I’m sure our fans will be very happy with our price-point decision.”

In addition, TimeGate plans to heavily support the community after launch by expanding Prejudice with a substantial downloadable content plan. 

Prejudice is scheduled to launch in Q1 2011, and will be available on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3system through the PlayStation®Network, and Windows PC through digital distribution outlets such as Steam and Games for Windows– LIVE on Demand.
