Section 8 is an intense first-person shooter that gives players unprecedented strategic control over the battlefield, employing tactical assets and on-demand vehicle deliveries to dynamically alter the flow of combat. Set at the crossroads of a growing insurrection among its colonies, Earth dispatches the elite 8th Armored Infantry to turn the tide.

The website, www.joinsection8.com, will serve as an information delivery system for all would-be members of the 8th Armored Infantry, otherwise known as Section 8. Troopers will become privy to classified information, preliminary intelligence, top secret videos, and images to decorate their barracks with.
