TimeGate Studios announces
plans to release the Windows edition of The Frontier Colonies Map Pack for Section 8: Prejudice
on July 27, adding two new maps to the science fiction shooter for the price of $3.99 USD. They also announce this will be followed later this summer with a new Skirmish multiplayer mode for the game which will be free on all platforms. Here's a bit:
The upcoming Frontier Colonies Map Pack includes two new maps for you to fight over, both on and offline. Desolation is a parched desert world haunted by the remains of a failed colonization attempt. Overseer is home to military facilities overlooking a habitable forest valley. Both maps are playable for all multiplayer game modes, including Conquest, Swarm, Assault, and the soon to be released Skirmish mode.
Touted by TimeGate’s game testers as “oh man, so awesome,” the new Skirmish mode pits the 8th Armored Infantry against the Arm of Orion in a team death match with a twist. Victory Points are awarded for kills and completed missions. Control Points cannot be captured or hacked in this game mode, though, so you’ll need to adjust your gameplay tactics.
