On the war-torn planets of tomorrow, mankind's greatest battle is about to begin. With its frontier colonies devastated by a growing insurrection, Earth dispatches its premier unit of powered-armor infantry to repel the coming onslaught. Known to their peers as Section 8, this elite unit spearheads the near-suicidal missions required to break enemy lines. Shielded by their advanced armor, these soldiers launch directly into the fray from orbital dropships.

Section 8 is an intense first-person shooter that allows players to dynamically alter the flow of combat as they see fit. Employing strategic assets and on-demand vehicle deliveries, players are given unprecedented tactical control over epic sci-fi battlescapes.


  • Multiplayer: Section 8 is a sci-fi first person shooter delivering the ultimate multiplayer experience with up to 16-player matches.
  • Customization: Determine your own role in combat through customization of weapons and armor.
  • Deployables: Alter the flow of battle by calling in "deployables" and triggering objective-based missions affecting the entire battlefield.
  • Orbital drop: Burn in to battle from 15,000 feet and see the action unfolding below as you descend.

I'm glad I bought this from Fileplanet for $7.50 cause this game is really bad. It's trying to be like Tribes but it misses so badly. Section8
