Official description

Section 8 is a large-scale, sci-fi first person shooter where fast-paced action meets military strategy in the far reaches of the galaxy. Join the epic battle between the 8th Armored Infantry and the Arm of Orion by taking part in fierce squad-based combat across majestic alien worlds.

Choose the experience you want to play by customizing your own equipment loadouts, and dynamically manipulate the flow of combat with on-demand vehicle requisitions, strategic asset deliveries, Dynamic Combat Missions, and the ability to drop anywhere on the battlefield from 15,000 feet above.

On a completely player-driven and dynamic battlefield, no two games of Section 8 will ever play the same.

* Burn in to battle from 15,000 feet: see the battlefield open up below as you reach terminal velocity; hit the air brakes and choose where you land
* Dynamic Combat Missions alter the flow of battle and remove all predictability. Use your wits to gain victory instead of just doing the same things over and over again
* Call in ‘deployables’ such as powerful gun emplacements, tanks and walking war machines to secure your hard-won territory or to gain a strategic advantage as you advance on the enemy
* Choose your weapons, armor and more; don’t be restricted to a class such as ‘scout’ or ‘medic’
* Incredible graphics, powered by a heavily modified Unreal Engine 3, deliver huge, open battlefields
* Full single-player campaign telling the story of trooper Alex Corde
* Unrivalled multiplayer combat allowing for clan, team and individual stat tracking
