It looks like developer TimeGate Studios really wants to spoil Playstation 3 users.
The first downloadable map pack for Section 8: Prejudice, lengthily named “The Frontier Colonies Map Pack,” will be launching on PSN on September 13 and a day later in Europe.
The pack, priced at $3.99 USD, includes two maps and is detailed by TimeGate studios as such:
The Frontier Colonies Map Pack comes with two new multiplayer maps each with a different look and feel. “Desolation” is a parched desert world haunted by the remains of a failed colonization attempt. “Overseer” is home to a military base that overlooks a lush forest valley. Both maps are playable in both multiplayer and offline play for all game modes included in Section 8: Prejudice.
Playstation Plus users will be able to purchase the map pack for $2.00 during the first month of release.
No details for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the DLC have been released as of this writing.
As an impoverished journalism graduate and a fan of quality downloadable shooters like Battlefield 1943 and Section 8: Prejudice, this has me pretty stoked.
