The developer behind hit strategy games Axis & Allies and Kohan is getting trigger happy with a new FPS entitled Section 8 for PC and next-gen consoles.

But it's not all running and gunning - there will be "new innovations and elements from strategic titles added to the mix," says TimeGate president Adel Chaveleh.

"We are developing a large-scale, futuristic first person shooter that brings strategy and tactics to the first-person shooter genre in a game where players can modify the battlefield on the fly," he continues.

"We are going to leverage our knowledge of strategy games and apply it to Section 8's development. We are confident that players will be excited by the results."

The single-player game revolves around a squad of powered armour infantry known as Section 8. They're notorious for accepting any mission that's thrown at them [bloody submissives -Ed] regardless of the risks involved; especially enjoying the one's where there's a strong chance of violent death at the hands of a well-armed enemy.

"The focus is definitely large-scale FPS gameplay," says Chaveleh.

"Everyone at TimeGate loves the FPS genre and we have always wanted to put our trademark 'spin' on that kind of game."

There's no publisher or release date as yet, but look out for more news soon.
