A sequel to multiplayer shooter Section 8 has been announced. This will be known as Section 8: Prejudice and be released next year.

There aren't any platforms mentioned nor gameplay details offered, but there is a reveal trailer stuffed with gameplay that should do the trick. That's over on GameTrailers.

Section 8 was released last September on PC and Xbox 360, and in March this year on PS3. The game's hook was dropping futuristic soldiers onto a map from orbital dropships - a controllable descent that meant an end to spawn points and a choice of landing destination. Jetpacks and a powerful sprint ability also meant rapid navigation to other areas on the map.

Despite sounding like and looking like a lot of other shooters out there, Section 8 stood firmly on its own two feet, and received a hefty 8/10 from Eurogamer.

This is what Section 8, the original, was all about.
