Section 8 delayed by a week in UK

Multiplayer shooter has minor jetpack.

SouthPeak has told Eurogamer that multiplayer shooter Section 8 has suffered a minor delay in the UK.

"The game is now being released on 11th September not 4th September due to a small delay in the manufacturing process," a spokesperson for SouthPeak told us. Do hope no one fell into DVD-pressing machine.

Section 8 - for PC and Xbox 360 - has fighters drop into maps from a great height, allowing maps to be surveyed and tactics worked out on entry. Once landed, jetpacks can be used to hop around the level.
