Section 7: Into Arm's Way

RPG set 30 years before the events of Section 8.


SUGAR LAND, Texas – April 1, 2010 – TimeGate Studios is proud to announce the newest game to take place in the Section 8® universe with Section 7: Into Arm’s Way (S7IAW) for next, next-generation consoles. Taking the franchise to the new frontier of role-playing games, S7IAW builds upon the strengths of the developers of the critically acclaimed Kohan® real-time strategy series and first-person shooter, Section 8.

Players will be able to step-into the famed role of Alex Corde’s father, Dean Corde, approximately 30 years before the events of Section 8 and pioneer the galaxy with the newly formed Helldivers in this epic tale of heroism, betrayal, and sacrifice against an unknown evil.

“Section 7: Into Arm’s Way will be an unforgettable and emotional experience for role-playing game fans across all next-gen platforms,” says Adel Chaveleh, CEO, TimeGate Studios. “Fans and critics will agree that by going back to the basics of what made classic RPGs great—linear storylines, pausable combat, mandatory food and drink usage, level-grinding, and inventory management—we were really able to innovate in the genre and cooked up something extremely special in S7IAW.”
