Section 8

TimeGate Studios's sci-fi FPS inviting Europeans to register to be among the first to play it this summer.

LEICESTER, MAY 1ST – SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SOPK; SOPKU; SOPKW; SOPKZ) is pleased to announce that the 8th Armoured Infantry is launching its recruitment drive across Europe. Potential troopers can visit www.JoinSection8.com to register their interest and enlist for the Section 8 beta on PC, which is taking place over the summer.

Developed by TimeGate Studios, Section 8 is an intense first-person shooter that gives players unprecedented strategic control over the battlefield, employing tactical assets and on-demand vehicle deliveries to dynamically alter the flow of combat. Set in the distant future when humanity is facing a growing insurrection among its colonies, Earth dispatches the elite 8th Armoured Infantry to turn the tide.

Utilising advanced powered armour suits, these volunteers are the only ones crazy enough to smash through enemy defences and drop directly into the battlefield from 15,000 feet. Their bravery earned them the nickname “Section 8”, an old military regulation where soldiers were classed as unfit for duty due to mental instability.

Now volunteers in Europe can sign up for the Section 8 beta at www.JoinSection8.com. With only a limited number of places available, those drafted over the coming months will be loaded up and sent out to the frontline. JoinSection8.com also contains vital intel about the game and is the place to stay active within the Section 8 community.

Section 8 is due for release on PC and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® later this year.
