EIEIO 2008: Section 8 Mini-Details

At this years EIEIO conference, TimeGate Studios showed some of their "not even pre-alpha" title, Section 8. The title is coming out for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC Q3 2009, so we have a long wait.

The name, Section 8, stands for a military code for a psychologically-motivated discharge.

The respawning in this game works by picking an area in your control that you want to "burn in" (respawn). Your characters have jet packs that allow you to soften your landing when you burn in. If you crash down at top speed, your shields will decrease. It may be possible to use your flying body as a projectile weapon and launch yourself at enemies and such. Sounds exciting.
