Default Section 8

Has anybody heard of this? I came across a really nice looking cinematic which gives some clues to how the game "might" play. There's a beta sign up (north-american and european) currently showing on the website, not sure if its active or not. Will have to do some research onto this.

The basics, it appears to be some sort of humans vs aliens sci-fi FPS game. Players have a powersuit a bit like Crysis in that it protects you, seems to have some sort of shield.

Nice video at this link

Oh and here's the main website

Excessive damage endured by the player to certain parts of their body, such as their legs, arms, head, or chest, may disable or hinder the use of these enhancements.[8]

Players will be able to deploy a variety of vehicles in the game, including heavy-armor suits and a four-person tank.[9] A variety of turrets, healing supply depots, and sensor arrays that place enemies on a map will be available and can be purchased within the game using “Requisition Points.”[10]

A feature called “Dynamic Combat Missions,” or DCMs, will be featured in the game. These have been described as a meta-game within the game itself and can be activated mid-combat by the player.[11] DCMs reward the player with Requisition Points when completed successfully. Some DCMs will include protecting a convoy, destroying a bridge, or assassinating an enemy VIP.[12]

I just wish it had been section 9!

We need you, Citizen!
