Whilst Section 8 is predominately a multiplayer game where up to 32 players can battle it out on one of the multiple maps, it also features a single player campaign where you take on the role of trooper, Alex Corde. Entitled Corde's Story, the single player mode allows you to play through each of the maps available in the game's multiplayer mode.
By playing through and completing the various objectives laid out for you in single player, you'll be able to get to grips with the game's controls more efficiently. It's the best way to prepare yourself for just how fast and furious Section 8 becomes when you start competing against friends and other players via PlayStation Network.
One of the most interesting abilities is how you spawn on a map, so take advantage of it. Section 8 lets you soar through the air on your way to the battlefield thanks to the trusty jetpack attached to your suit. When you reach a certain altitude you can then slow down by pressing the X button and guide yourself to a landing spot using the left and right stick. If you're feeling brave (and cheeky), why not land on an enemy's head?
