Coming from High Voltage Studios (creators of the original The Conduit) and promising a longer single-player experience, split-screen co-op mode, and better multiplayer, Sega has announced that The Conduit 2 is in development and expected to arrive Fall 2010. There’s no word on Wii Motion+ support, but here’s some info from the official press release:
Conduit 2 introduces Team Invasion Mode, the new co-op mode where players will be able to battle side-by-side with up to four friends on the same screen. Additionally Team Invasion Mode can be played online.
Conduit 2 also features a new and more expansive 12-player online competitive multiplayer mode with larger and more intricate indoor and outdoor battlefields. Conduit 2 supports Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, Wii Speak™ and offers increased multiplayer security for a better online gameplay experience.
“Conduit 2 is an enormous sequel. Not only does it greatly improve and expand on the original, the online and co-op play modes aim to raise the bar for Wii war games,” said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America.
“The Conduit was the first of many original IP’s being developed by our studio.” said Kerry J. Ganofsky, CEO and founder of High Voltage Software. “That’s why it gives me great pleasure to announce a sequel with a thrilling and exciting online experience.”
“The support for the original has been amazing.” said Eric Nofsinger, HVS Chief Creative Officer. “The fans have always been a major factor in our development process and their continued enthusiasm has helped make Conduit 2 even better.”
