Even though GDC 2009 is done and gone, we couldn't let The Conduit slip by. This first-person shooter is going to surprise a lot of people when it finally drops. We were able to talk with the guys at High Voltage about this Wii summer 2009 release, getting some new details on the story and the surprisingly good graphics of this title.
In the video you'll learn about the graphics engine that makes The Conduit shine. They say that they've pushed the Wii to the limit, and we believe that. You'll also get an in-depth look at the control and customization options in the game. They've left it up to the player to decide how the game controls -- very impressive. Finally, we get just a touch of the backstory of this FPS, set in the near future in Washington DC.
High Voltage was tight-lipped about the multiplayer aspect of The Conduit during this interview, though. We're glad to say that we'll be finding out more in how that will work in the very near future, so look out for that. From what we've seen, The Conduit is definitely a game that you'll want to play multiplayer.
