More Details on The Conduit

A plethora of new details have surfaced about Sega’s promising FPS The Conduit and I thought you all would enjoy. Check out the juicy new details below and gear up for this awesome release for Wii. Check it out:

– 32 max friends saved. Tried to get 64 but fell into problems.
– LAN play cut because the Wii doesn’t properly support it. When playing the Wii still wants to connect to Nintendo’s servers, which causes problems when trying to play locally. Tried to work it out with Nintendo but no viable solution came up.
– Lobby allows for voting of weapon sets, map, etc.
– No ‘classes’, but character customisation does exist.
– No DLC.
– 6 to 8 hours for the single player, longer to unlock and find everything.
– Wanted to do custom soundtracks, but fell through.
– Five playable ‘characters’ for multiplayer with a wealth of skin altering options for further customisation.
– Lots of unlockables including cheats, concept art, achievements, and more.
– Multiplayer has 3 ‘Game Types’ with 13 ‘Game Modes’. 8 weapon sets. 7 maps.
– Ranking system to show your skill level. No hint that anything is ‘unlocked’, just a ranking of skill.
– Five single player difficulty levels; Low, Guarded, Elevated, High, and Severe. Guarded is default. Claims to have only beaten the game twice on Severe.
