High Voltage’s Wii shooter the Conduit 2 was set to release in the middle of February, but it’s been pushed back to April. In a move that may or may not alleviate some of that sting, publisher Sega has released a load of new screens from the game. Old-school multiplayer fans can relish in the shots that show the mode in all of its split-screen glory.
The game’s new date is, more specifically, April 19. High Voltage says the additional time is allowing the team to continue balancing and honing the game’s ambitious multiplayer modes. How ambitious? I’m glad you asked. Here’s what’s in store for players when the game does eventually ship, straight from High Voltage:
Deathmatch: First player to the kill limit in the time allowed wins!
ASE Ball: Longest time holding the ASE wins!
Bounty Hunter: Kill your assigned target for points or kill those hunting you for fun. But beware; killing someone who doesn’t fill those roles will cost you points!
