High Voltage Reveals Juicy Details on The Conduit, and Plans a Q1 2009 Release

11 06 2008

Judging from the Q1 2009 announcement for The Conduit that broke yesterday, the boys at High Voltage seem like they’ve been working hard on their new insect infested FPS. Gamers have had their eye on this project since the surprising debut on IGN, given the title may change the standard for visuals on Wii. The Conduit is reported to feature online competitive play, along with a single player campaign. According to the article on WorthPlaying, the game should be capable of some fairly advanced graphical tech:

Advanced graphical features include dynamic environment mapping, interactive water with real-time reflection, and four-stage texture composition including gloss, diffuse, and bump mapping.

The recent stigma has been that the Wii is only suited for casual games, but High Voltage’s Chief Creative Officer, Eric Nofsinger, intends to dispel such myths:

Too many Wii owners have been told that the Wii is a casual platform with no room for serious games or top-tier graphics. With The Conduit, we intend to prove that theory wrong by providing gamers with the kind of title they imagined back when the platform was first announced.

Looks like The Conduit will be a great kick off to next year’s library, if the game does make the intended release date, that is.
