Online multiplayer and more confirmed for ‘The Conduit’

Infendo

Nice!Details concerning the highly anticipated FPS, The Conduit continue to come in as E3 approaches next week. This time Chief Creative Officer, Eric Nofsinger gives us an update on the current game build, control scheme, and an exciting online multiplayer announcement.

Our current multiplayer benchmarks are 16 players and we will definitely have the standard modes like Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. We are still exploring the possibilities and depending on how things go, we will have more. But we want to make certain that our online experience is solid and if that means sacrificing some other modes or features to do that, we will. We are choosing quality over quantity.

Other interviews continue to give the impression that High Voltage Software is working on increasing the multiplayer cap, and adding possible voice chat functionality. The IGN interview goes on to confirm a playable demo to be shown behind closed doors at E3 next week. Be sure to read the entire IGN interview and take a gander at some gorgeous screens along with a short in-game video.

The Conduit looks better and better each time I see it. What do you think?
