The original Conduit published be SEGA and made by High Voltage Software was praised for attempting to bring First Person Shooter love to the Nintendo Wii and they developed a highly optimised and polished 3D engine as well as a solid online offering to Nintendo’s platform.

Sega has again teamed up with High Voltage Software to announce the sequel and has released some screenshots for us to look at, announcing a “fall” release date.

The official press release is as below:

Conduit 2 will build upon the original with a new Team Invasion Mode, a cooperative multiplayer option that works both online and offline for up to four players—see four-player splitscreen in action below. Competitively, 12-player online multiplayer is still there, but now with “larger and more intricate indoor and outdoor battlefields.” As far as your mug appearing in Conduit 2, you’ll have to head to the game’s official site for details on getting your pretty face on an in-game poster.
