The Conduit Experience Extends Beyond the Game

The hotly-anticipated game's story details and more look to be hidden online. Also, a multiplayer gameplay video was released.

The Conduit story is one immersed in conspiracy and secrets. In the game, the All-Seeing Eye (A.S.E.) device has the power to reveal hidden elements. These hidden elements play a crucial role, and some serve to tell players the story surrounding their situation. For example, the A.S.E. can translate alien text into English.

It has been revealed that these secrets will extend beyond the game itself. At The Conduit's multiplayer event on Tuesday night, a game poster had a cryptic line of alien symbols at the bottom. These symbols, when transcribed into English, point to the website www.conduitgame.com. Visitors can take control of the A.S.E. on the site to find hidden elements, such as the alien script. Furthermore, a more mysterious site full of secrets is found at a location named after the game's tag line, www.seeing-is-deceiving.com. Here, players can decipher and enter codes, revealing hidden elements. It is not clear how far High Voltage Software and Sega plan to go with their extra-game experience, though a growing trend in the entertainment industry is to create Alternate Reality Games, where the intrepid can unravel the narrative in the real world.

It appears that players will be able to find codes that can be used in-game to unlock secret content. A menu in the game contains a code entry screen. So far, the only special unlockables that have been announced are a Secret Agent character skin for multiplayer mode and a special skin and projection pattern for the A.S.E., which are included with the Gamestop limited-edition release of the game.

The multiplayer event itself was hindered by network failure, but a new trailer of multiplayer gameplay is found below.

The multiplayer event would not have failed had they listened and actually included local multiplayer.

Truth.  That's gotta burn.

-1 for the Nintendo servers though.  I mean, what the heck?  You'd think they'd be better prepared for an event of this magnitude.

I believe there is also an unlockable skin for the all seeing eye.

Lame. I'll just wait until everyone else discovers the unlock codes and they are posted on GameFAQs.

So they use the ASE as a generic item, rather than a unique combat weapon? Lame. I kind of enjoyed hacking other players in MP2.
