Eric Nofsinger, High Voltage Software Chief Creative Officer on patching in Conduit 2…

“Well, it allows us to do patching now, and in the immediate future. Our goal is to be able to resolve any foreseeable problems through beta testing phase, but it does give us the ability to go back and resolve any significant issues that might pop up. As with any multiplayer game, things can get a bit dicey; when players are able to find exploits, or more significant issues where a small number of players engage in hacking or glitching, it can disrupt the experience for other gamers. Then it’s a good idea to have a system in place where you can do your best to circumvent some of those issues.”

Nofsinger on the possibility of DLC…

“We’d like to, but it really depends on sales. We’re currently just focused on the retail game itself, but we are certainly thinking about DLC in the future.”
