Warthog has announced that is currently developing the sequel to Conquest: Frontier Wars. The original Conquest was developed by Digital Anvil, but the game was published by Ubisoft when Microsoft acquired DA and dropped the game. To further complicate matters, elements of Warthog in the United Kingdom developed Wing Commander Privateer 2, however Conquest is being developed by the Texas branch of Warthog. Warthog Texas is based out of Austin and is home to several Digital Anvil veterans such as Eric Peterson. Whew. A few Wing Commander themed easter eggs made it into the original Conquest because of these links. With that background out of the way, Conquest 2: The Vyrium Uprising is a real time strategy game set in space. It will feature four races and have four campaigns. New dynamic special events, spaceborne creatures, hero characters and more will be added. In additional to standard RTS battles, Conquest 2's multiplayer will include capture the flag and objective based missions as well.
A 26 meg trailer is available in Warthog's media section. The game is expected for PC in the fall of 2005. TeamXBox has suggested an XBox version may also be in the works.
