Despite lukewarm reviews for the first game, Konami is creating a sequel to for Coded Arms titled “Contagion.” Contagion will boast a new story line with all new characters and fully customizable controls. The major upgrade is the addition of infrastructure play for up to eight players.
Coded Arms 2 thrusts players into a new cybernetic crisis where they must use their hacking abilities and an arsenal of high-powered weaponry to survive. As a lone security agent players will return to A.I.D.A., a virtual reality military training program, to prevent cyber-terrorists from taking control of the program and gaining access to classified military information. The hackers believe that AIDA shouldn’t be restricted for only government use. The agent must use his abilities and combat skills to disinfect AIDA from the hacker-introduced virus so he can escape the system. Across a variety of enclosed and open-air levels, players will take on original enemies with an all-new selection of firearms and explosives that lets them counter the terrorist menace with more firepower than ever before. Up to eight players can go head-to-head in the game’s new online multiplayer modes.
