GC 2006 Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH enters this year’s games Convention in Leipzig fully armed as it shows its two new additions to the popular Coded Arms series. Coded Arms Assault will see the gun-toting range blasting on to PLAYSTATION 3, while the franchise will also return to its PSP roots in the form of Coded Arms Contagion with a wealth of innovative additions.

Coded Arms Assault for the PLAYSTATION 3 casts players as a hacker entering a virtual world in an attempt to overthrow an evil corporation bent on world chaos. Set in cyberspace, and boasting an intelligent and evolving storyline, players take on fearsome enemies, unleash deadly viruses, jump into rugged vehicles and download new weapons as they fight to bring down this new threat. Powered by the Unreal Engine 3, Coded Arms Assault lets players unleash unprecedented destruction on the game’s breathtaking environments, using explosions to send deadly debris flying towards their opponents and strategically using high-powered weaponry to shoot out enemy cover. The entire campaign mode of the game can be played online co-operatively with up to four players.[advert]

Boasting support for large-scale online combat, Coded Arms Assault lets up to 16 players go head-to-head within the game’s specially created multi-player environments. In several team or individual play modes, gamers will also be able to unlock additional multi-player content by achieving different conditions of play.

Coded Arms Contagion continues the series’ tradition of outstanding handheld first person shooting action for the PSP. The game 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. 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.

Expanding upon the acclaimed multiplayer modes of the series’ debut on the PSP system, Coded Arms Contagion supports online and wireless local play for up to eight players. Across a selection of new environments, players will also be invited to go head-to-head or form teams in several different gameplay modes that highlight the game’s fast paced action and customisable controls to create the ultimate portable online shooting experience.

We'll be receiving live reports from the HEXUS.gaming troops on the ground later today and hopefully some pics!
