"How can mankind fight a war that the enemy has already won?" asks the latest trailer for Sega's first-person shooter The Conduit.

The new trailer explores the story behind The Conduit in timeline form, giving us a quick synopsis as to what happened over the course of six months that ended with our protagonist running through Washington D.C. shooting aliens. Note the inclusion of September 11th in the timeline, which isn't a date you include in a North America video game advertisement lightly.
