Have you ever played Just Cause 2 and thought the game would benefit from the addition of multiplayer? It seems that someone, somewhere feels for you. Just Cause 2 Multiplayer has just been released as an unofficial mod for the PC version of the game, and it promises a rollicking good time with friends.
A group of fans have been hard at work over the past two years, trying to create a multiplayer modification for the open-world action game. Although the mod has had a troubled development cycle, things eventually came together.
Over two years ago we set out to turn Just Cause 2 into a multiplayer game. During the course of the two months we spent working on JC2-MP, we were met with many obstacles – which at the time felt impossible to conquer. For the last month we’ve been working in secret to achieve those goals, with great success. Over the coming months, our aim is to polish the current build to a state that can be released to the public. Contrary to popular conspiracies, we were not shut down by Avalanche Studios. Nor did we intentionally delete our source code to inhibit further growth. The source at the time was extremely unstable and volatile. However this time around, we have squashed all obstacles encountered thus far.
A high-octane video of Just Cause 2 Multiplayer in action can be seen below. You can go and download it here. Let us know how it is!
