Just Cause 2 was one of the most expansive and exciting game worlds ever created. Although the game was restricted to just one player – you – there were still a near unlimited number of activities available in the game.
Well, what happens when you add hundreds of players together into the game? That’s a dream that the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod wants to see happen.
The Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod has been making headlines ever since Just Cause 2 was first released way back in 2010. Since then, those in charge of the project have been constantly tweaking the mod and testing it during open beta testing weekends.
Thousands have already experienced the thrill of Just Cause 2 Multiplayer, but now it looks like thousands more will get to experience that thrill in the near future. Here’s the latest update from the mod’s creators, who have been quite for several months:
“Since August, we’ve been in radio silence, working hard on the mod. We’ve hinted at a big surprise, and we think it’s time to finally let everyone in on the big secret: On release, you’ll be able to download the client and server from Steam, just like a normal game. This means complete Steam integration, including joining on your friends and more.”
What?!!? That sounds like a ridiculous amount of fun. The Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod is currently in its final stage of beta testing. You can jump in now or wait for the final game to come out via Steam.
We now officially have a release date for Just Cause 2’s multiplayer mod. It will be released on Monday, December 16. Just in time for the holidays!
Personally, I can’t wait to tear around the islands of Panau in jets, cars, parachutes, zip lines, and who knows what else. I had so much fun playing Just Cause 2 in singleplayer that multiplayer is going to be a whole new ball game.
Here’s a taste of the mayhem you may be able to experience with Just Cause 2 in multiplayer:
Once the mod is finally released, you’ll be able to download it directly from your Steam client. Of course, you’ll need the Just Cause 2 original game first, but that game regularly goes on sale in Steam for less than $5.
