Fan project turns Just Cause 2 into a massively multiplayer title


Forget your piddly multiplayer matches that can be counted on two hands -- fans are taking the open-world adventure game Just Cause 2 and adding a little "massively" into it. The fan mod, Just Cause 2 Multiplayer, promises over a thousand people duking it out on the same large map.

The mod was in development two years ago when it shut down due to "many obstacles," according to the devs. The team recently revived the project and has put it through several public beta tests.

"Over the coming months, our aim is to polish the current build to a state that can be released to the public," developer Woet writes.

Just Cause 2 Multiplayer features both ground and vehicular combat, grappling hooks, and cartoonish action.
