    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.

    Besides our website, you can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and IRC at #jc2-mp on irc.freenode.net

    This sounds amazing. Though this means I'll have to get the PC version...

    The only thing stopping me from rebuying for PC was this. Buying now, does it work with steam?

    Is it laggy at all? That seems to be a huge concern.

    Otherwise this seems hella fun. I'd love to drive a car with one dude in the passenger seat, one on the roof, and one parasailing on the back.

    There was pretty much no lag most of the time, it's perfectly playable. Only a little lag at the airport with everyone smashing airplanes everywhere.

    The worst or best thing about the mod is all the carjacking. Tons of carjackers just waiting at the highway near the spawn point.

    Adding multiplayer to a game like this is certainly a Just Cause.

    Sweet! I really hope JC3 comes out soon, and has better physics/interactions with the people of the island. Otherwise, superb game!

    EDIT: Tested, didn't work.... Can't get past the Just Cause 2 credits menu, sadly. I'm using an illegal version, will take a bit before I find a fix :/

    It's a beta. You guys missed it although it's supposed to start again for a little bit today.

    The footage in the video looks pure multi-player awesomeness, i really should re-install this and give it another whirl.

    I just didn't take to the start of this game and uninstalled it.

    Oooh, £3.50 atm on Steam. Is it worth it purely for this mod? (I already have the game pirated).
