Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod: A Fan-Made Project that Brings Multiplayer to Just Cause 2

2010: The idea for a multiplayer mod for Just Cause 2 came about when Trix, the mod's lead programmer, envisioned Just Cause 2's game world packed with other players while playing the game's demo version before its release. He and his friend jaxm had worked on the multiplayer mods of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in the past. Just Cause 2 in its released state was seen by Trix as a perfect opportunity to use his acquired knowledge of multiplayer mod development to create a mod like no other; one that would see players packing an entire island nation, rather than just a small city as was seen in the Grand Theft Auto multiplayer mods. Trix began development by attempting to reverse engineer Just Cause 2. Unfortunately the developers of Just Cause 2 offered no official tools with the game's release, so Trix had to use those created by Rick, an experienced game modder who, in creating this set of tools, had spawned a fan-made Just Cause 2 modding website. Trix, jaxm, and a few of their friends recorded videos of Trix's progress and posted them on the mod's YouTube channel. It should be noted that some of the earlier videos of the mod have been set to unlisted. The mod's website first appeared for a brief time in 2010, but was taken down until 2012 when the mod resurfaced.

2013: As development progressed the community expanded, and by 2013 the mod's website had substantially increased in overall activity. Fans of the mod flocked to the forums and IRC channel to discuss upcoming features and the mod in general. During this year the mod's developers became increasingly busy with their lives outside of JC2-MP, so it was largely the community that kept the mod relevant throughout the year. During this stage of development the developers synchronized vehicles' stunt positions, added more color to the UI, and much more. The developers also scripted simple game modes to spice things up during public beta tests. These scripts also allowed he developers to test the possibilities of custom scripts on servers at the mod's eventual release. Some notable highlights of the mod's development during this year were the community organized roadtrips, dreadmullet's new racing script, and the beta version of jaxm's extensive game mode "The Battle for Panau", which was hosted alongside the normal freeroam server during a beta test. and In late 2013 the developers announced their plans to release the mod to Steam to the surprise of the community. Following this release, Steam and Avalanche Studios put Just Cause 2 on sale very often to attract attention to the mod, and it definitely paid off. These sales along with the growing popularity of the mod on YouTube led many people to buy Just Cause 2 exclusively for the multiplayer mod, and therefore their impression of the game would be forever shaped by their experience with the mod.

"The multiplayer mod has been really inspiring to us," Sundberg said. "We have been discussing what we'd like to do with the Just Cause IP in the future, but it's too early to talk about it just yet."

If, like me, you take pleasure in the misery of others then I urge you to try your hand at the raucous affair that is the Just cause 2 multiplayer mod. The game runs seamlessly, the server is somewhat laggy but the creators have said to be reforming any issues in the next iteration of the mod. Day Z and now this, 2012 is looking to be a great year for mods and PC gaming in general.

In multiplayer, there are no computer-controlled enemies and no clear objectives. Instead, there can be hundreds of players roaming the island of Panau in cars, boats, planes or helicopters, looking to cause trouble. You make your own fun by messing with everyone else.

Naturally, this listing gives some hope to Just Cause fans hoping for a new entry in that series - and the possibility of multiplayer might finally lead to the long-hoped-for official version of the popular Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod. But the description of the game could as easily fit with other Avalanche titles like Mad Max or Rage 2, or could be related to a new IP.
