Ritual's Mark Dochtermann has revealed that the Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2 developer is working on a downloadable multiplayer add-on to the game, which is based on the comic magazine and the cult animated movie. In a post to the forum on the fan site Ritualistic, Dochtermann said that the multiplayer add-on will be ready in about four weeks. In addition, Ritual plans to release the multiplayer source code for use by community mod makers. An external group is already working on a CTF mod for F.A.K.K. 2.
Multiplayer support may help address the complaint of some reviewers that the game is too short. F.A.K.K. 2's combat mechanics are quite different from many action games, as they incorporate a balance of ranged and melee weapons and let players wield two weapons simultaneously. Watch GameSpot News for further information on the add-on as it nears release next month.
