Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod arrives December 16

Fan-created game mod launching next week on Steam.

The fan-created multiplayer mod for Avalanche Studios' 2010 action game Just Cause 2 will launch on December 16, according to the game's product page on Steam.

The JC-MP community created the mod, which allows users to play the open-world game with their friends. It has been in development for more than two years.

A final beta testing period for the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod will be held December 7-14. Once the final version is released, you'll be able to download the client and server from Steam, just like any other title.

Last year, Avalanche Studios cofounder and creative director Christofer Sundberg said the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod proves that multiplayer can work in the Just Cause series.

The original Just Cause 2 launched in March 2010 as a single-player-only game. A sequel is rumored to be in development, though Avalanche Studios' only announced project right now is the new Mad Max game.

Between multiplayer Just Cause 2 and Path of Exile, I'll have to force myself to go out for fresh air.

I love the smell of PC master race gaming any time of day.

How much $ would one have to pay MS and Sony to have this on their consoles?

Glad I picked it up during the Summer steam sale for $2. Played a hell of a lot on the PS3.

Wonder what the max number of players on a server in the final build will be, if there is one at all. I was in a beta somewhere and there were hundreds of people on the server, it was insane!

@Code135 @Aaronp2k you aren't missing much anyway, already bored of gta online it sucks. rockstar still hasn't brought out the co-op heists and there hasnt been any new missions added so you find yourself replaying missions again and again. the story mode is nothing special either, only good missions are the heist ones anyway.

@MrYaotubo @Creed02 The highest i have seen it in the beta was about 1300 people it was utter chaos but fun...we had a convoy of hundreds of people all in vehicles tearing round the map laying waste to anyone in our way :P

@Aaronp2k I kinda agree. The what was most striking to me is the lack of quality comparing the campaign and multplayer missions. I can't count how many times at the beggining of the game I did those get the meth missions and had to watch the same cutscene over and over again. I probably just was having a bit of bad luck, but I could never seem to find anyone wanting to run missions; everyone just ran around and killed each other. Not hating on GTA5; GOTY in my opinion without a doubt. Too bad the multiplayer was rushed and didn't have the same level of polish the single player had.
