Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod Headed to Steam, Final Beta Starts on December 7th

It’s finally here people, it’s the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod that we have been anticipating. The announcement comes via one of the developers; Philpax, and he says that the mod is coming to steam soon.

“Since August, we’ve been in radio silence, working hard on the mod. We’ve hinted at a big surprise, and we think it’s time to finally let everyone in on the big secret: JC2-MP is coming to Steam.”

The mod essentially turns Just Cause 2 into a massively multiplayer online game. When it launches on Valve’s digital platform, you’ll be able to download the client and server from Steam just like a normal game, with complete Steam integration.

The date of release isn’t official yet, but the mod will be out before 2013 is up. The final beta test runs from 7th to 14th December – after that a release date will be announced.

“Of course, before we release, we need to ensure that 0.1.0 is rock-solid. This beta test will let us work out the final issues, and give everyone a chance to play in the biggest demonstration of chaos this year.”
