Just Cause 3 Multiplayer Mod In The Works

When I received definitive confirmation that Just Cause 3 [official site] wouldn't have any multiplayer support out of the box, I felt like I'd been punched in the gut. If memory serves, I was talking to one of the game's producers at the time so it's entirely possible that I left the room wincing, with a wounded expression on my face. Later in the day,…

Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod Introduces AI Scripting

Happy nearly-birthday to the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod [official site], which came out just about two years ago and has graduated into its old age with a nip and tuck in the form of quite a hefty update which you can check out here. The update, which ticks over into 0.2, is in public beta at the moment and adds a whole lot of bug fixes and features.…

Just ‘Cause: Grand Theft Auto V Grappling Hook Mod

As cool ways to get around go, grappling hooks are up there with skateboards and motorbikes. Unlike boards and bikes, however, the super-rad accidents grappling hooks cause won't have you lose significant patches of your skin. Not your own, anyway. You can now grapple around San Andreas to your hearts' content in Just Cause 2 style, swinging to buildings and tying vehicles together, thanks to…

So Let’s Take Our Mind Off Things With Just Cause 3

It's... a funny old day. Big stuff, big response, not entirely sure how to feel about it all, no clue what happens next. Personally, I'm going to try and take my mind off it. This first glimpse at the don't worry about a thing mayhem of Just Cause 3 [official site] is probably an OK way to do that, for a few seconds at least.

Just Cause 3’s Probably-Not-Maybe Multiplayer

Will Just Cause 3 have multiplayer? Just Cause 2's wonky-but-ace Multiplayer Mod showed that - surprise surprise - running and driving and flying and grappling-hooking and exploding all around an open world with your chums can be pretty fun. An actual, proper, made-with-access-to-the-source-code multiplayer mode could be something special. But Just Cause 3 won't have one, Avalanche Studios have said. Probably. At this point of…

Build Your Own World In Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod

When I wrote about Just Cause 2 Multiplayer a few weeks ago, it felt like a world in wait of a game that was worthy of it. Its players might still be the ones to build that game. With the release of version 0.1.3, JC2MP's creators of highlighted a community server: Jman100's Freeroam Construction Sandbox. It lets players build their own houses, towns, ramps and…

Group Grapple: Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Hits Steam Today

Graham mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, but since the release is today and it's unlikely to be particularly visible for long on Steam, I though it best to draw attention to it again. Just Cause 2's multiplayer mod is one of the crazier alterations to a game I've ever seen, turning the enjoyably daft open world game into a massive landscape of impossible…

SteamPipe Jerks: Just Cause 2 MP Mod Coming To Steam

Just Cause 2 never gets its due. The third-person, open world shooter was hamstrung by mediocre missions, but it was also vast, beautiful and joyfully silly. It's a game where you could do things like tether a plane to a hot air balloon and then surf atop the unguided plane as it loops around and around. It's a game where you could fly using a…

Thunderpwn: The Mad Max Trailer

Following the glorious excesses of Just Cause 2, where a man can dangle a jeep from a helicopter and swing it like an explosive pendulum of doom into a dictator's face, even Mad Max can seem a bit ordinary. I watched the trailer below feeling that Avalanche might have had their wings clipped a little. That said, it's exactly what you'd expect: big open world,…

Just Cause 2 MP Mod Adding Battlefield-Like ‘Faction Wars’

There's an alternate dimension in which the day Just Cause 2 was first modded to include thousand-person multiplayer is cited as the beginning of a new, gloriously utopian chapter in human history. I'm sure of it. Quite frankly, it's the one puzzle piece that was always missing - from Just Cause 2, from plane surfing's never-ending fight to be recognized as an Olympic sport, from…

Pummel Panau: Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Test Weekend

The first rule of the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer beta tests is you talk openly and honestly about them, and leave no detail out. So I thought I'd let you all know that this weekend the mod team plan on running a beta test this very weekend. It's a remarkable mod that packs players from all over the world into Panau. Remember the chaos you…

Just Brilliant: Try Just Cause 2’s MP Mod This Weekend

Happily, "MP," in this case, does in fact stand for multiplayer - not, say, "marching penguins" or "mandible pianos." Nor is it a mangling of the frankly quite spellable word "map." At any rate, I'm devastated to find that we haven't posted about Just Cause 2's still-in-development multiplayer mod, so I'm fixing that. Specifically, its beta will be temporarily grappling/parachuting/plane-surfing into your life this weekend. I've placed…
