EA Closing Mercs 2, LOTR Conquest Servers

EA is closing down its online support for late 2008's Mercenaries 2: World In Flames. As of March 16th this year, you'll no longer be able to play a multiplayer or co-op round of a game that's been out for just seventeen months. This is part of another wave of EA gaming shutdowns that includes games barely a year old, as detailed on the rather…

Mercenaries 2 Gets Political

Well here's a weird one. G4 are reporting that come November's first DLC update for Mercenaries 2, Barack Obama and Sarah Palin will become playable characters. (Note: the DLC is not confirmed for PC, but it's also not not confirmed. We hope. We'll ditch this story later if I'm stupid and wrong.) It sounds like an unseasonal April Fool's, but there's a video to prove…

Mercenaries 2 Patch… Trailer?

Occasionally, an idea's bizarre enough to not require for me to pun badly in the title line. This is one of those times. For the forthcoming Total Payback patch EA have released a short and actually very funny trailer (though I wonder how the self-deprecating admission of rubbishness of certain features will play with the more aggrieved gamer). It's only confirmed for the 360 and…

Mercenaries 2 Co-op Footage

The drop-in-drop-out co-op mode on Mercenaries 2 is the thing that is, for me at least, making it one of the more desirable games coming out this year (August 31st). The first live footage of the game being played co-op has just turned up, and you can see it after the jump. Explosions come as standard, and you can drive a Monster Truck into battle...

Mercenaries 2: Macho Explodo

Dudes explode, stuff gets kicked, or something. Mercenaries 2 is going all out for this year's Most Macho Explosion Awards - even if it is a lady carrying the bazooka in this instance - and it demonstrates a level of violence that causes us to make cooing noises under our breath. In fact Kieron came back from a recent hands-on talking about how he was…

Mercenaries 2 Gubbins

A week ago Jim asked us all if we were excited about Mercenaries 2. Well, think more with a new video and dev interview from Gametrailers below. Most interesting is the discussion of the new co-op mode, which is a splendid inclusion in a sandbox game. I remember meeting the team when they were making Mercenaries 1, delighted by their stated mantra: "Blow shit up."…

Are We Excited About Mercenaries 2?

Pandemic Studios' latest ludo-spawn, Mercenaries 2, is looking mighty explody. They've just released some new game footage with detailed developer-commentary over the top, which you can see beyond the click. The most sensible thing in there is also one of the more minor features, "vehicle disguise", which makes so much sense, and yet breaks the logic of most action games ever. I'm sure the idea…

Games for 2008: Mercenaries 2: World In Flames

Things like this throw me. A sequel of an enormously successful Console game arrives on the PC. What do we presume people know? And how do you best contextualise it. I suppose a little grounding is in order. Out of the first wave of clearly GTA inspired games that were more inspired than just do another crime game, Mercenaries was arguably the finest. Set around…
