Just Cause 2 Supports Multiplayer? Holy Exploding Crap.

Sandbox action game Just Cause 2 was a blast to play solo, but sadly shipped without any kind of multiplayer. No matter. Fans of the game's PC edition have whipped up a version that lets a reported 600 people play it at once. On the same island.


The results are predictably...insane. Note that this is a fan-made thing, and is still in testing, so probably has a wys to go yet before it's "done". Still. Even what's on show here looks great.

The footage above was captured during a test run for the mod held over the weekend. 10,000 players took part in all, an average of over 400 new players every hour, with a peak server load apparently topping out at 1300+ players (I'm not sure if they were all on the same map or not...I'd be surprised if they were).

This makes me all the more sad that I probably won't stick w/ PlayStation Plus beyond the free trial, which ends in almost a week, and thus access to the free copy of Just Cause 2. If I come back to that service, it'll probably be after the oncoming school year.

... Man.
