I’ve never been a terribly big fan of pretty much every game that was once single player somehow getting a multiplayer mode shoehorned into it. It’s happening everywhere you look from Uncharted to Mass Effect to Assassin’s Creed to now even God of War. Where does the madness end?
Of course, the one single player game that could have actually been pretty damn amazing WITH multiplayer didn’t actually get it. Just Cause 2 is a blast to dick around in by yourself, but I can only imagine how much fun it would be with a friend. Or five. Think of the beautifully orchestrated chaos that could ensue.
An intrepid team of hackers and modders have been making it their mission the past few years that they can bring a Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod to life. The above videos showcases what that might look like, should they ever finish the project for general consumption. Go read more about the mod here.
