Just Cause 2 Multiplayer video: exploring the insanity of Build World

Wes Fenlon at

I didn't think Just Cause 2 Multiplayer could be more ridiculous than it was when it launched in December, but Build World, a custom server created by avid JC2-MP player Jman100, proved me wrong. Any normal JC2-MP server you join will be filled with dozens of people stunt jumping off of jumbo jets or flying boats across the sky. Jman's Build World adds something new: his server, called Jman100's Freeroam Construction Sandbox, includes a separate instance where players can spawn any object that exists in Just Cause 2, from a tree to a Mt. Rushmore-like rock face, and place it as they see fit.

I put together a gallery of Build World's weirdest and funniest sights, which you can find here. But that wasn't enough to convey the silly fun of exploring Build World, so I had Jman100 tour me around his server while I captured video. We inevitably spent most of our time doing backflips in stretch limos, flying boats through the air, and causing havoc with Just Cause's crazy physics. Check it out below.


Just Cause 2 Multiplayer's best server is Build World, and it's full of amazing creations

On the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer server Jman100's Freeroam Construction Sandbox, players can build cities, obstacle courses, and incredibly creepy statues. Jman100 scripted a custom server instance that he calls Build World. Build World includes an expansive build menu listing hundreds of objects from Just Cause 2. After only a couple weeks, players are building weird and hilarious things. Jman showed us around his server and told us how he built it.

Today we're sharing a gallery of our favorite sights from around Build World and an interview with Jman100. On Friday, we'll be back with video touring some of Build World's most impressive creations and showing off the hilarious physics of Just Cause 2 multiplayer. There will be buses. And stunt jumps.


Just Cause 2 gets a deep discount on Steam alongside Multiplayer Mod release

Like a carnival barker standing in front of a strange-looking circus machine, the wonderfully chaotic Just Cause 2 wants you to take a ride. Syncing up nicely with the official Steam release yesterday of its massive—and free—Multiplayer Mod, JC2 is seeing a steep discount. The 80 percent price drop to $3 on Steam for the standard version of the action game runs through December 19.


Just Cause 2: Multiplayer Mod gets absurd launch trailer ahead of its impending release

It's justifiably our mod of the week and, after an intense week-long beta period, it's set to officially release in just a few short hours. One lone figure brought chaos and destruction to the island of Panau, but Just Cause 2 Multiplayer brings exponentially more. It gives players the chance to start events, compete in races, or just hang out in the airport for five seconds before being killed. The mod's launch trailer rounds up some of the many available actions.


Mod of the Week: Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod

You're parachuting over the island of Panau, as you've done countless times before. This time, however, you're not alone: the sky is full of chutes. Planes streak by, wildly firing at each other, while a crowd of people with grappling hooks all try to hijack the same helicopter. On the ground, two dozen limousines careen past in the midst of a race around an airport. The Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod doesn't boast a server of 24 or 36 players, but hundreds, potentially thousands, all in the same game at once. Panau, already a ridiculous place, just got truly nuts.


Just Cause 2: Multiplayer Mod to hold final beta test next week, announces Steam release

It's so simple when you think about it. How do you make Just Cause 2 more chaotic and hilarious? You increase its number of players from one to multiple thousands. Only, it turns out that creating something chaotic, hilarious and stable is a lot more complicated. That's why the mod Just Cause 2: Multiplayer has, until now, been restricted to occasional test weekends, giving fans just a brief window to shoot, grapple or drive their way to mega-carnage. That's about to change, first with a week-long final beta, before - soon after - an official release.


Just Cause 2 Multiplayer mod is back with another test weekend

The manic Just Cause 2 Multiplayer mod is holding another public test this weekend, after adding a selection of features sure to amplify the absurdity. Well, mainly one feature: improved hit detection - transporting over the single-player aiming system, for gunfights that are more responsive and lag-free. There's a trailer showing the new system in action. Warning: dubstep.


Just Cause 2 Multiplayer mod unleashes more chaos with public test this weekend

Phil Savage at

Given the level of unchecked infrastructural carnage caused by a single Rico in Just Cause 2, packing over a thousand of him into a single instance of Panau sounds like a really bad idea. Or a really good one. It depends on your fondness for explosions, crashes and parachutes. Either way, it's an experience, and one you can participate in this coming weekend with the next public test of the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer mod.


Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod unleashes 1000+ player madness on unsuspecting island

We've mentioned the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod before, but what happened when 600 players flooded onto its server to raise merry hell? Chaos, that's what. Chaos with vehicles, massive explosions, and a very jaunty soundtrack - as seen in this video shot during a beta test back in July that didn't even come close to maxing out the test server the mod was running on. In its most recent test, it peaked at over 1300 players, which officially counts as "a lot". Still, it's impressive stuff, we're sure you'll agree.


Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod video shows explosive boat races and plane chases

Just Cause 2's multiplayer mod - the snappily named JC2-MP - is being worked on by its creators again. They'd downed tools on the project about two years ago, citing "impossible obstacles" as their reasoning. But now they're back on the job, having worked "in secret" the last month getting the mod working. JC2-MP aims to let a gaggle of grappling hook-wielding Rico Rodriguezes take to the tropical island of Panau, to either maybe sort of overthrow some person, or - much preferably - engage in as much boat-racing, parachute-gliding, helicopter-jumping hijinx as possible.

Find out more at the mod makers' site, and see the video below for extra, explosive details. This is excellent news for our own terrifying floating weirdo, Tom F.
