Just Cause 2

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.

The other big change might actually reduce the bullet-spam death hell of populated areas: finite ammo. "From day one of on-foot hit sync, we've had infinite ammo as a stop-gap solution. No more! From now on, you're going to have to conserve your ammo. Think you can get away with shooting forever? Think again!"

For a complete round up of what's new in this version, head to the test's announcement post.

The public weekend will kick off tomorrow and end on Monday. You can find the exact start for your timezone at this handy page.
