FAKK2 Multiplayer Q&A
8:09 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Our CGA partner Stomped has just posted a quick chat with Ritual's Scott Alden discussing some of the details behind the upcoming multiplayer patch for Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2. This solo Quake3-engine-based game was released earlier this year for the PC, but is now getting a free update to play online against other FAKK2 fans. The Mac version, which is due out soon, should also be compatible with the multiplayer patch. Here's Alden explaining how the gameplay works so far:

Stomped: What kinds of gameplay modes will ben included in FAKK Arena?

Alden: So far we have Fakk2Arena mode which is basically a clone of RocketArena. You join an arena and battle it out with the weapons that the level designer wants you to have. The winner of a match stays on, loser goes to the end of the line. I'm not sure if any other modes will get implemented as there are a few mod teams out there chomping at the bit to get working on CTF and other stuff.

It will be interesting to see how well-accepted the patch becomes. FAKK2 is set in the third-person POV, quite different from popular online first-person shooters. Last we heard, Contraband Entertainment, the company porting this game to the Mac for Gathering of Developers, has FAKK2 for the Mac in the compatibility testing stage. When it goes gold (i.e.: ready for duplication) we'll be sure to let you know.
