FAKK 2 Multiplayer Details
10:51 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Ritual has released some more information about an upcoming multiplayer-enabled mod for their recently-released third-person action/adventure Heavy Metal FAKK 2. This new add-on will include new levels and new game types that will be specifically created in order to fit FAKK 2. They will of course include normal deathmatch, but will not include a CTF-type mod as they prefer to leave that up to the FAKK 2 community. Unfortunately all the editing tools are not available on the Mac. Here's the update:

We are currently working on a multi-player addon for FAKK 2 which we hope to have
released in the next 4 weeks. Once the add-on is complete we will be releasing that source
code as well. Our intention is not to do a CTF mod but rather leave that mod to the FAKK 2
CTF team. If you are interested in doing a deathmatch mod and you are serious please
contact me and I can arrange to get the source code to you earlier than the rest of the
world. The multiplayer source will be VERY beta until we are done with our mod, but it is
already up and running so it should provide you with an adequate test bed to get your
own mod running.
Ritual expects to have the add-on done in 4 weeks time, which will be right around the time that the Mac OS version of this title is due to ship. For more information on this much-lauded title, see our preview.
