No One Lives Forever 2 Future Plans
6:00 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Gamespy recently post an article looking at the future of the hit comedy first person shooter, No One Lives Forever 2. As some people may know, the multiplayer element of the title was vastly changed from the original, featuring only a single co-operative mode. Gamespy's article gives details on a multiplayer patch that will be released for the game, featuring more competitive gameplay modes and new maps, along with confirming a planned expansion.

Here's a preview of the article:

The 'first big release' (as Monolith put it) is a huge NOLF2 multiplayer patch which will be released within a week or two, adding deathmatch, team deathmatch, and a new gameplay mode called Doomsday. The patch should contain over 10 maps, many based on NOLF2 single-player levels (including Siberia, Japan, and Khios), but including large pieces of original architecture as well.

In many ways, the Doomsday modification shares some similarities with games like Capture the Flag: there are three parts of a 'doomsday device,' and if your team can collect all three pieces and bring them back to their base, they win the level. In keeping with NOLF2's often lighthearted tone, the other team is annihilated in entertaining fashion, with an electrical pulse quickly rippling from the device across the entire level, eventually killing all the enemies in its path. We had a chance to playtest the mod for about an hour, and it was amusing to see enemies scramble around and try to hide once the device was set off (even though there's really no way to avoid destruction at that point).
To read the full article, follow the link provided below. NOLF2 is currently being ported to the Mac, although there is no word specifically if the Mac version will contain the new multiplayer patch.
