The demo for Just Cause 2 has been out for a little while now, and so far it seems much fun is to be had from causing some creative havoc in Panau. The game isn’t out for another week yet, but already we are being told Avalanche Studios have ‘big plans’ for this when it comes to DLC, Maybe even some form of multiplayer somewhere down the line? More after the jump.
Lead designer at Avalanche Studios, Peter Johansson, has confirmed today that there will be lots of DLC for their upcoming free-roaming explosion-fest. Possibly even a hint at some form of multiplayer or co-op download at some point?
Weâ€™re going to have a lot of DLCâ€¦.. but a game like Just Cause 2 can live pretty long because itâ€™s not just playing through the story and being done with it â€“ thereâ€™s the completion rating and playing with friends. Iâ€™m not sure what the plans are from Squareâ€™s side, but we are definitely going to do that for the game.
“Playing with friends”? Now it wouldn’t take a conspiracy theorist to look at that and think ‘co-op’, but who knows? It’s all guess work for the moment. With all the game time that Avalanche hopes people will be logging (Johansson says that 55 hours of play has given him about 60% completion), it is assumed there will be some form of online stat tracking system, something most games of the genre incorporate these days, though its doubtful we will know until we get our hands on the game next week.
Just Cause 2 is set to be released on March 23rd US and 26th for the EU. If you haven’t tried it yet, download the demo from the marketplace, go blow some shizzle up… Yo.
UPDATE: We’ve recently found a new video giving some tips on some ever more creative ways to make enemies fly and die, check it out!
