Our partner CGA site Stomped has confirmed with Robert Atikins of Ritual that the free multiplayer patch for Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2 will be released. It was originally hoped to be completed by October, though other issues seem to have taken a priority. Here's a clip from the post:
He said that there is not much left to be done for the patch to be completed. "We just have to put the maps in, get the menu system up and going, and play test it," Atkins told Stomped. At the moment there is not a definitive date on when the new multiplayer mode, titled FAKK Arena, will be released.Good news for fans of this title -- and there must be a lot of you, since the demo has received much attention on Macgamefiles.com. Since FAKK2 is based on the Quake 3: Arena engine, it isn't too much of a stretch to get multiplayer working. We've confirmed in the past with programmer Andrew Meggs that it shouldn't be difficult getting any such patch working on the Mac version as well. We'll keep you informed as more details become available.
