With JC2-MP approaching release we've decided to dedicate this public test to test all of our Lua scripting functionality by running the Faction Wars gamemode. Not only does this extensively use nearly every scripting function we have, it's also very exciting to play!
You'll be trying to capture all of the 370 bases to gain vehicles, money and reputation. Unfortunately, the competing factions will be trying to do the same so it's up to your faction to protect existing bases at the same time!
As always, you can find a countdown on our homepage
and a list of local times
on our website.
