Those who lapped up Carmageddon Reincarnation on Steam Early Access are in for a tremendous treat: Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now, the smash-hit 1998 sequel to the original game in the notorious series where pounding pedestrians for points is a viable way to win a race, has had a fresh new release on Steam, and is free-to-download for anyone who purchased Carmageddon Reincarnation on release. Otherwise, it will set you back £5.99.
It's worth noting that the Steam version of Carmageddon 2 is identical to the original released in 1998. As such, Stainless Games stress that "although it’s been extensively tested and “should just work (TM)” on a wide range of current PC specifications, it is sold “as-is”, with no plans for patches, updates or bug fixes.”
Carmageddon 2 was known for taking the infamous pedestrian-splatting simulator into an open world, cranking up the carnage, and therefore the controversy, to whole new level. It was subsequently banned in numerous territories, although playing it again in 2014 will probably seem laughably tame for today's standards.
