I already said this on IRC, but so that it's documented here:

We would very much like to have multiplayer too, BUT multiplayer is very, *very* hard to do - and almost impossible to bolt on existing code, so I don't think it's likely to ever happen for Arx Libertatis unless we get many more contributors.

Arx Fatalis was just not written with multiplayer in mind: We would need to completely rewrite major parts of the code including game logic and physics. Also, the scripts and story both assume that there is only one player.

The are many more attainable goals we'll focus on before that.

Anyway, I'll leave this feature request open because it is a valid feature that I would like to have too - any maybe if there's anough interest someone will be crazy enough to attempt it.
