The Team Fortress 2 Update continues, with a new game mode announced today alongside a new map. The new game mode is King of the Hill – a multiplayer mode which is surely familiar to anybody who plays multiplayer FPS games. Essentially, one team takes hold of a point, and has to stop the other team from taking it away from them. There’s a timer of three minutes which counts down for the duration of your teams’ occupation of the point, and the same for the other team. Essentially, the first teams’ timer to reach zero wins.
With this news comes the announcement of a new map, this time set in a snowy setting, specifically designed for the new mode along with the arena maps Sawmill and Nucleus which have been modified for the new mode.
