TF2 Update News Day 2 – King of the Hill arrives.

August 13, 2009

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.

TF2 Update Inbound, Hats Are The New Old Hats

It doesn’t seem long since the mighty Sniper vs. Spy update, but apparently Valve have decided to shake things up again with a new ‘classless’ update for Team Fortress 2. What that essentially means is that the update will have no specific class in mind – and therefore all classes will get something nifty. The first day of update news is up, and we can be expecting 18 new hats and a new Arena level to be arriving with the update. We’ll keep you posted with the next few days of news.

Sniper Vs Spy – TF2 Update Is Live

The new update for Team Fortress 2 has gone live. I’ve not gone over the new update in any great length, because I’m saving it all up for a mini ‘review’ of the changes, but you can find all the details on what’s changed over at the update page. On top of this, Valve are having another free weekend of TF2, meaning that anyone that still hasn’t bought the game can try it for nothing for the weekend. The game itself is also half price at the moment, meaning you can get it for £6.99.
