Team Fortress 2 announces first full-sized update in nearly 6 years

Finally, after almost 6 years, Team Fortress 2 is set to release a new update.

Team Fortress 2 has been kept on life support for a while now, with bots running rampant and Halloween events being the only thing keeping the playerbase coming back.

So finally, fans of the game can rest easy as Team Fortress 2‘s team announced through a humorous blog post that a new update is coming.

The very cheeky blog post reads:

Steam Workshop Creators, can we have your attention please. The following message is so urgent, so time-sensitive, we made the executive decision to skip TikTok and Twitter entirely and break the glass on the most bleeding-edge communication technology available.

Welcome to the future. Welcome… to a “blog-post”.

“Wow!” you’re probably thinking. “I forgot how hard reading is!” Yeah, it’s scary how fast you lose that. Don’t worry, we’ll be brief:

The last few Team Fortress summer events have only been item updates. But this year, we’re planning on shipping a full-on update-sized update — with items, maps, taunts, unusual effects, war paints and who knows what else?! Which means we need Steam Workshop content! YOUR Steam Workshop content!

So get to work! (Or back to work, if you were already working but got distracted when the entire internet simultaneously found out about this state-of-the-art blog-post.) Make sure to get your submissions into the Steam Workshop by May 1st, so they can be considered for this as-yet-unnamed, un-themed, but still very exciting summer-situated (but not summer-themed) (unless you wanted to develop summer-themed stuff) update.

So dust off your silly hats, try to regain your lost muscle memory and… I guess wait, patiently.

We can only hope they’ll update the localization files!

Team Fortress 2 is available for Microsoft Windows, and can be downloaded for free on Steam.
