Team Fortress 2: The Uber Update Day One(AKA I Was Right!)

on June 21, 2011 12:00 PM

Looks like I wasn’t wrong when I reported on the suspicious sudden burst of birds on the Team Fortress 2 website; Valve is going to make a big deal about the “Meet the Medic” video with their Uber Update. From now until the release of the video on Thursday, they’ll be releasing daily updates to TF2.

Yesterday’s? “Mobster Monday”, where the Spy and the Heavy received new Mafia-themed item sets. Additionally, we get Barnblitz, a new Payload map that looks to be quite the, ahem, barnburner.

With this update also comes the news that for this entire week TF2 will be free to play, so for those of you wondering why Team Fortress 2 is hailed as the best multiplayer game of this generation, you’ll have a chance to see why.

Man, with the way Valve supports a four year old game like Team Fortress 2, you can’t help but love them. I can’t wait to see what Day Two brings.
