In what may be another entry in Valve’s war against productivity, Valve has decided that its ever-popular, free-to-play masterpiece of a first-person shooter named Team Fortress 2 must have a cooperative horde-styled mode.
Yes, the multiplayer game mode that was popularized by Gears of War 2 is finally hitting the free-to-play juggernaut that is Team Fortress 2. Along with the new mode expecting to be released on this coming Wednesday, Valve has created a lovely short in celebration of the new mode. Feast your eyes on the short below;
As Valve sometimes likes to do, an alternate reality game (ARG) was created to hint at the forthcoming game mode. I will not be covering the ARG as it involves male pregnancy and talking babies. Yep…that’s TF2’s sense of drama for you. If you do feel the urge to check it out, the PC gaming website Rock, Paper, Shotgun has transcribed the major milestones of the 12-hour-long hunt.
As always, any major Team Fortress 2 updates usually spark a small flame of excitement in myself, with this one being no exception. And with the promise of incredible loot, that only makes the flame burn brighter. Needless to say, I am eagerly anticipating the release of the update.
