Staff Fortress 2 didn’t precisely go wherever, however I couldn’t inform you the final time myself or somebody I knew really performed it. What was as soon as on the peak of recognition on Steam slowly pale into obscurity, grew to become plagued with bots, and later was bereft of any main updates.
That’s, till, yesterday. Staff Fortress 2 shared a weblog put up with followers and gamers, detailing that the sport will obtain a “full on update-sized replace,” and would require the assistance of the group.
I don’t learn about you, however after I first noticed the put up do the rounds on Twitter final evening, I used to be drained and dismissed it as being an elaborate prank. Alas, this isn’t a drill, and this replace may lastly breathe again some life into Staff Fortress 2. Gamers nostalgic for the light-hearted shooter can, in the end, rejoice in some new, official content material.
Staff Fortress 2, after asserting the replace will characteristic new gadgets, maps, taunts, and extra, has additionally mentioned it wants Steam Workshop content material from gamers. In case you’re trying to contribute, you’ll have to submit any content material to the Steam Workshop by Might 1, for the possibility for it to be featured in an “as-yet-unnamed, un-themed, however nonetheless very thrilling summer-situated (however not summer-themed) (until you wished to develop summer-themed stuff) replace.”
What does the group suppose? Properly, it appears numerous them have been rejoicing in the truth that Staff Fortress 2 is just not useless. u/Felaxi on the Staff Fortress 2 subreddit declared they have been straight up having a coronary heart assault, with u/reactivesayswhat having an identical response to myself, “Wait, for actual? This isn’t a shitpost? Please don’t get my hopes up.”
And, properly, the bulk have been additionally in disbelief. In spite of everything, it’s been some time. Let’s additionally not neglect, that weblog put up by no means mentioned something about this being the ultimate replace for Staff Fortress 2 both, so right here’s to hoping the sport, and its followers, could discover a new bot-free lease of life in future. I’m rooting for you all.
