Team Fortress 2 Update "Next Month"

There's a Robin Walker interview on PC Gamer talking with the Valve designer about the future of Team Fortress 2, Valve's teamplay first-person shooter sequel. Robin informs them a new update is coming, and "likely" due in about a month (Valve Time) that will imbue the game with item trading, a brand new game mode, and approximately twenty new weapons and hats. Item trading is pretty self-explanatory, and he explains the new items are from the recent Polycount contest and will include items not in the winning pack. As for the new game mode, they are pretty tight-lipped for now. "We’ll probably start talking about that stuff soon once we’ve figured out how to talk about it," he tells them. "We’re going to ship a new game mode, and then we have a couple of other exciting features that we’ve been working on for a while that should be really really fun."

Looks great; item trading should definitely be interesting and (hopefully) makes items "worth" a bit more.

I just hope they don't make trading direct-only and without some sort of database. I'd hate to see people jump into a game, spam the chat with "WTT X FOR Y" and leave when nobody responds. Trading should take place outside the game imo.
