Team Fortress 2 "Secret Project" Plans

The Team Fortress 2 Blog has a big update on upcoming plans for Valve's multiplayer shooter. This includes word on plans to finally release the Pyro installment in the series of "Meet the Team" shorts. the Second Annual Saxxy Awards, a Steam Workshop Blog, and a "secret project." Here's what they are revealing about this secret for now:

A Secret TF2 Project!
The TF2 team is working on something brand new for 2012. We can't tell you what it is, because they won't tell us, but what they WILL say is that it isn't a hat, it isn't a map, and go away. From this we can only conclude that the TF2 team is working on some ungodly hat-map hybrid that you can wear on your head while you run around in it. You heard it here first. Also last, because they just told us it's not that either. But it's really cool.

Apparently they've signed an exclusive deal with a high price italian shoe maker to sell digital versions!

Once again we can see where valve's interest lies

I'm going to predict it will involve hats in some way.

I still miss medic's old ability to give people plague. He was so much more fun to play then.

I miss that as well. I also miss Rock2, where the goal was to release the nerve gas and kill the enemy team. There was a limited amount of hazard suits and you'd all be racing to get to them before the gas went off.

Oh yeah! That map was awesome...

Whole TFC was awesome. Much better gameplay-wise than this dumbed down crap that calls itself TF2.

I played TF to death for a good two or three years, I stopped playing over a decade ago.

I remember an interview with Robin Walker where he said it was a shame that people kept copying TF and didn't come up with original ideas.

Ha!



P.S. Spazball!

SP campaign! They've been practising on TF2 so that they're still in shape with their SP making skills.

Yeah, because no one wants anymore Half-Life.

At this point I'm beginning to fear what shape any more of Half-life series would take. Valve really seems wholly committed to the F2P / microtransaction thing. I am starting to doubt that any Half-Life game they release at this point would even resemble what I've been hoping for for years. They've certainly given no indication that the property is even important to them for a long time at any rate.

Hey, they're finally finishing the Meet The Team advertisements. And it only took them 5 years!

Maybe they are bringing back class specific grenades from TFC.
