Team Fortress 2 Details

As noted on the Steam Forums, a new issue of German gaming magazine PC Action has new details about Team Fortress 2 (thanks xXBatmanXx). There is a translation of the significant details on Halflife2.net, where they have details on classes, maps and gameplay, and some general details. Here are the general details:

* There won't be "normal" grenades anymore. Valve thinks that they unify the different classes too much.

* Unlike in Fortress Forever, teleporters are kept in Team Fortress 2. The ammo dispenser will make a comeback as well.

* There will be a personalized statistics system. For example, you could see an in-game message like "Hey, you've never played your class as well as today - keep it up!"

* Valve thinks that classes in other games are a joke. "Where's the difference between me choosing a M16 or an AK-47 rifle?", asks Robin Walker.

* It would be technically feasible to let owners of a PC, XBOX 360 and PS3 play against each other. Whether this feature makes it into the final game is still uncertain and depends on Sony and Microsoft.

* Valve received very few threatening letters because of TF2's comic design.

* Owners of multicore processors will get additional, undisclosed, graphics details.

Hmm, I need to add another point to the list...

TF clone maker's check list:

You understand that Robin Walker said it, who MADE the original TF?
