The Team Fortress 2 Blog
has another update on the Soldier
war currently underway in Team Fortress 2. The post points to a newspaper image
that points to an article introducing a new crafting system
for the teamplay shooter and a new Team Fortress 2 Saxton Hale Comic
in throwback Jack Kirby style. Word on the Crafting system is: "EVERYTHING in your inventory now contributes towards something you actually WANT, and can build YOURSELF! If you’re super clever, you’ll even be able to craft new items before others can earn them the old fashioned way." Here's more:
Blueprints—some of which you’ll get right off the bat, others of which you’ll have to puzzle out on your own—will tell you which ingredients you’ll need to combine to make different items. Think of blueprints as recipes, but instead of making Chicken Cordon Bleu, they makes guns! And hats! And Sandviches, which in retrospect would have helped our analogy better if we’d mentioned that first. No time to correct it! We’re in the middle of a WAR here—this Crafting information needs to get to the people!
