Team Fortress 2 Uber Update

Postby ad_hominem on Wed Jun 22, 2011 3:37 pm

Team Fortress 2 just refuses to stop giving players free content. Yesterday marked the beginning of the Über Update to the 4-year old game, and it looks like there's a good amount of new stuff set to arrive, including a certain much anticipated video:



Valve are claiming this update is the 'biggest, most ambitious' one yet, and we've already seen new weapons and items for 4 of the classes, so it's worth keeping an eye out on what's still to come.

Day 1
Heavy Items: 'Tomislav' Minigun, 'The Family Business' Shotgun, and 'The Eviction Notice' Fists.
Spy Items: 'The Enforcer' Revolver, 'The Big Earner' Knife, and 'The Made Man' Flower(?).
New Map: 'Barnblitz' Payload map.

Day 2
Sniper Items: 'The Bazaar Bargain' Rifle, and 'The Shahanshah' Sword.
Demoman Items: 'The Splendid Screen' Shield, 'The Persian Persuader' Sword, and 'Ali Baba's Wee Booties' Shoes.
Scout Items: 'The Soda Popper' Scattergun, 'The Atomizer' Bat, and 'The Winger' Pistol.

Day 3
Soldier Items: 'The Mantreads' Boots, 'The Disciplinary Action' Riding Crop, 'The Liberty Launcher' Rocket Launcher, 'The Reserve Shooter' Shotgun, and 'The Market Gardener' Shovel.
Pyro Item: 'The Detonator' Flare Gun

Day 4
Meet The Medic Short
Medic Items: 'The Quick Fix' Medigun, 'The Solemn Vow' Bust of Hippocrates, 'The Overdose' Syringe Gun

Also: Team Fortress 2 is now Free To Play, forever.

they have new hats, but they are not talking about them, why talk about something that's visuals only?

The characters are wearing their new hats.

well, I rather like weapons with slightly different stats so you can find your own play style

I really really really wish TF2 didn't stutter freeze and lockup constantly. Especially since everytime I play after 30 minutes my computer completely freezes causing my RAID to check itself over which means I can't play for the next six hours without risking drive failure.

I like how the gameplay has evolved, but I hate how they are just like 'let's bloat the code up a bit, every single day'

Has anyone else experienced the same thing with every update giving me more crashes and lockups?

Well, my (XFX) nVidia GTX260 fails only when playing TF2. After 30min or so gameplay, screen goes black, sounds looping for a minute and then all goes back to normal and back to ingame. When exiting the game I see the windows pop-up saying that "graphics driver has recovered from crash" or something like that. And this only happens on TF2, so yeah..

by what means do you refer?

if you mean the "goomba stomp" that's been a custom server-mod for some time now.
