Between the update nearing release and the free-to-play announcement, it's TF2 mania on Steam! The servers are currently getting hammered, so watch this while you wait.
The hits just keep on coming. By now, you know the drill: Team Fortress 2's upcoming Über Update is unloading new items for every class, with the latest two being the Scout and Soldier. Crafty types will know that the Scout pack was hidden in the Timbuk Tuesday post, but we're all seeing the Soldier items for the first time. Check 'em out, if for no other reason than to lay eyes on the first weapon to buff your allies when you smack them with it (medi-gun heals don't count).
Activate nerd shivers and/or chills. Team Fortress 2's official website was just updated to showcase the incoming Über Update, and this looks like the update to be crowned king of all free content updates. Hailed as the "biggest, most ambitious" addition of content in TF2's history, it's sure to be a doozy. With the announcement of Mobster Monday items for the Spy and Heavy classes, confirmation of the incoming Meet the Medic video, and a new Payload map, we're already itching to try out all the new goodies. Check out what's coming your way when the update gets released this Thursday!
