The new downloadable content (slash) update for Team Fortress 2 prophecy
is slowly becoming a reality, with confirmation that changes will be in place within two months.
Talking to ShackNews
, Valve has confirmed that Team Fortress 2
fifth of the Orange Box
, will be receiving an update that'll bring significant gameplay tweaks aimed at being a "large scale modification to the core of the game," that will "debut in a limited fashion through the Medic first, but it'll be affecting all classes eventually". Specific gameplay changes were not detailed, but we do know they will rollout as part of the Medic Achievement Pack which, as it sounds, will bring 36 new achievements
to the medic class. Valve also mentioned that they are working on two new multiplayer maps including a remake of Team Fortress
's classic map Badlands, but both maps are currently slated to be only available on the PC with a 360 release yet to be determined.
There's a bunch to look forward to for TF2
fans, but we can't help being a bit bummed about the uncertainty of the two new maps releasing to the 360. We are also torn about the medic class getting all the tweaks and achievements, while the other classes sit on the sidelines. And 36 new achievements? That has to be a mistake ... right?
