No, the next major update for Valve's oft-expanded FPS Team Fortress 2
won't be without elegance and social graces -- they adequately covered that base with the Sniper update's piping hot jars of urine
. Rather, the update won't favor any particular class
over another, distributing goodies to every class, and adding new maps into the ever-growing mix.
The first of these non-class specific additions is -- brace yourself -- new hats
. Eighteen new hats, to be precise, which presumably add two new hats to each of the game's nine classes' wardrobes. (Math'd!) The first map to be revealed is Arena Offblast, a tricky little battleground perched atop a shear mountain cliff. Players will need to stay wary of the cliff's edges, lest they plummet to their death, and stain their lovely
new hats with gray matter.
Stay tuned to the TF2 blog
-- they should be adding more information about the classless update in the coming days.
