The TF2 team is busy working on further, larger scale updates to the game so they won’t be making a new Halloween event this year. However, all the previous year’s special game modes will be available as a stand-in plus a batch of new items. This was announced via a particularly scary blog post last night.
For more of the greatest FPS games on PC, try this.
Here’s what they will be delivering, in lieu of a new game mode:
- Community Halloween maps with attached custom contracts
- New Halloween taunt
- A new item that makes other taunts have “unusual effects”
- Cosmetics case, presumably with a spooky theme.
So while new gameplay additions aren’t on the near-horizon, plenty of hats to be had. On the major patch front, they did also give a sneak-peek at what they’re currently working on, though with no details:
- A Pyro Pack
- Competitive mode improvements
- A “big new update and campaign”
Given this is Valve, when all that will arrive is about as easy to guess as the release date for Half-Life 3. “Soon” is probably a good estimate, with some amount of it coming this year. For the full Buscemi-’n’-eyeballs blog post, have a look on the official site.
