Team Fortress 2 Teaser

Team Fortress 2 Teaser

Valve released this nice teaser for Team Fortress 2 presenting the Heavy Weapon Guy and his lovely gun. It's too bad it doesn't actually show the game, but it's still entertaining.

Haha "Cry Some More! "

Looks great, the faces are starting to look more lifelike (despite the obvious extragerated shape) but everything else stays rather cartoony, like the barrel flashes =/

woohoo, finally some more team fortress 2 footage! I hope Valve will show some more from Half-Life 2 Orange Box soon.
Commented on 2007-05-15 13:39:45
haha, that was a nice little vid. Shows the mind of the heavy weapons dude really well. Loved it.

Can't wait for the game. It's bound to be extremely succesful IMO...

Really cool video. It would be really great if Valve will make more videos presenting other characters

Yeah, all pre-rendered though.

One of my most anticipated games in years. Absolutely love the style and the gameplay should be great. Very funny trailer/teaser, hopefully we get one of these every week or so until the game is released. This game needs a LOT of exposure if it hopes to survive the Halo/GTA landslide in fall, as well as the glut of FPS titles (Bioshock, Medal of Honor, Brother in Arms, The Darkness, Unreal Tournament 3, The Club, Army of Two, Battlefield Bad Company, Mass Effect, etc) as well as a lot of good titles in general. This should rank in the top 3 FPS in quality, so lets hope it gets the hype it needs.

Commented on 2007-05-15 16:20:32

yes, the whole game is. don't know if this is what it'll look like in-game though, maybe this is slightly enhanced


do you know what one of the funniest things is about this video (apart from the guys facial expressions hehe)? the box that says "fragile ^UP" is the wrong way around :P
Commented on 2007-05-15 17:08:24
this is in-game footage. Just watch the footage shown of the game on the 1up show, and tell me if you see any difference except the HUD
Commented on 2007-05-15 18:15:04
emotaku [japanese translation: em(o)freak] Yes, what you see in the link is prerendered, what you see in this video, is not. Don't care if anybody claims it pre-rendered, since I know it's not. [at least the game looks exactly like this while running.]

It's real-time.

-------------------------------------------
We are pleased to announce that the next generation of facial animation technology for Source will be released in Team Fortress 2. By leveraging the rapid pace of advancement in PC graphics, videogames can now match and actually surpass the facial animation used in feature film and broadcast television production. We've released a video of this real-time, in-game, in-engine facial animation in action in support of ATI's launch of the Radeon HD 2000 series. By running entirely on the GPU of the videocard, the facial animation not only looks dramatically better, but frees up the CPU to perform other tasks like physics or AI.

This technology is available to all Source engine licenses as well as MODs based on those games.

It's going to get a lot of attention on the PC side of things I think. The PC space will be getting a landslide of FPS's soon as well.. but we're still sorta in the calm before the storm. The franchise history/namesake should also help it do well on PC I think.

You have a loose definition of FPS though. Army of Two, The Club, and especially Mass Effect don't really fit into the same genre imo. Especially when you consider that this is a multiplayer only type experience.. and Mass Effect is an RPG :)

hahahaha, that's amazing. I cant wait to see the trailers for the other chrs.
Commented on 2007-05-16 05:45:37
Valve can do no wrong. These guys get it. I love games with a sense of humour too. I hope we get a trailer like this for every chr. Go Valve!

    Nietzsche @docLEXfisti: I also enjoyed Justice League. The CGI is poor at times like the villain but the character chemistry is very well done. Very funny too! (18 minutes ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti We have Overwatch, watch my son play it sometimes... it just doesn't appeal to me. Rainbow 6 might be worth a look... (2 Hours ago)

    docLEXfisti Got to play a bit today: you appreciate how shooting feels in Halo 5 even more if you try out SWBF2, mediocre at best - this is made by D.I.C.E.? (3 Hours ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti It was fluent and over quickly (like GotG2), which is a good sign... (not like Civil War i.E., where I wanted to turn off after 40 mins). Different ppl, different tastes I guess ;) (3 Hours ago)
