Valve announces Team Fortress 2

Valve announces Team Fortress 2

Valve just announced that PS3 and 360 ports of Half-Life 2 are to be released next-year, in a big pack containing the game as well as the two "Episodes", Portal (a solo game featuring experimental gameplay) and... Team Fortress 2. Yep, THE Team Fortress 2. With its shaders-filled cartoony look, the game seems pretty far from what it used to be when it was still using the Quake Engine... And I must say I'm totally seduced. Are you ?

If that's the game's graphics, it looks really good.

My guess concept art. But who knows--since it may be "ground up" for PC/PS3/Xbox 360 ??

Either way, I LOVE the art direction and could see such a lookg excelling on the current hardware.

I loved TF way back on HL1. High hopes for this!

It's no concept art, this is how the game looks-like in-engine. And it rocks.

wow looks like toy story style graphics. No idea how they have done that with the source engine.

Really great character designs.

/me faints

If it has this sort of IQ in game... it will push me to buying it even though I already own HL2/CS:S.

I think the lighting looks too complex in that shot to be actual in-engine stuff, but I don't doubt it looks very close to that.

Never heard of Team fortress, whats it about?

Will Half Life be getting an appropriate upgrade graphically on the next-gen consoles?
Commented on 2006-07-15 04:50:41
Doubt it. If you ask me, HL2 still holds its own against next-gen offerings to date.

Thats awsome, love the artstyle, really can't wait for this game.

It's a class based multiplayer FPS.
Really fun.

Looks dull.

Definitely getting this.

I hope that Day of Defeat and CS: Source are coming for Xbox, too.

looks neat..

Quote from TXB.com
"Unfortunately, it seems that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions won't include Team Fortress 2, which will be part of the PC combo. "-sad if true.

I allready do have HL² on PC and i don't care about the episodes but if valve/ea announced TF2 for 360 i'd definitely get this - TFC was one of my favorite games back then :)

Looks like the Incredibles lost their powers and are going to war.
Commented on 2006-07-15 10:54:34
Awesome stuff... read this on IGN yesterday.. like snooper said this is how the game is gonna look in-game.....
Commented on 2006-07-15 11:06:04
I love the new graphical style, nice that they're doing something different with the source engine.
Commented on 2006-07-15 11:54:50
Hope this will be in the 360 and PS3 versions. I don't care about CS: Source, I want this multiplayer game on my 360.
Commented on 2006-07-15 12:01:24
Not liking the art direction in this much.
Commented on 2006-07-15 12:19:52
why is everyone saying they'd buy it even if they already have HL2... I mean, won't it also be released on steam as seperate? Like always? I pretty sure you'd be able to buy just team fortress 2 on steam... or mabye the pack minus hl2 etc etc.
Commented on 2006-07-15 12:29:21
My PC can barely run HL², CS:S is almost impossible to play and it will be the same with TF².
Therefore I prefer buying a game i already own + additional stuff than just buying the additions.

Looks like a good team game.

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
