I do know it’s nonetheless accessible and being performed, however Crew Fortress 2 can at instances really feel like a recreation from a special age. Partly as a result of it is, but additionally as a result of it’s so previous—and has gone so lengthy with no main replace—that you simply’d be forgiven for considering it was on its final legs. However no!

The sport’s web site—which charmingly hasn’t appeared to have been up to date because the recreation’s launch—hummed into life as we speak, posting a information weblog referred to as “Consideration, Steam Workshop Creators!”. It says that not solely will the sport be getting a “a full-on update-sized replace” later this yr, with “with objects, maps, taunts, uncommon results, struggle paints and who is aware of what else?!”, however that the replace may also embody some contributions from the sport’s neighborhood as nicely.

Steam Workshop Creators, can we’ve got your consideration please. The next message is so pressing, so time-sensitive, we made the manager determination to skip TikTok and Twitter completely and break the glass on probably the most bleeding-edge communication expertise accessible.

Welcome to the long run. Welcome… to a “blog-post”.

“Wow!” you’re most likely considering. “I forgot how onerous studying is!” Yeah, it’s scary how briskly you lose that. Don’t fear, we’ll be temporary:

The previous few Crew Fortress summer season occasions have solely been merchandise updates. However this yr, we’re planning on delivery a full-on update-sized replace — with objects, maps, taunts, uncommon results, struggle paints and who is aware of what else?! Which suggests we want Steam Workshop content material! YOUR Steam Workshop content material!

So get to work! (Or again to work, if you happen to have been already working however received distracted when all the web concurrently discovered about this state-of-the-art blog-post.) Ensure to get your submissions into the Steam Workshop by Could 1st, to allow them to be thought-about for this as-yet-unnamed, un-themed, however nonetheless very thrilling summer-situated (however not summer-themed) (until you needed to develop summer-themed stuff) replace.

That is the primary excellent news the sport’s neighborhood have had for some time, since over the previous few years the one issues outsiders have heard about Crew Fortress 2 has been the big points the sport has had with bots, and the userbase’s subsequent protests about it.
