Team Fortress 2 Interview

March 29 2007

One of the games I am most looking forward to this year (well, I thought I would be playing now, but such is the world of computer game release dates) is Team Fortress 2. It will be included with Half Life 2: Episode 2 later this year ... and bring a breathe of fresh air to the Half Life 2 multiplayer community (sorry folks, but CounterStrike sucks). Not only is TF2 going for an look ... very cartoon like, but they are changing much of the gameplay from Team Fortress (for Quake 1) and Team Fortress Classic (for Half Life). They are removing all grenades from the game except for the Demoman (no more Medic conj jumps) and really modifying the class roles to be much more specific. Overall, I am looking forward to the game.

Here is the interview and below is a great picture of what to expect .. that is the new Sniper and the new Spy.

    Wow, it was about 10 years ago when I last saw prom videos about it TF2. I hope the HL2 engine will not make TF2 another Doom-Clone, since the original TF2 had cool things like that you could turn your upper body in a different direction when running in another direction. Ah yes, I found the original video: { Link }

    Everything you saw about TF2 10 years ago is gone Mika ... they are going back to the old TF gameplay. And if you consider TF to be 'a Doom-clone' then you probably should not buy the game ... this is all about class-based multiplayer with tactics
