There was an incredible amount of goodness in The Orange Box, last year's compilation of Half-Life 2 and its two episodes, the brilliant and hilarious puzzle game Portal, and the cartoonish multiplayer mayhem of Team Fortress 2. Fans of wild multiplayer games were drawn to Team Fortress thanks to its colorful, Pixar-like look as well as its intense class-based warfare.
However, as TF2 veterans know, there were only a handful of maps and modes to play with. But Valve is looking to introduce a brand new map and mode later this month, and IGN were on hand last night at a Valve event to check out Goldrush for the very first time. And, heads up, it's really good.
