Team Fortress 2 smiles for the camera

At the end of last week, for anyone who missed the news, Valve Software let slip that Half-Life 2: Episode Two will ship with Team Fortress 2 included. In the wake of this announcement, the developer has released the first image from the revamped, team-based multiplayer game. Say hello to the TF2 classes, which reveal the new art direction for the title.
Valve describes Team Fortress 2 as "an all-new version of the title that spawned team based multiplayer action games" that "features the most advanced graphics of any Source-based game released to date." As with TFC, players leap into the shoes of a medic, spy, solider, engineer and so on "and must work together to complete a variety of tactical objectives."

Waiting till summer 2007 BLOWS HARD !!

But I will still pick it up

Capt CHAOS6358d ago

I just know this will be worth the wait, even if for just Counterstrike Source and TFC!

- I'm sure the game will be cool too!


Half-Life 2: Episode Two delayed untill summer 2007

Valve's Doug Lombardi today admitted that Half-Life 2: Episode Two will be delayed untill summer 2007, instead of early 2007. This automaticly means that Portal and Team Fortress 2 won't be released earlier either.

well i guess they may use the extra dev time to implement some nice dx10 trickery into the source engine.

Capt CHAOS6375d ago

Still, a shame for the delay though..

BoneMagnus6375d ago

This helps my wallet for the winter - and guarantees a great game to play this summer.

The PS3 keeps causing games to be delayed, they can't get much to work on the 7600gs gpu in the ps3.

HL2: EP.2 was orignally made for pc, but was pushed to the consloe with the rest of HL2. This is because Valve needs the extra money. Maybe for developing HL2: Ep.3. So stop blaming the PS3 for your life problems. You people really bug the sh*t out of me with your arrogance.

PC gaming beats the crap out of console gaming anyday. Ever heard of Crysis?

Mikey_Gee6374d ago

That blows HARD .. this was one I REALLY WANTED ASAP.

I hope the polish the crap out of it even more since they now have FAR TO MUCH TIME till launch in my books.

Aaaaaaaarrrrrghhhhhhhh !!

Portal Interview

CVG dive through a portal with Valve's Kim Swift amd Doug Lombardi to discover more about the world of puzzly weirdness.

When Half-Life 2: Episode Two launches early next year, it'll come packaged with two tasty extras - Team Fortress 2 and, what we're concerned with here, Portal. Portal, for those recently emerging from under a rock, is a puzzle style game where players use a 'portal gun' to open entry and exit portals to solve, well, puzzles. It sounds weird and indeed is a real head-screw to watch in action, but with Valve Software at the development helm you can be sure it'll be as entertaining as it is odd. CVG coght up with Kim Swift, one of the members of the Portal dev team, and Valve's Doug Lombardi to find out more...

I thought this game was pretty intriguing when I downloaded the trailer from Xbox Live. I am definitely going to give it a good playthrough. Team Fortress 2 looks fun as well. The fact that both of these games come with HL2 as a bonus just makes it even better.

zonetrooper56399d ago

I would get this game for the PC but my PC is kinda crappy so i'm getting it for my Xbox 360.

Jaireme16399d ago

I am definately going to pick up HL2. I have never played it before, but the trailers and the fact you get three games for the price of one is hard to pass up. That portal game looks like its going to give me a bald spot trying to beat it. It is a remarkably fasinating and mind boggling game. It will a breathe of fresh air when I get tired of playing and beating my other PS3 games.

ryanjtravis6399d ago

What a fantastic game package... Portal and Team Fortress 2 look like they are going to be good (if not great). It is not often that you see such quality titles in a "bundle". We are lucky to have companies like Valve, who obviously care about gamers and making great games. Kudos, Valve.

Mikey_Gee6398d ago (Edited 6398d ago )

I have HL2 for PC ... but to be honest ... I have been a HL fan FROM THE START and "I WILL" buy it and RE-PLAY it on my 360.

Since I know it is coming to the 360, I did not bother buying the expansions for my PC version since it will be bundled. (plus .. BIG SCREEN with MAX GRAPHICS is better than my PC experience .. and my shat kicking surround sound in the living room IS A MUST)

Think about it

- HL2
- the expanded episodes
- portal play
- Team Fortress 2 (I love the look of it and it it is anything like the original .. IT ROCKS)
- Counter Strike Source


How do you beat that ????

Not to mention the Multi-Player stuff is FRICKEN WICKED (TF2, CS .. if you never played it .. get ready)
