Check Out the New Team Fortress 2 Map Goldrush

Team Fortress 2 `Goldrush` Movie

If you’re looking forward to the new Team Fortress 2 content as much as I am, you’ll want to take out a notepad before you start playing the video above. You’ll be treated to a guided tour of the new Goldrush map, although there’s no audio so you might want to open up Audiosurf in the background and get a TF2 track playing.

This is the first map for the new game mode Payload, where one team escorts a mine cart from one point to the next. The cart moves faster as more of the team’s players are next to it, but stops if an enemy enters the vicinity.

From the video, it looks like this is going to simultaneously be an Engineer’s paradise and hell. There are plenty of great places to set up a sentry gun, but with the nature of Payload, they’re going to have to be ready to abandon their turrets so that they can build new ones further into the level.

For me, as someone who plays mainly as a Demoman and Spy, it looks like this is going to be a great setup for spamming sticky bombs and backstabs.

I know, right? I kept expecting it to stop, but it just keeps going.
