Germany Gets Freeplay TF2 Weekend

Team Fortress 2 Rejects

Achtung, Baby! German gamers are getting a weekend of free Team Fortress 2 chocolatey goodness. Valve has sent word:

All gamers in Germany may experience what many are calling the best multiplayer game of 2007 during the Team Fortress 2 Free Weekend, offered exclusively to German gamers via Steam January 4th through 6th.

The Free Weekend is open to all gamers in Germany during the event. To participate, simply visit and install the free client. To maximize the free play time, Team Fortress 2 is available now for pre-loading, so players can have everything installed and ready to play the moment the Free Weekend begins on Friday, January 4.

The Team Fortress 2 Free Weekend in Germany will conclude on Sunday, January 6 and no purchase is required to participate in the free weekend.

Now, my curiosity begs me: If someone calls for a medic in the German version of TF2, do you hear “Medic!” or do you actually hear something like “Doktor!” or “Arzt!”? Inquiring (American) minds want to know.

Even if the audio files weren’t the original ones in the german edition, one would scream for a “Sanitäter” or “Sani”, which is the german word for medic.

He’s right. It’s “Sanitäääääääääääääter!!!” or “Saniiiiiiiiiii!!!” :wink:
