Helltower is the New TF2 Scream Fortress Map
Team Fortress 2 Scream Fortress 2013 is now live, and it transforms all RED and BLU mercs into magicians.
I’m not kidding.
Valve is having some serious fun with this year’s Team Fortress 2 Halloween special. The new map is Helltower, a Payload variation that replaces the bomb with a corpse cart. Players will attempt to push the corpses of the Mann brothers into hell (read the latest TF2 comic to learn why) and to get there we’ll have to get past the other team as well as a horde of animated skeletons. To help in the spooky cause, Valve is giving all players a spell book for acquiring and casting spells. No word yet on what those spells actually are, but I’m looking forward to finding out.
In classic Scream Fortress fashion, there is a final climactic battle Valve is calling the Witching Hour, and you’ll want to win the Helltower race to ensure you get some buffs to get out alive.
Last but not least: hats! Yes, there are more than 100 new items to be had including the Hound’s Hood and the Terrier Trousers, which will make your character look like a dog. Woof.
Team Fortress 2 Scream Fortress 2013 is now live and will run through November 11.
