Massive Team Fortress 2 Update Coming; Xbox Players Also Getting New Goodies

Valve has just updated the Team Fortress 2 blog with a whole lot of information for fans to salivate over, including a few changes to some class skills, information on the next weapon pack, and even some good news for Xbox players. First up, it looks like the Engineer and Spy classes will be have to change their gameplay style a bit with some new tweaks to their abilities. Teleporters and dispensers can now be upgraded much like the turrets, but instead to cool down faster and deliver health and metal quicker, respectively. The Spy’s cloaking device can now also be recharged by picking up ammo packs. Valve stressed that these two classes will be getting their own class achievements and upgrades in the future. Speaking of class packs though, Valve also mentioned they’re now setting their sights on upgrading the Scout class next; so be on the lookout for that sometime in the nearer future. Finally, the company also announced that they would be bringing all the updates they released for the PC over the last year to the Xbox version as well.

That’s a lot of good news for TF2 fans. Hopefully we’ll see some of these new additions show up sooner rather than later. Of course, then I’m sure we’ll have nothing Spies, Engineers, and Scouts running around every server once they do.
