Pyromania Update Brings New Stuff to Team Fortress 2
Team Fortress 2 is getting three days worth of new content as Valve rolls out a new video feature detailing another class, the Pyro. In celebration (I guess?), the developer is also dropping new stuff during the next 48 hours, with the first update already available.
Up today is a new map called Doomsday, and with it, a new game mode. The map lets you “relive a piece of TF history.” Here’s the official description from the update page:
Doomsday pits BLU against RED, with only one team getting the honor of transporting a suitcase nuke full of recalled Mann Co. Australium to American monkeynaut Poopy Joe’s rocket, so he can blast off and hunt down Soviet space chimp Vladimir Bananas. It’s the same spirit of competitive enterprise that stalled the moon landing by three years when Buzz Aldrin suplexed Neil Armstrong into a pile of folding chairs at Astromania ’69! Both teams will attempt to get the necessary fuel up a preposterously slow-moving elevator and into Poopy Joe’s Australium-powered rocket to the stars.
There’s also a new set of 11 achievements to earn, and more updates coming Tuesday and Wednesday this week. At the end of that time, the video “Meet the Pyro” will premiere. Stay tuned for more details as we get them.
