Team Fortress 2 Getting Patched on 360 Soon, Map Pack Eventually
I’ve lost count at the number of updates and patches that have been released for Team Fortress 2 on PC. Unfortunately console gamers – especially on Xbox 360 – don’t have that benefit, what with Microsoft’s long certification process. A member on NeoGAF recently e-mailed Valve to see if they had any intention of supporting Team Fortress 2 on the 360 and got back a few bits of information.
An update for TF2 should be available before Christmas; it’s already in certification, but as we all know, that can really hold things up. “The update fixes several game-play exploits, improves bandwidth usage, improves stats reporting, and fixes some menu bugs. Most of the fixes that are in this update are in response to forum posts from both the PC and 360, and from direct in-game feedback from players.” the e-mail read.
The e-mail also confirmed that new maps are in the works, and while there’s no schedule for a release date, the most likely scenario is that the maps will be rolled out as they’re finished on the PC, and then later as a pack on 360.
Good things come to those who wait, although I can certainly sympathize with anyone who wants more constant support for TF2.
