Posted on June 28, 2012, Phil Hornshaw Valve Adds ‘Pyrovision’ With Third Team Fortress 2 Update
The last of the Pyromania updates has arrived to coincide with the release of Valve’s “Meet the Pyro” video for Team Fortress 2. If you haven’t watched that video, hit the link and check it out before continuing.
All set? Great, because now you understand: Valve is making Pyrovision, the view of the Pyro created for its latest Meet the Team video, a reality in TF2. Download the update and you get access to vintage Pyrovision Goggles, which allow you to see Team Fortress 2 in the way that the Pyro sees it (in a word: insanely).
Pyrovision Goggles also turn certain items into other things in your view — for example, like in the video, the Pyro’s flamethrower belches rainbows rather than all-consuming hellfire. All in all, it looks crazy and hilarious. Get more details on Valve’s Pyromania update page here.
