Valve has updated Team Fortress 2's inventory to include five iconic items from Bethesda's most notable properties including Fallout, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Brink, Rage and Quake. The items were added to TF2's growing collection of silly hats and sponsored gear to commemorate the start of QuakeCon 2011, but have yet – at time of print - to be made available for download.
Up for grabs is Fallout's Pip-Boy and Rage's Wingstick, for the Engineer; Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's Tamrielic Relic helmet, for the Heavy; Brink's Anger mask, for the Sniper; and Quake's Original rocket launcher, for the Soldier. The automatic update also fixes a few TF2 bugs, listed here.
It's unclear how TF2 players will gain access to Bethesda's promotional items, however it's likely that mystery will be solved at some point during QuakeCon.
TF2 recently became free-to-play for PC and Mac users, and most recently added Weta weapons to the game as part of a Comic-Con promotion. No word yet if Valve will stock the Mann Co. Store with ceremonial Bat'leths for The 13th Annual Klingon Feast in September, but seriously, how cool would that be?!
