Bethesda promo gear added to Team Fortress 2

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?!

    @Jackthemenace Try telling that to all of the tf2 traders that want that hat. It's in extremely high demand atm since it COMPLETELY negates the coolness of the villains veil misc for the sniper.

    @ThatGuyFromTV Thats because Brink was basically a shitty ripoff of TF2,and its art style gameplay, and character design is extremely similar

    That Pip-Boy looks pretty badass.

    Pipboy fits the engineer. Skyrim hat fits the Heavy. But while the Brink hood translates oddly well to TF2, it doesn't fit the Sniper. Put it on the Scout instead.

    Pity the Sniper's gear is so shit. Did anyone even LIKE Brink?

    Must have Pip-Boy for my Engineer.

    Some of those things look cool, but I never spend money on frivolous items like new outfits (unless it's for charity, like the Humanitarian's Hatchimaki was).

    I just got my Genuine Pip-Boy (I've been meaning to pick up New Vegas and it's on sale for $15). it's amazing. it looks totally badass in 3rd person and replaces the standard PDA build screen with a green, Fallout-style screen with the Engineer Vault Boy on it. I absolutely love it.

    I preordered a physical copy of Skyrim quite a while ago (for the awesome cloth map), so I'll sadly have to pass on the Dragonborn hat. That Pip-boy is awesome, though. It's even got an Engineer-like Vault Boy on the screen! xD

    YES!!! Bat'leths are the only thing missing from TF2.
  • thatnerdguy1 - August 4, 2011 6:45 p.m.

    ...And you can get this stuff by buying the Quakecon Pack!

    I forgot TF2 is free on Mac, I need to go pick that up today. The Brink headgear looks oddly awesome on the TF2 model.
