Available now until November 8th, Valve's free Second Annual Scream Fortress update treats gamers to a monster-sized grab bag of Halloween content including the new Mann Manor map, randomly dropped Haunted Halloween Gifts, four new 'scarechievements' and Team Fortress' first boss monster, Horseless Headless Horsemann.
Always one with the words, Valve's website offers: “If you joined us for last year's TF2 Halloween Special, then you're probably reading this with white hair in an insane asylum, because it was pretty darn scary. If this is your first Halloween Special, we should warn you: These introductions have been known to cause heart attacks. Because there are Dracula's right behind you! [sound of thunder]”
Halloween has always been a carte blanche occasion for developers to go a little crazy with DLC, and Valve has always been...well...a little crazy (in a good way, of course). If you haven't loaded up Team Fortress 2 in a while, this might be good incentive to resurrect the modern classic.
