Team Fortress 2 gets "largest update" ever

What Valve is calling the "largest update" to date for Team Fortress 2 on PC should be ready to surge down your Steam pipe at 11am tomorrow.

The update includes new map Badlands - a revamped version of the map TFC players will be familiar with - general optimisations and new iterations of Dustbowl, Granary and CTF_Well maps that have been tweaked for "for enhanced performance and gameplay".

Cue bullet-point list...

  • The free update includes global optimizations for networking, graphics, and player statistics, plus improvements to Source TV for tournament viewing.
  • In addition, three of the currently available maps (Dustbowl, Granary, CTF_Well) have been iterated for enhanced performance and gameplay.
  • The release is headlined by the introduction of Badlands, a new map that pushes control-point gameplay onto vertical landscapes.
