I'll leave the news thread with some random gaming news site as a source for someone else to make, I just wanted to mention that Team Fortress 2 is free to play this week. This coincides with a major update coming on Thursday, June 23rd. There should be a good amount of new weapons as well as the Meet the Medic video. Valve is going to be releasing info on the update on a daily basis. What has been revealed so far is here. The first day features a full set of new Heavy weapons, a new revolver and knife for the Spy, and a new Payload map, all on Mobster Monday! Update Summary: Heavy: Black Market Business Tomislav: Minigun - +75% faster, silent spin-up time. -20% slower firing speed. The Family Business: Shotgun - +40% clip size. -15% damage done. The Eviction Notice: Fists - +50% faster firing speed. -60% damage done. Spy: The Man of Honor The Enforcer: Revolver - +20% damage done. 0.5 sec increase in time taken to cloak. The Big Earner: Knife - +30% cloak on kill. -25 max health on wearer. The Made Man: ? - A gentleman always has a flower handy to drop on an opponents grave. Map: Barnblitz - "Prove that you’re 'born in a barn' (secretly in the Mafia) with this Valve-made Payload Map! Show your enemies you can 'hit the broad side of a barn' (be really good at the Mafia) while you make them 'buy the farm' (quit their Mafia jobs and becomes farmers) on one outdoor and three indoor capture points (including a final indoor capture point)." Personally, I'm most excited about the new minigun. It seems like a better way of dealing with the faster classes and could lead to stealth heavies, which should be interesting to deal with. It's also nice that the Heavy finally gets a replacement shotgun, instead of the food. I'll try to keep this thread up-to-date as more info is released.
