It would have been understandable if Valve had skipped out on Team Fortress 2's annual Scream Fortress update. After all, the publisher did drop one of the game's biggest updates in years less than one week ago. But Scream Fortress IX isn't just coming, it's already here.
A new Team Fortress 2 update post details everything coming in Scream Fortress IX. This time around, it's simply the classic Scream Fortress maps all playable. But as players go around and make mischief with Merasmus, they may also notice that they've been granted special Halloween contracts for free. These contracts are being added to the player's ConTracker, with special rewards available upon the completion of any contract.
