Team Fortress 2 'VR Mode' adds Oculus Rift support

Team Fortress 2 'VR Mode' adds Oculus Rift support

Ever since Oculus Rift was unveiled, modders have been working on unofficially adding VR support to many PC games, including Valve's classic Half-Life 2. However, Valve has been experimenting with VR as well, and plans on launching an official "VR Mode" for its popular free-to-play shooter, Team Fortress 2.

Field Report: Team Fortress 2 'Mann vs. Machine'

Field Report: Team Fortress 2 'Mann vs. Machine'

After nearly five years of fighting over control points and briefcases of intelligence, the mercs of Team Fortress 2 have a new challenge before them--mechanical monstrosities looking to destroy any and all things bearing Mann Co.'s name. TF2's new Mann vs. Machine mode introduces co-op for the first time, bringing up to six players together to fight back the soulless automatons. To do my part in the fight, I jumped into Shacknews community member re-verse's server to fight alongside fellow Shackers against the robotic menace.

Team Fortress 2 'Mann vs Machine' coming August 15

Team Fortress 2 'Mann vs Machine' coming August 15

As many Team Fortress 2 fans have already puzzled together, a new co-op mode is coming to Valve's free-to-play online shooter. Called "Mann vs Machine," this new mode has six human players waging "a desperate battle to stop a lethal horde of robots from deploying a bomb in one of Mann Co.'s many strongholds." Essentially, it is a horde mode. With robots. And in typical horde fashion, you'll be able to upgrade your abilities and weapons in between waves. Surviving will let you earn "incredible loot." The new mode will also be accommodated by brand new maps as well.

Adult Swim and Valve present: a Team Fortress 2 hat

Adult Swim and Valve present: a Team Fortress 2 hat

"I wonder what kind of hats this collaboration will bring about..." - howlthorne

It looks like the Shacknews community hit the nail on the head. Adult Swim and Valve's collaboration has been revealed... and it is a hat. No, not a hat you can wear in real life, silly. It's a free "limited-edition" Robot Chicken hat for use in Team Fortress 2.

Team Fortress 2 gets 'one-of-a-kind' moneyhats

Three special new hats have been added to Team Fortress 2, but only three--ever. These "one-of-a-kind" hats move from player to player each day, going to, essentially, whoever's willing to spend the most money on various items in TF2's in-game store.

Team Fortress 2 'top secret' project in the works for 2012

Team Fortress 2 'top secret' project in the works for 2012

In spite of having released in 2007, Valve is continuing to update Team Fortress 2, its cartoony team-based multiplayer shooter. Last year, the developer announced a surprising change to a F2P model--but what's next?

The developer isn't saying much, simply promising "something brand new for 2012" that "isn't a hat" and "isn't a map."

"It's a fine game. Its departure from traditional team fortress style is only half welcome, though."
