Team Fortress 2 Scout Update Hits Steam, Valve Running 50% Off Sale Through Friday

Valve today launched the anticipated Scout update for its multiplayer class-based shooter Team Fortress 2.

The update adds new Scout achievements, three unlockable weapons--the Sandman ball and bat, Bonk energy drink and Force-A-Nature shotgun--and three community maps to the mix. The update did not include a new mode, "Meet the" movie, or a Valve-created map, all oft-rumored potential additions.

Valve has also reduced the cost of Team Fortress 2 by half until Friday, bringing the price down to a paltry $10. The discount follows a popular half-off Left 4 Dead sale, which netted overall sales that beat the game's original launch.

      They were just playing with you, like the gullible gamers that you are!

        Indeed, it's another of their little jokes, like claiming to have fixed facestabs.

      I e-mailed Gabe asking for confirmation that they were still working on it...he's known to e-mail people back sometimes so, we'll see.

        I hope you mean Gabe Newell, because if it's just your mate Gabe from down the road he might reply but I wouldn't count itas a reputable source.
