Team Fortress 2 Halloween update opens the Carnival of Carnage

Team Fortress 2's annual Scream Fortress update kicks off later today and it'll take the mercs to a playful carnival... OF DOOM!


It's been said before and it's worth saying again, it just isn't Halloween without Team Fortress 2 and its annual Scream Fortress update. While previous events are currently playable, there's nothing quite like a whole new holiday shindig and Valve is ready to welcome in this year's Scream Fortress, which will once again star the mischievous wizard Merasmus.

This year, Merasmus is feeling much more playful and ushering in Merasmus's Carnival of Carnage. In addition to new curses, the new Scream Fortress map will include a strange diversion called Bumper Car Madness. It's just like it sounds, putting mercs in the driving seat of deadly bumper cars.

Valve is coy on further details, with the event page adding little information, but it won't take long to find out what's what. The new Scream Fortress update is set to arrive later today and run all the way through November 12.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
