Team Fortress 2 introduces Maps Workshop beta

Custom creation has been a major part of Team Fortress 2 for several years and now Valve is making it easier to upload and explore custom maps with the new Maps Workshop beta.


Team Fortress 2 has been pioneering custom creation on Steam for several years, ushering in the Steam Workshop back in 2011. Now the custom creation aspect of Valve's team-based shooter is expanding further by introducing the Maps Workshop.

Currently in beta, the Maps Workshop allows users to instantly upload any custom maps they may have created. Players can then browse the Maps Workshop and jump into any server running those maps. Those players can then up-vote and subscribe to any maps they like.

Valve will be looking for feedback on this new feature, which will undergo several changes before going final. For more information, check out the Team Fortress 2 website and be sure to browse the Maps Workshop right now.

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?
