Valve recruits Team Fortress 2 mercs for Steam Link video

There's less than a month before Valve releases the Steam Link. So how does the company go about telling people exactly what this thing is and what it can do? Hire the cast of Team Fortress 2, of course!


The Team Fortress 2 mercenaries are in the midst of a major community-led Invasion update. But that doesn't mean they don't have time to lend a hand to the company that keeps them working. No, not Mann Co. I'm talking about Valve.

Valve first unveiled the Steam Link back at GDC, but now it's looking like its arrival is imminent. To help spread the word on what exactly Steam Link is and what it can do, Valve has rounded up the TF2 mercs for a short video. As expected, Steam Link allows users to plug the device into any TV or monitor and stream their Steam library directly from their PC.

The Steam Link is set to arrive on November 10. To learn more, visit its product listing on Steam. Watch the video below to learn more and don't forget to join the mercs for the Invasion update. For fun, we've embedded that trailer below, as well.

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?
