Team Fortress 2 to become F2P game

Sorry about the lack of updates recently guys, some IRL stuff has been dragging me down. Saw this last night and thought it was a pretty big deal.


In an interview with Team Fortress developer Robin Walker, the company seems to have decided to make the game completely free to play. He states that they have tried different pricing over the game's lifespan, including some periods of free-to-play, and says it fits the multiplayer component in the game's current state as Valve wants to grab as many users as possible.

TF2 already being one of the most popular PC shooters, I have no doubt that we will see a tremendous bump in activity from this announcement. In fact, go ahead and grab it now! http://www.teamfortress.com/freetoplay/

The game also just received a huge update called the 'Uber Update', and imo it's a fantastic shooter. If it's free you have no excuses to NOT have this game!

I'm not sure what to think of this. Collectively, through purchasing for friends and the like, I've bought this game 5 times over. However, people getting the game that otherwise might never give it a try could be a good thing. Hopefully it doesn't shake the community too much.

wel seeing as i bought his game years ago (in the orange box) i dont reaaly care if its free to play or not. what i do care about is the 2 terrabyte patches i have to do everytime i want to play the damn game. i wish they would leave it alone tbh. tf2 is good as it is. it doesnt need patchin
