Team Fortress 2 Trailer 2!

While I was mostly a CS person, I don't think there's a single FPS gamer out there who doesn't appreciate what the original Team Fortress did for the genre. It introduced classes to the genre and its concept of defending and attacking bases paved the way to games like the Battlefield series.

Now Valve is about to do it again with the upcoming release of Team Fortress 2 for the Source engine. What's most interesting about it is the extremely intriguing art direction which you can take a look at by clicking the image to the left. It looks like it was created by the same creative team that did The Incredibles! The distinctly cartoon-style graphics mesh perfectly with the physics of the game and serve to make the personalities of each of the classes stand out.

Below is the latest trailer released highlighting many of the different classes available. While it is still uncertain whether or not it will actually feel like this when we play...at least it looks like a helluva lot of fun. But the real question is how much of the video is scripted...In any event, watch below and ENJOY! For those interested in downloading a high resolution version of the trailer, I've included a link below.

    • Hey. Just thought you might like to know that it seems Team Fortress Two is finally going to be released when they say it is. The amount of interviews and footage that's being released really supports that they will keep to their September/October deadline this time.

      If you're as excited as I am, you may find this page useful.
