Valve’s Valiant Valentine Victory

Not to be outdone by Beavotron and her awesome TF2 themed Valentine’s day Cards, Valve has decided to up the ante with a valentine gift wrapped up as an update to Team Fortress 2. There will be a multitude of updates, as displayed on their Steam News page.

Most of the changes are in the form of map updates. Updates to Dustbowl, Granary and CTF_Well are included, but most notably is the release of the highly anticipated new map, Badlands.

Valve also updated the sniper class slightly to disable getting a critical hit until 200ms after you zoom in.

SourceTV now uses a hidden slot on the game server. This allows for 24 player servers to also have a SourceTV proxy connected to it.

IGN also has a bit to say.

Tomorrow at 11 am PST all PC versions of Team Fortress 2, the class-based multiplayer action game named PC Game of the Year by, will receive its largest update since the product was first made available on October 10, 2007, as part of Valve’s best-selling Orange Box compilation.

That’s all folks, too bad most of us won’t be able to enjoy the updates until Friday.
