Team Fortress 2 (TF2) is the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map. This year’s most anticipated online action game, TF2 delivers new gametypes, a signature art style powered by Valve’s next generation animation technology, persistent player statistics, and more.
Unlike other “class-based” games that offer a variety of combat classes only, Team Fortress 2 packs a wild variety of classes which provide a broad range of tactical abilities and personalities, and lend themselves to a variety of player skills.
TF2 features the most advanced graphics of any Source-based game released to date – and the most exciting class-based action ever created.
Half-Life 2: The Orange Box will be released on October 9, 2007, at $49.99 for the PC version and $59.99 for the X360 and PS3 editions.
