Team Fortress 2 Mecha Update Goes Live

Team Fortress 2 is celebrating Christmas and the end of the world with a brand new update, introducing a new robot class and a new map. The new class is called Mecha-Engineer and has the ability to warp around. “So, you battle-hardened MvM vets think you’ve got that whole “stopping murderous waves of robots” thing figured out, huh? Well, re-check those figures, because the robot hordes just added a deadly new class to their clanking, soulless ranks: The Mecha-Engineer! And as the incredible art above this paragraph illustrates, it will be over one hundred feet tall! (It will not.) Not to worry, though, because it looks like Engineer will also be one hundred feet tall! (He also will not.)”

As for the new map, it’s called Big Rock and is by far the largest Man vs Machine map yet. “If that sounds like the easiest MvM map ever devised, you’re right! Merry Smissmas everybody! Well, you would be right if Gray Mann hadn’t invented the deadly newMecha-Engineer class. These Grinch-like Smissmas cakewalk destroyers can skip huge areas of the path with their teleporting ability, and also teleport other robots forward instantly with their “telling other robots about the teleporter” ability.”

Another thing to be noted is that the Naughty and Nice crates are back from last year. The naughty ones contain a set of limited edition festive weapons while the Nice ones will gift winter-themed community items. They will only be available until January the 3rd, 2013 so you might wanna hurry up and play.
