What you can expect from the new TEAM FORTRESS 2 Updates


For those not in the know, Team Fortress 2 is a team-based first person shooter game. It has nine classes, where two teams will take up the battle to eliminate each other. It is currently free-to-play on Steam.

Over the last two days, the developer has indicated that there have been some updates for the game. The first update is the larger of the two and features some major changes, including some Christmas goodies for players. Here are the patch notes for the update:
