Valve is aiming to keep Team Fortress 2 going with new content, but not everything is quite ready for public consumption. So they're enlisting the help of their loyal player base to help test out new areas through an Early Access program for maps currently in beta. And while the standard game modes will be present, some new ones are apparently popping up, as well.

Valve is aiming to keep Team Fortress 2 going with new content, but not everything is quite ready for public consumption. So they're enlisting the help of their loyal player base to help test out new areas through an Early Access program for maps currently in beta. And while the standard game modes will be present, some new ones are apparently popping up, as well.



PC Gamer was the first to spot a brand new Robot Destruction mode in one of TF2's beta maps. The game mode sees the two teams of mercenaries infiltrating each other's bases to take down any machines lurking inside. The machines are defenseless (unlike Mann vs. Machine) and will run on sight, often taking pursuers into the path of opposing players. Robot Destruction can be found in the game's Asteroid map, which takes the mercs into space for the first time. The other beta map currently in rotation is a Payload map called Cactus Canyon.


Valve notes that players can mess around with the new beta maps by checking off the 'Play Beta Maps' option before entering multiplayer. Users can send feedback about the new content to Valve, indicating that anything you see is definitely not final. Those that run servers (like Chatty's own hirez) can also set their servers to host beta maps, so that they can try them out within their close circle of friends.

After a one-week hiatus, Chatty Twitch Highlights returns with great vengeance and furious anger! And in this post-E3, Steam Summer Sale world we're currently living in, there are plenty of highlights to be found. And there's no better game to lead off with than Battlefield Hardline before cringing through Outlast and taking it home with a good old-fashioned Team Fortress 2 Shackbattle.

Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of June 21, 2014.

We already got a taste of love with Team Fortress 2's sneak peek at the Love & War update. But now it's time for violence, now that the update has officially gone live. Players can now log into TF2 to grab some new cosmetic hats and taunts, along with some new weapons and bread-based collectibles.

The Team Fortress 2 countdown ended last night, revealing a new Love and War update. The first day revealed some new taunts and achievements to go with them, but the real star is the lengthy animated short.

Valve appears to be rolling out the red carpet for something big in Team Fortress 2. A countdown clock ticking towards today at 5 PM PT has appeared on the official site.

If you ve ever felt ashamed of games you ve picked up but never played, at least you can rest assured you aren t alone. A study into Steam playing habits has found that more than a third of all games purchased through the service have never been loaded up even once.

There's a lot of nostalgia on this week's Twitch menu, but not until we take a look at one of the more recent (and divisive) games of the last few weeks. Chatty's inc77 plays through The Elder Scrolls Online and actually likes what he sees. Meanwhile, Sapiens plays through the shooter that continues to live on nearly a decade after it was first released, Team Fortress 2. And dael takes us back in time with the PlayStation 2 classic, Shadow of the Colossus.

Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of April 12, 2014.

Valve has released a new Team Fortress 2 animated short! Oh, and a big update for the free-to-play FPS too, I guess. That's what the video is about, really. The patch focuses on TF2's co-op Mann vs. Machine mode, bringing two new urban maps and shiny new weapon upgrades, but also adds a new community-made Control Point map.

As we reach the dawn of Halloween, it's time for Valve's Team Fortress 2 to once again celebrate the holiday. The fifth annual "Scream Fortress" update is now live and will feature a new Payload Race map called Helltower. Oh, did I mention that everyone gets to wield magic? That's an important detail.
