Valve Preparing Biggest Team Fortress 2 Update Ever

Valve trumpets the Team Fortress 2 Über Update as the most ambitious in the game’s history.

If you’re a Team Fortress 2 player, Valve is giving you some extreme love this week with what it calls the Über Update. Valve has been holding details about the update inside for months and says it’s the “biggest, most ambitious update in the history of Team Fortress 2.”

The company is bursting at the seams, so it’ll gradually release details about the Über Update in the days prior to its June 23 release date. A few details have already been released in cryptic, not-cryptic-at-all fashion.

On the Team Fortress 2 blog, Valve gave four clues about one of the Über Update’s surprises:

1.) It IS a “Meet the” short.
2.) It involves ONE of the two remaining classes.
3.) It’s NOT the Pyro.
4.) It’s the MEDIC.

Using my seasoned deductive skills, I have determined that Valve will release the Medic’s “Meet the” short on June 23. These shorts are CG vignettes that focus on a single Team Fortress 2 class and are generally entertaining to watch.

Additionally, Valve has announced two class packs coming to the Über Update for the Spy and the Heavy. Valve also gave us a shot of a new map called Barnblitz, the barn capital of the world. It’s like a barn playground.

To kick off the Über Update right, Valve is offering a week-long free “weekend” of Team Fortress 2 as well. Keep in mind that this is only the beginning of what the Über Update will offer, according to Valve. What other mysteries could it hold?
