3A is currently bringing back the Zepheniah Mann's Ghost 8" figure from Scream Fortress 1 for a brief limited-time sale. If you'd like a suitably spooky keepsake of Scream Fortress, get in while the getting's good.
One of the best parts about working on Team Fortress is that we have the ability to try new things. Sometimes this means "let's try making Halloween minigames that revolve around bumper cars!" and sometimes, like now, it means "let's try a new way of doing promotions".
Rather than working with the developers to have them produce some promotional content for the upcoming Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris that we hope you'll like, we're involving all of you guys directly — you who submit content to the Workshop and who vote on it.
Square Enix has agreed to open up the Tomb Raider IP so that we can have a contest. All of the Tomb Raider games are fair game, so if you've been waiting for your chance to put the heavy in short shorts, this is it. (Please don't do this.) You're welcome to pull from your favorite villains, heroes, levels, or any bit of lore. Because this upcoming game takes place in the classic Tomb Raider universe, we'd like to steer you towards the classic Lara games, rather than focusing on last year's "Tomb Raider".
The contest works like this:
In addition to being featured as the Genuine-quality items awarded for pre-purchase, the contributors who submitted the winning entries will (subject to the contest terms above) get a free copy of the upcoming Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. And pretty much every Tomb Raider game available on Steam:
In case that wasn't compelling enough, Square Enix has also agreed to grant the winners free copies of almost every one of their Steam games:
This contest runs through Thursday, November 20th, and we'll announce the winners a few days after that. Whether you're an experienced Workshop contributor or someone thinking about getting their feet wet for the first time, this is a great opportunity to check out the item import tool and get to work. If you aren't interested in submitting content of your own, we're still counting on you to head over to the Workshop and vote on the entries that you want to see in the game. Good luck!
Step right up, mortals, to Merasmus the wizard's Carnival of Carnage... now LIVE in Team Fortress 2!
Very soon, fear-fans, the Halloween update other game companies aren't BRAVE enough to give you is coming! And those other companies are right to be hesitant! Last year's Scream Fortress update hit Valve with a tidal wave of wrongful death lawsuits! That's right: Everyone who played last year's update DIED mysteriously! The only clue was that everyone's hair had turned snow-white!
They died of FEAR, reader! Or possibly premature hair-graying! We're not doctors. No, OUR jobs are to be your ringmasters at this year's Scream Fortress Update! Check out the teaser Update Page to get a taste of what's coming!
A very recognizable, very handsome face has made a surprise appearance in SpeedRunners! Check it out!
Celebrating the foundation of the Lithuanian eSports Association, The BETA LAN Party gives Lithuanian and neighboring country TF2 gamers a chance to gather in one place, participate in various tournaments and meet new people. This year's TF2 event will be held at Kaunas University of Technology; all participants will receive in-game medals, and the top three winners will be awarded with ZOWIEGEAR gaming peripherals.
Arena: Respawn is an Arena mode server mod created by awk and seven from Win/Lose/Continue, with a creative twist: capturing a point respawns of all the dead players on your team, and capping or standing on a point you already own marks you for death.
It's become incredibly popular, and is definitely worth playing if you haven't given it a try yet. Plus, if you're worried your TF2 skills might be getting a little rusty, Win/Lose/Continue has also helpfully created Training Wheels, for players who'd like to learn how to get better in a low-pressure environment.
