The TF Workshop Arkham Knight Contest

October 28, 2015 - TF2 Team

This year's Workshop Contest is underway, and this time around we've got a doozy of an IP for the talented folks in the TF2 community to sink your teeth into: The dark knight himself. The caped crusader. America's favorite cave-dwelling orphan. And, as of today on Steam, the star of the conclusion to Rocksteady's epic Arkham Knight trilogy.

This is not a drill, you guys. This year we got Batman.

Here's how the contest works:

  • Submit your Batman Arkham video game-themed item or taunt (no weapons, please) to the Team Fortress 2 Workshop. There's no limit on the number of entries you can submit. However, each submission is limited to a maximum of two contributors. Contest entries must be submitted through the Team Fortress Item Import Tool and tagged with "Batman".
  • Entries are open from 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Savings Time on October 28, 2015, to 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time on November 16, 2015 . (Entries must comply with the Steam Subscriber Agreement, Workshop Supplemental Terms and Team Fortress 2 Workshop guidelines. You can also read the complete Arkham Knight contest guidelines here.)
  • When the contest ends on November 16th, we'll select up to three winning entries, which will be given out to all people who purchased the game up to that point. And remember, normal Workshop terms apply, so outstanding entries may show up in the TF2 store later on.

In addition to being featured as the Genuine-quality items awarded for Arkham Knight Steam purchase, the contributors who submitted the winning entries will (subject to the contest terms above) get a free copy of the following Warner Bros games on Steam:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Batman: Arkham City – Game of the Year Edition
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition
  • Batman: Arkham Origins
  • Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe
  • Mad Max
  • Lego Worlds
  • Bastion
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition
  • F.E.A.R
  • F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
  • F.E.A.R. 3
  • The LEGO Movie – Videogame
  • Scribblenauts
  • Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure
  • LEGO Batman
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition
  • Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4
  • Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7
  • Watchmen: The End is Nigh
  • Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2
  • Scooby Doo! & Looney Tunes Cartoon Universe: Adventure
  • Hot Wheels World’s Best Driver
  • Gauntlet

This contest runs through November 16th, and we'll announce the winners a few days after that. Whether you're an experienced Workshop contributor or a big Batman fan thinking about getting their feet wet for the first time, this is a great opportunity to try your luck. 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!

What We're Up To

September 21, 2015 - TF2 Team

First off, a reminder that the Gun Mettle campaign is ending (the last new contracts drop September 30th), so if you want to complete those contracts you'd better get to work. Speaking of getting to work, the TF2 team is busy putting together the next major update, which should be out by the end of the year. It'll feature new maps, cosmetics, and a new campaign with contracts and weapon collections. We’re also working on things like competitive matchmaking, perf, balance improvements and moving Mannpower Mode out of beta with a new map.

Sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that there’s something missing from that list: Halloween. The reality is, if we produce a holiday-specific event map this year, it means we'll have to stop working on everything else. So: We’ve decided to turn Halloween mostly over to you. This year’s Halloween Update will be a showcase of all the best Halloween-themed community content (items, maps, taunts and unusuals) you guys can come up with. We’ll also be activating every one of our past six Halloween Updates, so there'll still be plenty of spooky holiday-themed game modes to play.

Over the next month we’ll be looking through the Workshop for anything tagged “Halloween”, so if you’ve been working on an item you think would be perfect, make sure you get it submitted and tagged before October 18th, 2015.

Plus, if you didn’t already have enough incentive to submit to the Workshop, we’re changing our restrictions on Halloween items this year. Normally they’re only visible to players on Halloween and full moons. This year, all newly selected Halloween-themed items will have NO restrictions put on them, and may be viewed year round. (So don't get too gross or out-there with your submissions.)

Well, back to work! We’ve been incorporating plenty of great community feedback from our last update, so the next one should be even better.

Issue #5 of Team Fortress Comics!

August 31, 2015 - TF2 Team

Issue #5 is live! Man, it feels like just yesterday since Issue #4 came out. How long's it been since we released that, anyway? Let's see... one month, two... hm. three... four... wow, five...

Actually, let's not focus on how long it's been. The important thing is Issue #5's out! The last two should be coming out a little quicker.

Introducing Trade-Ups!

August 27, 2015 - TF2 Team

If you haven't already bought a pass to the Gun Mettle campaign, it's not too late! But it will be in a week, because we're going to stop selling them. So this is your last chance to get a Gun Mettle Campaign Pass. If you're thinking, "The Campaign's almost over, why buy one now?", the answer is that you'll still get access to all past contracts up until now, in addition to all of the contracts for the remainder of the campaign. There's still five weeks until Gun Mettle's over, soo that's a heck of a lot of chances to snag yourself some one-of-a-kind campaign-exclusive weapons.

Speaking of those: If you've got ten campaign-exclusive items just sitting around, we've got good news for you. Now you can trade them in for a higher-tier item! Simply click on any Gun Mettle item in your inventory and choose "Mann Co. Trade-Up" from the drop-down menu to give it a shot!

We're also shipping the Gun Mettle Cosmetic Case, an exclusive community cosmetic item collection now available as a weekly random drop for folks who own a Gun Mettle Campaign Coin. Just like the weapons, all of these 16 cosmetics have a chance to contain Strange capability, and the nine hats in the collection have a chance at being Unusual.

Let's see, what else? We've made it so you can now preview Gun Mettle cosmetic items in your inventory the same way you can preview Gun Mettle weapons. We've also added map stamps and strange filters for all of the community-created Gun Mettle Campaign maps. (Don't forget to submit your maps to the Maps Workshop Beta, mapmakers!)
