Adds Doomsday arena and fuel-running game mode
Valve just announced the 'Pyromania' update for Team Fortress 2, which comes out the day of the release of the much-awaited 'Meet the Pyro' short.
If you didn't know, Valve will release a 'Meet the Pyro' digital short in collaboration with Adult Swim.
Well, the digital movie will arrive this Wednesday. It will be the final entry in Valve's series -which introduces players to the game's nine classes- and the first since June 2011's "Meet the Medic".
Now, in order to celebrate that, Valve will release a Pyromania update for TF2, which will add a new map called "Doomsday" and a fresh game mode.
"Doomsday pits BLU against RED, with only one team getting the honor of transporting a suitcase nuke full of recalled Mann Co. Australium to American monkeynaut Poopy Joe's rocket, so he can blast off and hunt down Soviet space chimp Vladimir Bananas," it explains.
"It's the same spirit of competitive enterprise that stalled the moon landing by three years when Buzz Aldrin suplexed Neil Armstrong into a pile of folding chairs at Astromania '69! Both teams will attempt to get the necessary fuel up a preposterously slow-moving elevator and into Poopy Joe's Australium-powered rocket to the stars."
The update will also bring 11 new achievements. You can check the full list on the official TF website below.
Well, there you go! Remember, the game update will also arrive this Wednesday, so stay tuned!
