Linux News Today: Team Fortress 2 Gets Update on Steam for Linux
The Team Fortress 2 multiplayer game developed by Valve has been upgraded once more, and developers have integrated a large number of suggestions from the community.
The Team Fortress 2 multiplayer FPS is one of the most played games on Steam, and developers need to work constantly on it. Most of the fixes and changes are about balancing the gameplay and about adding new items and such, but this also makes each update very important.
Even if the game is free and advertised as a free-to-play title, it’s probably the best example of what an F2P game should be like. Players can buy a lot of stuff for their characters, but none of those items is gameplay-related. They can’t buy weapons or better armor, so the gameplay is not affected in any way. Players need to be good on their own, and no amount of money will make them better than anyone else who is also playing.
What’s new with Team Fortress 2
According to the changelog, the DeutschLAN 2015 tournament medals have been added, a client crash related to fonts has been fixed, a client crash for users who had model quality set to low on maps with static prop lightmaps has been corrected, a bug where Strange Dalokohs Bars were incorrectly counting Allied Healing Done events as Allies Extinguished has been removed, and Strange Sandwiches can now accept Allies Extinguished strange parts.
Also, the materials and model for The Rotation Sensation have been updated, some PASS Time updates have been implemented, and some localization changes have been added.
Team Fortress 2 features a large number of multiplayer modes, such as Capture the Flag, Control Point, Payload, Arena, King of the Hill, and more. Players can choose one of the nine classes: Scout, Soldier, Pyro, Demoman, Heavy, Engineer, Medic, Sniper, and Spy.
