Intriguing. Well, the blueprint in the back shows what appears to be a robotic arm. So my guess is a robotic arm.

Valve killing it for post release support. It's been close to 3 years. I'm guessing this is the last major update for Team Fortress 2. This is the kind of stuff that make piracy irrelevant, as i would only get a fraction of a game now.

makes me wonder  ...WHEN will they support the xbox version . if they did im sure more people would play it

@turbomonkey138:  Around the War! update (Which we played together, by the way!) they confirmed they were still trying to work out 360 support. Something about the ways somethings are rendered visually with the new content made 360 work a bit tricky.

Did. People are too crazy good at it now for me to play it now and enjoy it. Still like reading about the updates though.

Hell yeah! I was actually just thinking about this today.

#22 Posted by hungrynun (444 posts) -

Totally stoked and ready for some fucking ROBOTS.

#23 Posted by GIVEMEREPLAY (821 posts) -

Oh my God it's a melee turret!!!

#24 Posted by Jaconius (145 posts) -

Robot arm THAT ATTACHES TO THE ENGINEER? That'd be bad ass, but doubtful. My guess is some sort of camera-controlled sentry. L4 anyone?

Man that would be really cool but I can't imagian that would be possible performance wise. Great idea, though. Maybe you could hide somewhere as an Engie and send out a little radio controlled car that can shoot. It'll take the view away from the Engie so that would be the risk that you might get backstabbed by a Spy or something but the good news is that you're still alive if your robot dies and you can make a new one. Maybe they'll give the Engie goggles that let him see enemy spies for a short period of time with a fairly long cooldown.

TF2 BOMBING RUN WHEN THE ENGIE UPDATE COMES OUT!

#36 Posted by IncredibleBulk92 (936 posts) -

Hmm I saw a robotic arm, a gas welder and a hammer.  I wonder how many of those will be in the next update.  Hope it's out soon.

Time to update the TF2 wiki page.

Depends on what you mean by 'major update.' Various statements from Robin Walker have stated that they plan to continuously release new items (like the recently added community items). They eventually want to have enough so that there are more items than backpack space, forcing players to choose what to keep instead of having everything.
 
I'm also sure they'll continue to release 'official' versions of popular community maps.

They buffed the homewrecker today, interesting seeing how the engie update is coming up.

#41 Posted by AliZeyk (20 posts) -
@Damolition:  I love the buff on the homewrecker on defense. It always sucked before when I killed the spy that was sapping my engies gear, but only after he managed to backstab him. Now I can do something about those darn things :).
