TF2: Sniper Update

BY Andrew Miesner / April 1, 2009


The next class pack will focus on the Sniper. It’s actually shaping up to be the largest TF2 update yet, with multiple new maps and a bunch of gameplay tweaks. In addition, we’ve got another update in the works that should be done before the Sniper, and that one will include some new content for all classes. The XBox 360 update is still being worked on. If you’re wondering what’s taking so long, since the content is “done” on the PC already, it’s mostly been around fitting it all onto the XBox. The original version of TF2 in the Orange Box was very close to the XBox’s memory limit, and all the additional TF2 content we’ve produced has pushed well beyond it. We’ve found a couple of nifty ways to get back a bunch of that memory, but it’s turned out to be a lot of work, and that’s what most of our time is being spent on. In the meantime, we’re going to get a code update out to address the server cheating that’s going on. – Greg Cherlin
