Team Fortress 2 est en promo à 10 euros jusqu’à vendredi pour fêter la sortie de l’update du Scout. La mauvaise nouvelle, c’est qu’il n’inclut pas de nouveau mode de jeu ou de map officielle. La bonne, c’est qu’il propose de petites améliorations auxquelles on ne s’attendait pas :

  • Added crit boosted on/off sound effects
  • Added new sounds for upgraded teleporters
  • Scouts earn a bonus point for killing Medics who are actively healing a target
  • Added several new speech concepts, mostly hooked up to new Scout lines
  • Spies can now control which weapon the enemy team sees them holding. Hitting the “last disguise” key while disguised updates the disguise to show the Spy’s currently held weapon
  • Changed backstab handling to fix facestabs
  • Spies disguised as enemy team can now see player IDs for enemies

Le prochain update concernera probablement le Spy qui est actuellement la classe la moins jouée.
