Valve the developer of “Team Fortress 2” on Friday announced that from now onwards “Team Fortress 2” game will be free to play and download for PC & Mac users.In addition, the Uber Update has been released along with details on updates to the medic class.
Team Fortress 2 is a colorful, hilariously goofy and popular team-based first person shooter game, the game portrays two teams of players against each other in online, militaristic combat. Players choose from nine classes like Scout, Soldier, Heavy, Engineer and more.
The announcement initially came as part of a Develop interview with TF2 project lead Robin Walker, and was later confirmed via press release late last night.
So now the game is free forever, but how will Valve benefit from this free model. Here is the catch, instead of selling copies of the game, valve will earn money through in-game purchases such as hats ,additional weapons and other wearable items.
