When’s the Pyro update? When’s the Pyro update? When’s the Pyro update? Okay, okay, we’ll tell you. It’s Thursday! (19th). When’s Meet The Sniper released? When’s Meet The Sniper released? When’s Meet The Sniper released? TUESDAY! (At 11am PDT/7pm GMT, to be specific).
This will lead into another of Valve’s free Team Fortress 2 weekends, so even the most unsure can check out the Pyro’s three unlockable weapons and 35 new achievements (if they play fast enough). Also in the update are two user-created TF2 maps, which Valve say is to, “highlight the great work being done in the community and distribute those works to all TF2 players.”
TF2 goes free at 11am PDT (7pm GMT) on Friday, and will stay that way until you run out of weekend. This should give everyone, even the cheapskates and paupers, a chance to find out what the other non-unlockable chances to the Pyro will be. Speculate below.
Meanwhile, I can promise Meet The Sniper is worth looking forward to, even if you were a weensy bit disappointed by the last two (although being disappointed by Meet The Scout’s Boinking makes you very stupid). It’s the best of the lot, with a peculiarly subtle depth of backstory, and some of the biggest laughs.
