Today is the TF2 Classless Update Day 2! We get to see 3 (sort of) new maps! These three maps were made for the new game mode King of the Hill (KOTH). There will be KOTH Viaduct, KOTH Nucleus and KOTH Sawmill. Personally I could have done without Sawmill being remade into a KOTH map but.. I guess we’ll see how that goes!

So I know you’re all sitting there wondering “What’s this new King of the Hill thing?”. Well to answer that question I’ll let the TF2 team do it:

King of the Hill (KotH) is an intense new game mode focused around a single central capture point that must be defended for three minutes. Gameplay begins with the point initially locked—after a short time, it will open for capture by either team. Once the point is captured by a team, their team clock will start a three minute countdown. If the enemy team manages to capture the point back, their clock will start counting down while the other team’s clock freezes at the time the point was recaptured.

Even though two of these maps are simply remade to fit the new game mode, one is completely new and deserves an explanation. So again I will let the TF2 team do that for me:

Viaduct is an all-new map especially built for KotH, set outside of the entrance to a secret underground base. Viaduct is also the first Team Fortress map to take place during a snowfall. Both teams start at the base of a low hill, and will have to climb to get to the capture point at the hill’s peak. The various elevations of the map and multiple routes to the central point guarantee some frenzied battles as the point changes hands during gameplay.

New Hats

From left to right: “The Tyrants Helm” – “Backbiters Billycock” – “The Brigade Helmet”

It’s that time again ladies and gentleman! Team Fortress 2 updates are back. All those hats you HAVEN’T been finding just might turn into more hats you’re not going to get! Well, we hope hope that’s not the case anyway. Valve is releasing eighteen new hats, since they seem to be such a popular item this is not a surprise.

The TF2 team has released photos of some of the new upcoming hats in this update. It seems they’ve listened to the players and are going to give the Pyro his freakin’ fire hat.

Also, there will be a new map coming. Arena Offblast looks like a mix between Nucleus and Badlands. You can bet they’ll have plenty more to come in the next six days. Here’s a peek at some hidden pages:
